I’m still not sure exactly why, but I have a MySpace page – myspace.com/joestankowski.
If you know anything about MySpace, you’re probably already familiar with the ridiculous “surveys” floating around – most of which I suspect are to gather personal information and steal your identity (even if they are written by 12 year olds)
Notwithstanding the fact that I’m a responsible adult (and have a life) I wouldn’t ever take one of these data-mining exercises seriously, but today I thought I’d have a little fun with some of the questions right here at “the cup”. Enjoy.
– Are you smiling?
Only when I deadlift
– Do you drink beer?
Of course. Milk is for babies – Arnold said so.
– What do you want?
To deadlift more weight. What else is there?
– Are you any good at poker?
Why would I play cards when I can deadlift?
– Pepsi or Coke?
Varsity post workout drink by ProGrade. It has the 2:1 carbs to protein ratio I need and it tastes great!
– Do you ever throw up?
Only after a good workout.
– Do you use a pencil or pen?
I write with lifting chalk.
– Do you believe dreams come true?
Only if you have a solid periodization plan and restoration strategy.
– What are you wearing on your feet?
Barefoot. I’m getting ready to deadlift.
– What was the last thing you ate?
A chocolate-almond supershake (recipe from Precision Nutrition)
– What were you doing before this survey?
Thinking about deadlifting.
– What is the closest item near you that is black?
A stack of 45lb Olympic weights.
– What is the last movie you watched?
Bill Hartman & Mike Robertson’s warm-up video
– Where was your default MySpace picture taken?
At a tattoo shop in Gary, Indiana the day after a powerlifting meet.
– Why did you pick your background?
If it was anywhere else, the tiger would have tried to kill me.
– What is irritating you now?
Knowing that somewhere in the world, there are people who will never have a chance to deadlift.
– Do you have a dog?
No. They don’t have opposable thumbs, therefore they cannot deadlift.
