    Humble preface: To start, I'm not a "huge" guy, everyone here who knows me knows this. Haven't really been able to lift as consistantly as I'd like, but I'm really trying to not let travelling for work affect my lifting routine.

    That said. I'm 5'10'' on a good day, and roughly 235. Not exactly small. Because I have to fly so often for work, I've gotten used to checking seat selections, and trying to get in a spot where I don't have to bump elbows with someone else.

    Well fuck if its not my luck, I roll up on the plane, and theres no choice for that, I have to share a small ass 2 seat row, with a 280lb bb'er. Most awkward 2 hours of my life :rofl:

    We had to take turns leaning forward, and leaning back... god it sucked.

    although, I had brought supertraining with me because I decided I wanted to make it another chapter in, but f'it, when you have a 40yo bb'er whos been in the game for 20 years, I took advantage of picking his brain for pretty much the entire flight.

    ibcoolstoryhansel - or whatever the fuck the new bandwagon is.

    he's just a retired ameteur... still very much in the game, just not competing anymore.

    it was a very interesting take on the history of bodybuilding and the irongame in houston.

    He was telling me about all the old school gyms in Houston, most of which had closed down. How at Hanks Gym in Bellaire, there used to be a guy roll up in a 300z, and sell test right out of his trunk (1988~) - and continued after the ban in 1990... did federal time.

    I asked him about the evolution of his program, and he said he started lifting heavy like any kid who starts lifting. If he had it all over to do again, and the way he will train his son is to body part by day split, body weight at first, high reps, and move towards compound movements as his body adapts to the training.

    He told me about all of his experiences of being on, and what its like being later in life where his natural test production is now down, and how he is basically going to be on test for the rest of his life to maintain a high level.

    We talked and joked about all the retards who put way too much weight on the bar, and aren't getting a thing done.

    Idk, same shit everyone in the irongame talks about. I just enjoy shooting the shit with guys who've obviously been doing it for a while.

    IDK - I thought the hilarity of 2 larger than average guys, sharing 2 itty bitty seats in an airplane was a funny enough thought in of itself to post about.

    Did they have to shift a few dozen passengers to the other side of the plane to level it out? :noes:

    that actually happens occasionally... if there are a lot of PLers on a flight they'll move people around if the weight distribution is off
