Welcome to the Super Squats Club

Up to it, down to it, fuck bitches that don’t do it, we do it cause we use to it, now lift motherfucker, lift. In lifting as in drinking, mantras help.  Now chug that wheatgrass shot like a real woman and lift wit yo legs, gurl.

I’m assuming you’re now drunk on anti-oxidants?  Which doesn’t mesh with the pain in your thighs and have got you feeling ornery?  Good, I’ll get some honest dirt out of you!

Welcome to the Super Squats Club.  Your weekly corner to track your (non) workouts, bitch about Becky from Boot Camp, and share the latest (safe) dieting dirt with the snarkiest fools around. Might as well enjoy workout hell.  The latest Harvard Business Weekly reports that 70% of winning the interwebz is looking good. We’re on a mission critical assignment here.

One rule to remember, people get sensitive bout their fitness –ish so be nice!  It’s like discussing my momma…I may call her Sloppy Cunt but it’s Ms. Jackson to you.

You in?  And with that, we’re off.  I may bring friends next week if you’re good!
