No, no, no.
I haven't taken to wandering around the boardwalk in flowery pants and a tank top and making gestures at the passers-by.
I am referring to a certain product called Jersey Pump.
Jersey Pump is a protein supplement designed to "fuel the gladiator in you" whatever that means.
But I have never actually tried drinking Jersey Pump. So I can't really comment on whether it will "increase your stamina and build lean muscle mass."
No, no, no.
I am here to praise the creativity of the motivational messages crafted by the person who is posting to Twitter with the handle @JerseyPump.
It appears to be the corporate twitter feed for the folks who sell the stuff in the orange bottles but there is very little direct pushing of the product. To be honest there is some macho weightlifters' trash talk. At least I think that's what it is. I don't circulate in trashtalking macho weightlifter circles very much these days. Tweets like these….
To be honest the main reason I wear tank tops is to avoid a concealed weapons charge
I've got 99 problems and idiots curling on the squat rack is one of them
Gloves to lift weights? Don't you mean bitch mittens?
I'm too big? Not possible! You're too small.
I eat dumbbells for breakfast
More Plates=More Dates
I don't even know what most of those mean.
But along with those are some real inspirational messages that I actually find useful in pushing me to stop reading twitter feeds from protein supplement marketeers, walk away from the computer, and actually go for a run or work out on the hiking bench or even… yes even lift some weights.
If you keep saying tomorrow, you will run out of time.
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
I will do what you won't today, so I can do what you can't tomorrow.
Of course it's hard. It's supposed to be hard. If it were easy, everybody would be doing it.
If you want something you've never had, then you've got to do something you've never done.
Your body is the baggage you carry through life. The more excess baggage the shorter the trip.
Thanks to @JerseyPump I am determined to be fitter at the start of this year's Laser sailing season than I have ever been before.
This year will be different.
As long as I don't put my back out again while weeding or sitting at my desk.
