PSA: Lockdown and You

April 8, 2020
131 upvotes

This is a public service announcement.

Odds are you're in the midst of a lockdown due to Covid-19.

  • You are not allowed to stop working out.

  • You are not allowed to stop tracking your food, fattie.

  • You are not allowed to stop showering.

  • You are not allowed to stop dressing appropriately, you lazy fucker.

  • You are not allowed to stop brushing your teeth.

  • You are not allowed to stop trimming your fingernails and toenails, and your nose hairs.

  • You are not allowed to stop shaving your balls.

  • You are not allowed to stop being the oak.

  • You are not allowed to lose all of the discipline you've gained.

  • You are not allowed to not have a damn plan for the pandemic, even now.

  • You are not allowed to stop preparing for the future.

  • You are not allowed to let the things you can't control control you.

  • You are not allowed to stop having fun and stop gaming your wife.

  • You are not allowed to stop fucking your wife because you're stressed.

What I'm saying is, you are not allowed to stop being attractive. You have to be attractive. Don't be unattractive. Even in a pandemic.

I got a few doctor friends. They are all saying that their patients are getting fat. Every. Single. Patient. And booze sales are up 55%. Gee, I wonder why.

"But... but... I'm stressed, Steel. I need some comfort food. I NEED that drink." Well boo fucking hoo, you weakass.

Just remember, the next time you reach for that cookie or beer or what have you, and think to yourself, man, I deserve this...

Yes, yes you do. You reap what you sow, after all. In fact, that's what got you into this mess, isn't it.

Now get back to work. Summer is right around the corner.

I'm reminded of u/thotwrecker and his quote

You don't get to do what successful people do

[–]whatdidshewrite1 point2 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

Perhaps I misunderstood? I don’t think successful people do any of the things OP listed

[–]RStonePTOfficial Counterfeit Goods9 points10 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

That wasn't the point of it. It was in reference to a guy who stopped smoking weed, and a ton of flack from guys who swear they earn 200k a year and can smoke weed fine. OP just needed to man up or something.

The point is that you can do all kinds of dumb shit once you're successful. Some people gifted towards non addictive personalities can easily smoke weed every day and throw a car out into space. But most guys can't. So, until you're the guy who can afford to do dumb shit, then you don't get to use 'just a little'.

In this case, the virus doesn't mean your MAP gets a pause

[–]red-sfpplustells 1000 lb club pussies to fuck off4 points5 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

This is truth.

I am pretty good in most areas. But I love my roids and stims. '

I have a very high addictive personality. The only reason it works for me is that my drugs are generally uppers, not downers, I use them to party, not for day to day.

But it is a fine fucking line.

[–]SBIIIMRP APPROVED Ballbuster8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

One day you think you have your cocaine and booze habits under control.

Next day, you wake up hungover in a bed you don't recognise, beside a naked & beautiful Cuban hooker who you don't remember seeing before in your life, your wallet 500 bucks lighter and despite those two factors indicating that you had a night of mind blowing sex, your balls are still inexplicably full.

Posting for a friend.

Literally!

[–]Vegasman20002Grinding0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Me with alcohol. Every once in awhile I find myself crossing that line. The problem for most people is not that they don't want to do things, they just lack discipline to do things

80% of ICU COVID-19 patiënts are obese and unattractive.

Amen brother.

[–]SkimTheDross22 points23 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

This is a time to step it up and lead.

This time is why you lifted.

This time is why you ate sharp and are in good health.

This time is why you have your finances straight.

Adjust. Adapt.

Get it done.

[–]WeightsNCheatDatesGrinding6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

100%. I’m more prepared for this corona virus and lockdown shit than the average man in each of the above categories now because of my efforts and MRP.

But I also know these events have cause me to double down and see where I can do better. I’m fucking thriving right now.

[–]SiegreicherMarsch3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Jack Donovan on modern society: "The average guy can now afford to be careless. Nothing he does really matters." So many men checked out long ago and are completely lost right now. They cannot observe, orient, decide, and act. Their wives are out hunting for food and toilet paper. Their wives are telling them how the family should be protected. Their diet and health will continue to deteriorate as they eat more junk and drink more beer, because they don't know anything about meal planning or macronutrients or counting calories. Their mental health will decline because they don't know why they are so depressed. Any real workouts will stop because reasons. Their hair will grow long and unkempt (or they will shave it off even though they don't want to) because they don't know anything about haircuts and they can't find clippers to buy. They are like baby birds that have fallen out of the nest.

[–]MrChad_ThundercockBig Red Machine6 points7 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Timely post.

Dead on. 100% TW from home. Listening to these fat slobs on conference calls at work complaining how they are gaining weight from sitting around all day eating like shit. Need to be reminded to exercise and how their wives are turning into bitches..

Pathetic.

I actually lost 5 lbs, working out twice as hard but low on my calorie intake.

I was about to do a post on the other sub about attraction levels right now. Lack of attraction killing beta husbands right now.

[–]johneyapocalypseTold Death to Fuck Off - MRP is easy mode / MOD5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

My wife and kids and I have two-hour workouts in our backyard every day:

  • Full gym.
  • Heavy bag.
  • Pad work.
  • Thai pad work.
  • Medicine ball.
  • Battle ropes.
  • Suicides.
  • Jump rump.
  • Trampoline jump rope.
  • Speed bag.
  • Pool.

