While most of my writing is usually actionable training articles, I switched it up and wrote a fun humor piece for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s website that was published yesterday.

It’s a spin off Jeff Foxworthy’s You Might Be a Redneck, only with a weightlifter kick: You Know You’re a Meathead When.

It’s not meant to be taken too seriously, it’s just meant to give you some laughs. I bet if you’re a serious weightlifter that you can relate to a lot of it.

The article has over 8,000 Facebook likes in under a day, so it seems that people are really enjoying it, which makes me happy since that was the goal. I hope you enjoy it, too.

You can find it here:


What are your favorites? What can you relate to most? Let me know!

If you enjoy the article, please share it with your meathead friends and share the laughs.

    18. When you go to a new gym to inquire about joining, you don’t ask about the price but rather how heavy the dumbbells go and whether or not you can use chalk.
