I’ll die never knowing what having a father is like... but it still couldn’t stop me from getting my #reps some shit just wasn’t meant to be.  Would have been nice to have a respectable warrior in the corner, just in case. Show me the ropes, just in case. The route around easy mistakes and the systemic nonsense that surrounds a young black male... shit, would have been cool if he just stuck around long enough to hand me #theautobiographyofmalcolmx if nothing else, #yaheardme ??? But that #pigiron never cared. Everyday I wake up, it’s right there. So many lessons, so much meditation, and yes, so many results. #bodybuilding #plyometrics #calisthenics #conditioning 🦍

When you talking about pumping iron it was born from.just.that .pumping iron, not pumping rubber or.composite , of course times have changed and weight is weight however there is something special about feeling cold iron in your hands and hearing the clanging of the weight , they used to call this #pigiron back in the day and if you haven't felt that then I'd suggest that you find a place to try it, @c.t.ali.fletcher and @craig.monson.52 know a lot about this as they were born from.using pig iron, I'll post other pics of old iron plates as I find them

Chill upper body session at the condo gym, the equipment is old school, but still did the deed. #PigIron Upper Body Deload. #BigBaussFitnessXNutrition 
PS: I wasn’t doing pause reps, I had to adjust my grip at the start and end of he set. The bar was too small, and I had to slowly rack it so I don’t jam my fingers 🤣🤣🤣

The greatest gift my father gave me was fitness. At an extremely young age I was taught perfect form before I was allowed to put weight on the bar. My dad built me thin wooden bumper plates to practice with to get the feel of pulling off the ground.  We trained religiously in our garage with shitty bars and under extreme heat and intense cold. This was my absolute favorite bar growing up and that’s on one of the wooden bumpers. Whether your a parent or a coach, teach beginners the right way and pass along the gift of fitness. #FathersDay #Fitness #Powerlifting #OlympicLifting #PigIron #GarageGym

"Pig iron". This stuff is a part of history in the fitness industry. These weights were tossed around for years and years back when body building was the main reason to train, that or elite level professional athletes.

If you have never picked these weights up and gave them a curl or overhead press or pull, then your missing out. Everything has a past. Everyone has a passion. This world, its creation, evolution and future are mine.

I didnt have a 100 lbs dumbbell or kettlebell so I grabbed these and made a 100lbs bell !! It was WAY harder to use for this, also amazing at how a 100lbs barbell is easy. Just a different apparatus, weight displacement, and setup changes everything. Workout : 6R w/60 sec rest....5 RMU, 15 BJO, 15 GSQ

Thanks to my consulting project at Vulcan Park & Museum, I found myself exploring with delight the Sloss Furnaces, which is a national historical landmark where pig iron was (and still is) being created...which helped contribute to the sudden outburst of the City's growth, earning its nickname as the Magic City. It was because of this overnight success that brought the cast-ironed Roman god of the forge, Vulcan, to sit atop of Red Mountain, overlooking the valley of Greater Birmingham. Vulcan, created with local iron, epitomizes the City as the capital of iron and steel-making industry.  Plus, I finally understood where and why the Iron Bowl was named for the Auburn-Alabama football rivalry.
.
.
.
Not only is Sloss entrenched deep in its profoundly productive pig-ironed history, it is also the perfect site for diverse types of events from Southern Makers, SlossFest, and the haunted SlossFright. The ever-dynamic use of Sloss buttresses the steely strength of Birmingham in its continued revitalization efforts, upholding its reputation and role as the Magic City...rising from the ashes of Depression and steadfastly becoming a reckoning force in the technology industry, to be the Deep South's Silicon Valley.

With all its rusted glory, Sloss is ridiculously perfect for soul-deep photography (I am looking at you, @rdanielwalkerphotography)

Therefore, @Sloss  is definitely one of my favorite places in the 'Ham. Friday, 14 June 2019
