Now Playing Tracks


If you need motivation Brandon Lilly just Squatted 400lbs.

Brandon blew out both of his knees 5 months ago on a 750 attempt and was told he may never walk right or even squat again. 

Brandon since then has Deadlifted 700+ a handful of times and is now squatting near 400. He needs to work on his depth he says, but he is moving that weight again. 

So you all keep up your great work and keep pushing forward with your goals. 

Hope you all had a good day. 


Today is #throwbackthursday

The conk (derived from congolene, a hair straightener gel made from lye) was a hairstyle popular among African-American men from the 1920s to the 1960s. This hairstyle called for a man with naturally “kinky” hair to have it chemically straightened using a relaxer (sometimes the pure corrosive chemical lye), so that the newly straightened hair could be styled in specific ways.

Often, the relaxer was made at home, by mixing lye, eggs, and potatoes, the applier having to wear gloves and the receiver’s head having to be rinsed thoroughly after application to avoid chemical burns. Conks were often styled as large pompadours although other men chose to simply slick their straightened hair back, allowing it to lie flat on their heads.

Many of the popular musicians of the early to mid 20th century, including Chuck Berry, Louis Jordan, Little Richard, James Brown, and the members of The Temptations and The Miracles, were well known for sporting the conk hairstyle.
