I love lifting weights, but would rather go cut, split load some firewood to make money. I joke with the wife about putting up a sign in town trying to get folks to pay me to be a member of my exclusive “lumberjack club” buy a bunch of saws and axes and have people pay me to cut wood so I can get rich and they get buff. I’m not even old yet and get reminded of football every morning and many times a day some days. That’s the stupidest thing anyone can do to their body. I’m 6’3”, 330 not a thin guy, but I can bench press almost 1.5x my weight and somehow passed the insurance physical the other day without getting upcharged for weight. I wear the same size pants I did in college, but I’m up a shirt size. I’d like to drop some weight for sake of my knees, but I’ve never had luck just loosing fat. I do convert fat to muscle easily, but that usually adds weight. Chiropractor told me no matter what don’t let my back muscles go, the muscle is holding the spine in place and my 6 bad disks don’t currently bother me one bit.
