First off, I don’t know anything about this Bieber kid. He may be very nice. I have no idea what he does, I’ve heard he sings but have never heard a song of his. I’ve heard he’s a heart-throb to young female teens but others say he’s a fag so that’s confusing. He’s a celebrity, I understand that. And since the press decides who we admire, they’ve decided he’s it. For now.
In traditional fashion, they (the Press) also tell us what type of body shape we should admire. Yes, I know. Kate Moss’s ‘coke skinny’ has been all the rage for years. Since I never aspired to fit that mold, it never phased me. But J.H.M.F.C., when they say this:
…is an example of “Perfect Pecs”? It pisses me off.
You know who the ultimate “fail” award goes to in all of this? These stupid mothers who want to be their daughters best friends and find that adoring the body of a permanently pre-pubescent, low testosterone’d (oops, I said the T word) “male” prevents their daughters from wanting to drop their pants for something like this:
…when they get older. Because wouldn’t it be so cute if your daughter could share her boyfriend’s jeans when they get to that stage? Awwww…they’re both a size six. Precious.
Fuck that. Newsflash: men are big and strong. If they’re not, they’re lacking. Sorry (but really I’m not.) It’s a mothers job to put over a half gallon of whole milk; a pound of bacon; and at least another pound or two of some other type of meat on the table each day. We celebrate our 12 year old’s reaching over 155 pounds and doing farmers carries in the driveway. Are we concerned about childhood obesity? Uhhhhh, no. Duh. Our boys train. And those of you with daughters? We instill now that our daughters will be independently strong and if they outsquat/outpress/outdeadlift any potential suitor, these silly boys better not show up at the front door until that’s fixed.
Now I’m crabby. So we need a cleanse…
Now I’m completely distracted. What where we talking about?

At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be.
tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned.
I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better.
Matt WanAt is a retired Professional Strongman who competed frequently with Strongman Champions League in Europe. He played a year of D1 football with Iowa before concentrating on his Chemical Engineering degree in Iowa City. He is a native of Wauwatosa and still remains a staunch supporter of Tosa East.
This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.

It’s a good thing that it’s a fake cover. This is the real one is here http://www.menshealth.com/mhguys/images/april09big.jpg
Focus. The message.
I understand what you are saying. He definitely doesn’t have a physique worthy of being on the cover of Men’s Health, which is why he wasn’t. He’s famous for being a singer, not a bodybuilder. Don’t worry, people aren’t admiring his body.
Oh Spencer. You’re so very wrong.
Wait, are people really saying that Justin Bieber has a good body? I’ve never heard that in my life. No one I’ve ever talked to has told me they want to have a body like Bieber, or date someone who has a body like his.
Justin Bieber is a millionaire (or more) based solely on his looks. It’s likely a good thing you’re not in tune with pre-teen and teen girls around the world…I assume.
I guess that we can agree to disagree on this subject. Ask any 17 year old girl who’s body they like the most, and ask any 17 year old male who they want to look like… I doubt anyone will say Justin Bieber. Pre-teens may be a different story, but I don’t talk to 12 year old girls too often about whose body they think is the best looking.
Agree to disagree is a bullshit term. I don’t. You came here. You’re wrong.
