Career Chat

I didn't know about this thread till just now but I've been in the job hunt market lately. I'm looking to make a switch in career paths from software dev into pre-sales/solution engineering. Basically, a little lighter on the technical/head down type of work and more social interaction and presentat...

DYELB: The Gainz Train

Wasn’t supposed to lift today since I donated blood, but I felt fine, so went in with michelle to her gym and hit a lighter weight high rep chest day. Felt surprisingly good. Didn’t get as big of a pump as normal, but still had a dude come over at the end of my workout and ask me about competing an...

All solid recommendations. The Crosstrek definitely crossed my mind since my wife has an Impreza, and they're essentially the same car just with a height difference.
I'll come and personally remove your :balls: if you go with a Crosstrek.

Not a requirement anymore, but it still is preferred. Though, based on my limited searching, it essentially just leaves the WRX if I want anything made within the last 5 years. If I were to pursue anything, I'm currently learning toward the A3 - similar to the GTI, but AWD. Nothing is set in stone ...

I know I've asked this before, but want to again, in case there are more on the radar or if others want to chime in.

We're live and have a showing scheduled already for this afternoon. Looks like I might not be home much this weekend, maybe I need to check out the public library that I haven't been to in the 4 years we've lived here. :derp: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2016-Thorntree-Ln-Lawrenceburg-KY-4034...

Car talk tré: Carpocalypse Now!

I mentioned this in OT, but figured I'd bring it here since it's more on topic to this thread. I'm thinking about replacing the GTI with an AWD car again. Though, my criteria is pretty limiting. Found this one: https://www.truecar.com/used-cars-for-sale/listing/WAUB8GFFXG1035801/2016-audi-a3/ If I w...

Both good insights, thanks guys. I was eyeing the Audi Q3 lately. I think the extra clearance would be nice, as Zilhuge mentioned. It'd give me a different feel with slightly more space than the GTI too. Q3 is a Tiguan in drag - and it's very old and doesn't have any more space than a GTI. Dates ba...

Although ambitious, my goals for this year: - Drop weigh back to 190-195 (jumped up to 205 due to injuries and holidays) - Squat: 405 (pre-knee injury, prob around 390 right now) ---> 475 - Bench: ??? (assume 275, had AC joint sprain during last time I tested during a program) ---> 355 - Deadlift: 5...

I've been to Oahu twice - once with my family, once with my wife's. Overall, a fantastic island, but I'd highly recommend not going with her family. Assuming you meant for my mom to go alone, that's why I was thinking of my sis and myself joining her only for the end before coming back. This is for...

Earlier, I got an email that my company is resuming the BMW auto discount program. So, needless to say, I've been browsing all the auto discount programs that are offered and have the new car (whether new or CPO) itch again. :plac: Hey now, don't go throwing that around so easily.

Some of you likely saw it on my IG but I worked on my poverty bench last night. The end of this mesocycle called for 5+ at 235 and I ended up getting 9! I'm fairly certain this is a rep PR for me, including pre-AC joint sprain (2ish years ago) numbers. I also plugged it into a 1RM calc and it came ...
