Richard Poorman, 20, weighs 170 pounds on a 5-foot-10 frame.

He didn't mean to hit the Poorman, who had to go and die.

Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.

When Chuck Norris has sex with a man, it is not because he is gay, but because he has run out of women.

Macgyver can build an airplane out of gum and paper clips, but Chuck Norris can kill him and take it.

Chuck Norris once roundhouse kicked someone so hard that his foot broke the speed of light, went back in time, and killed Amelia Earhart while she was flying over the Pacific Ocean.

Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.

If you ask Chuck Norris what time it is, he always says, "Two seconds till." After you ask, "Two seconds to what?" he roundhouse kicks you in the face.

Chuck Norris only &@$%.. horses are hung like Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris was the fourth Wiseman. He brought baby Jesus the gift of "beard". Jesus wore it proudly to his dying day. The other Wisemen, jealous of Jesus obvious gift favoritism, used their combined influence to have Chuck omitted from the Bible. Shortly after all three died of roundhouse kick related deaths.

To prove it isnt that big of a deal to beat cancer. Chuck Norris smoke 15 cartons of cigarettes a day for 2 years and aquired 7 different kinds of cancer only to rid them from his body by flexing for 30 minutes. Beat that, Lance Armstrong.

There are no disabled people. Only people who have met Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris does not have AIDS but he gives it to people anyway.

Chuck Norris uses ribbed condoms inside out, so he gets the pleasure.

There is no chin behind Chuck Norris' beard. There is only another fist.

Chuck Norris once lined up to kick the winning field goal of a high school football game. When the football went flat, he persuaded the referees to let him kick the field goal with a 3 month old child. Chuck roundhoused kicked the baby 60 yards through the uprights and then proceeded to bang every girl in the stadium.

The original theme song to the Transformers was actually "Chuck Norris,more than meets the eye, Chuck Norris,robot in disguise," and starred Chuck Norris as a Texas Ranger who defended the earth from drug-dealing Decepticons and could turn into a pick-up. This was far too much awesome for a single show, however, so it was divided.

The chief export of Chuck Norris is pain.

Chuck Norris sued NBC for copyright infringement for their show "Law & Order." Chuck Norris' left leg was already named "Law" and his right leg "Order."

When the company I worked for decided to move their business out to Ogden, he and a few members of the town council came to our office and did an Odgen presentation to entice employees to move with the company.

That's really all I got. Very tiny guy....

Your BMI is about 17.3 That's not bad especially considering you're a runner. Sometimes being technically underweight can be healthy. Not for me though. I'm a chick, and my bmi is 17.6 even though I just sit on my ass all day. I think I have an overactive thyroid or something.

And rises again two days later.

gradatim, I'm sorry if you're not comfortable in your own skin, but I'm sure you'll get over it. And if not, there's always binge eating. Delightful coping mechanism, I hear.

I'm 5'11" and 180 lbs. could stand to lose a pound or 10 but I start looking anorexic about 165ish. I don't understand...

But anyway, props to the mayor for taking the kid down, but did he really have to ruin it by all the "let the police handle it" crap?

Think about it... if EVERYONE expects everyone else to act right, the police wouldn't have to be involved nearly as often.

That word, "vigilante". I do not think it means what you think it means.

eat lots of protein throughout the day and just bench, clean and jerk, squat, deadlift, etc... try bodybuilding.com they got tons of workouts and diets, i'd say go more for exercises that build strength as opposed to muscle (b/c thats really more important when you need it) and usually they still pack on muscle just not at the same speed.

something about that town. i used to ride motorcycles with a girl from Ogden; she was 5'8 and maybe 130lbs and could kick the everloving crap out of most guys twice her size. before the weapons she carried, that is.

Here's a tip: food. Eat a lot of it. Worked for me.

Rule 1: Completely ignore everybody else in the gym.
Rule 2: Figure out what your body is good for and push it.
Rule 2: See rule 1.

You're not there to best anybody but yourself.

Eat a half a dozen hard boiled eggs for breakfast. The whites only, throw the yolks away. Eat a lot of breakfast.

For body mass, concentrate on push ups and bench presses, and also on parallel bar dips and wide grip pull ups (or pull downs, depending on the machine you're using.) These will widen your chest. Work on your shoulders by doing dumbell exercises. Ask some ironhead to show you the routine. It's pretty standard.

Do squats. Lots of squats. This is the only exercise proven to increase the body's production of testosterone. You increase overall body mass with squats. Again, ask an ironhead to show you how to do sumo squats.

Also, ask an ironhead to show you the 'Turkish' routine.

Work on the treadmill. You probably have a large capacity for endurance. Work it.

Also, see rule 1.

Work it until you see red.
If you start getting queasy by the end of workouts, start drinking a SlimFast before the workout. It will give you a few calories to work on and it will coat your stomach so you don't get the wallbanger's barf.

Walk out of each session enjoying the hell out of the endorphin rush.

When you have worked yourself up to it, my favorite, once-a-week routine involved a step aerobics class, an hour of cranking weight, and a yoga class. That's the biggie. Yes, aerobics feels a little faggy at first, but then you realize the addiction to the pheromone output of some thirty, fit, sweating women is quite manly.

according to the other article linked in the thread:

Godfrey, a long-distance runner, stands 5-foot-6 and weighs 135 pounds. Poorman, 20, weighs 163 pounds on a 5-foot-11 frame, jail records said.

...would make the mayor (should that be capitalized?) pretty much exactly the same size as me. Naturally, I'd be a little slimmer, but I've 'bulked up' since starting Jujutsu. There are dudes at my gym though who are even smaller than me and could kick my ass without even breaking a sweat.

The old martial arts adage of "Never underestimate your opponent" is still a good one. Besides, even if they can't beat you down you never who might just draw a knife or a gun on ya!
 
2007-10-24 09:31:48 PM  
Tats is right.

There was this little, squimpy kid in Judo who could flip my 220 lb. ass to the mat like nobody's business.

Oh, more advice for the kid going to the gym;

Work on dexterity. Juggling, handball, martial arts; that stuff.

Also, see Rule 1.
Ignore the steroid monsters. You're never going to be hugemungus.
Go with your strength, not your weakness.
 
2007-10-24 09:31:56 PM  
It was staged i tell you! I lived in Ogden and Godfrey is a moron! Couldn't catch Avian Flu in a Chinese Fowl Factory!
 
2007-10-24 09:34:40 PM  
As a 5"3 woman I am getting a kick out of these....
Does size really matter? I grew up with 2 older brothers and I been known to punch really good. But then again, in order to survive with 2 older brothers you have to learn how to punch and how to take a punch to the face.
Maybe, Im just the odd one here.
 
2007-10-24 09:39:10 PM  
If you ever get to the real serious, three times a week routine, then design an "A Side" and a "B Side" routines to work in alternation. For every muscle there is an opposing muscle. So the "A Side" will work your biceps and the "B Side" will work your triceps; quads, hamstrings; calves, shins; stomach, back; like that.

You might also look into stairrunning. I never had the endurance to follow that seriously, but you might get a lot out of it.
