Everyone say hi to my best friend @ryankwills!
The picture on the left is from high school. I took it on one of the many days I forced him and my brother to try on weird clothes at the mall lol. (Am I the only one that used to try and humiliate my brother and guy friends in public?) He was always a lean bean!
Flash forward to just this past year when he was deployed in Afghanistan. Proof that hard work, time and dedication pay off! #RealLifeGIJoe #iMissYouComeHome
okay today i learned that apparently the penis has a say in whether or not a child will be a boy or a girl
female sperm swims slower than male sperm, but the males can’t swim for as long as the females. this means that a long penis will be closer to the egg when releasing the sperm, and there will be a higher chance for the child to be a boy.
so in conclusion
if you have a lot of sons you have a big dick

6 Reasons to Take a Break from Workout Machines
They isolate specific muscles. There’s a reason they put those little diagrams highlighting which body parts are getting the work—because that’s pretty much all these machines, with their fixed positions and movements, do. While it’s not a bad thing to focus attention only on, say, your biceps, you’ll get a much greater benefit from doing multi-joint moves like rows and pushups, which hit your arm, shoulder, and chest muscles all at once. But remember, even if your goal is to target one certain area, you’ll still have to combine resistance training with cardio.
They could be a waste of time. ”If you only have 30 to 60 minutes to exercise in a day, then spending 20 minutes on one machine and most likely working one, maybe two, muscles is not an efficient workout,” says personal trainer Melissa Farley, founder of Washington DC-based FITtrition. Instead, her advice is to incorporate as many muscles as you can, using plyometrics, body weight workouts, and flexibility exercises.
Machines aren’t one-size-fits-all. This reason is a no-brainer to the 5-foot-nothing lady who can’t get the seat right no matter how she shifts it. Other issues can include handles that are too far apart, pads that aren’t in the most comfortable spots (ahem, boobs), and seats that are too deep or wide for an appropriate perch. Which brings me to my next point…
They often have you sitting down. And let’s face it, we all do way too much of that already. Farley’s motto: “Get off the machines, and start working your bum instead of sitting on it!” By simply choosing exercises that you do standing up, you’ll engage your core and the important stabilizer muscles in your legs all while making those larger muscles work.
They aren’t “functional.” That means they don’t actually prepare you for the way your body moves on a regular basis. In fact, they’re pretty much the polar opposite. (That is, unless you often take a seat before you push a heavy door open or lift something bulky onto a high shelf.) A standing cable chest press is a much better choice for improving your shoving power, while dumbbell overhead presses better prepare your shoulders for that lifting and balancing act.
And some are downright unnatural. Certain machines put your body into pretty compromising positions. For example, the one labeled “hip abduction” touts that it’ll tone your outer thighs, but when seated, much of the onus for all that leg-opening effort is on the piriformis, a deep hip muscle. It’s usually already tight, and also located right next to the sciatic nerve, so overworking it is a definite don’t. A much better option: lateral band walks, in which you put a resistance band around your legs and take sideways steps. Another bad boy: The torso rotation machine, which has you lifting a heavy weight stack by twisting half of your body (upper or lower, depending on the design) away from your middle. The idea is to trim your waistline, but you’re more likely to end up with lower-back strain than a tinier midsection. Instead, stick with side planks to really work your obliques.