And we have three video stations plus these killer video sunglasses. Kids love editing and posting their workouts online.

hashtag bad-asses.

p.s. Sun, coconuts, not a cloud in the sky.

p.p.s. We're gonna try to build a Tony Ferguson parkour/mma station.

Never too late to stop making a mistake.

[–]Stallion--Duck2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Shit I feel really convicted right now...

[–]Grayhawk8452 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Still having 1 beer a week. Still working out. Still going to work Still playing with the dog Still playing with the kids. Still being the Man I've always been. I ain't perfection, but goddammit I am making the most of this time to get closer to my idea of it.

Honestly I'm being more of a man and leader now, than when society is normal.

[–]vithus_inbau2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

The most exciting time to make bank in my life is right now. Right place, right time, the only game in town. Thanks to the lockdown we can't spend money on going out, fuel for car etc etc. Just food and internet. Work covers rent.
More customers coming in all the time wanting to do business, we have run out of space to store stock.

There is money in junk and recycling - heaps of it. Future looks awesome...

happy trails

[–]New_Age_Radical0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Congrats. What are you selling?

[–]maxfederle0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I too am curious about your business

[–]Techn1ckS4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

New squat, deadlift, bench, row and weighted chinup PR. Probably because I'm eating more, but I'll take it 👌. Time to get that OHP up too 🤟

[–]PersaeusMRP APPROVED4 points5 points  (8 children) | Copy Link

so far lockdown is pretty cool. summer shred going better than ever thanks to zero junk food exposure at work and way lower stress from working at home. already told boss "don't expect me to come back to work like before"

after an early bunker strategy mistake; have determined it's better for all if i completely ignore the wife all work day long.

so far, only real problem is i have not figured out how to really trim beard properly without barber. tried a couple things but can't seem to stay symmetric.

besides work from home; biggest upside is daily lifting with the boy (morphing into a man). just a little jelly at the way a 17 boy can just pile on muscle, totally natty. his goal is to be 185 pounds by college.

[–]SBIIIMRP APPROVED Ballbuster4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Freehand is the best way, I've found - I use a zero blade on the trimmer and trim back any stray hairs. I used to used a graded beard trimmer but for a few days after shaving, it always looked way too neat and evenly cut. Doing it freehand means I don't look like I'm in a boy band and leaves the beard looking fuller while still looking tidy.

[–]PersaeusMRP APPROVED0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

i'll give that a try

[–]WeightsNCheatDatesGrinding1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Also trim it at the end of the day, that way your trimming it as it lays naturally. Like the guy above said, just take your time and trim off a little at a time, working one side then the other then back again.

[–]HornsOfApathyMRP MODERATOR0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

just a little jelly at the way a 17 boy can just pile on muscle, totally natty

Yeah, me too. 15yo I taught to lift went from 150 to 185 in a year. All muscle. Insane gains.

[–]pacjax0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

impossible to gain 35lbs of muscle in a year naturally, its probably puberty too man

[–]HornsOfApathyMRP MODERATOR2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Doesn't matter. Got laid.

[–]pacjax0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

ok then lol

[–]zapfastnet4 points5 points  (8 children) | Copy Link

shaving our balls? What the actual Fuck?

[–]tspitsatgp23 points24 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Based on how long you’ve been lurking around on reddit I doubt you can even see your balls, so this doesn’t apply to you.

[–]zapfastnet9 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

oh, what a relief!

[–]part_wolfPotential Wild Card / Dreadful '203 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

My first thought. If God wanted me to look like I was twelve years old, he wouldn't have put hair on my potatoes.

Edit: trim your balls and use talc you faggots

[–]NYCSPARKLE1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yeah. You have to. Fuck those spaced-out, standing up, lighter colored hairs.

[–]SteelSharpensSteelMRP MODERATOR[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

[–]zapfastnet3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

"I used to shutter at the thought of shaving my balls"

LOL

[–]maxfederle0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

It ain't THAT difficult.... Geez

[–]justthetipbro221 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Thanks.

[–]ChrisEG1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

People seem to go one of two directions. They cave into bad habits and rationalize that it is due to stress and let themselves off the hook or they double down on discipline and make exercise and diet a priority and feed off the gains.

[–]Balls_Wellington_Wrong.1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I deserved that. Been slacking on dressing. Had a couple beers while working late.

Wrong on both counts.

[–]ProofArcher0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Sounds like a lot of effort bro.

I'll just be over here chilling - which reminds me, gotta take my afternoon nap.

Toodles.

[–]D32thStryk30 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

Okay sorry if I'm coming across as harsh but I've been thinking about marriage and this seems like okay... this is not fucking marriage even. It's just gaming someone.

Why would I ever want to do this continuously to someone? If someone is not as invested in the participation why wouldn't I just have sex with anybody? What you have written gives me the impression the other part (wife) is so devoid of emotion/commitment. I would understand why perhaps for kids... but any other reason?

[–]SteelSharpensSteelMRP MODERATOR[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

You are missing the point.

[–]D32thStryk30 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

I don't know what I'm missing. Could you tell me?

[–]SteelSharpensSteelMRP MODERATOR[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

This isn't about marriage and all. It is about you and your choices.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
