The box that the bars are shipped in should display a SrJoker stamp of approval. That would make them completely legit.

There is a thing called 100# plates. You could purchase those if you feel that your testes have dropped enough to use them.



Or I could just swing by and borrow some of yours for awhile.



I do have 4. Plus, this really cool bar that will hold 1500 pounds, it is called a power bar. If you stop by we could arrange a deadlift session.

I actually don't care about the awards and stuff Indigo uses get as much as the attention. There was a day when guys like CT participated in the forums. Now that is the exclusive territory of the Live Spills geared specifically for Indigo peeps.

I tried. I PMed you awhile back when I was in Missoula (I think you're there now, right?) and never heard back from you.

Since the bar is probably high quality, I'm guessing it won't be cheap, but free shipping on something that heavy sounds good.

An Arab Sheik was admitted to the hospital for heart surgery, but
prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his blood in case the need arises.

As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally. Finally a Scot was located who had a similar blood type.

The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab.

After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman as appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, diamonds & US dollars.

A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate his blood again.


After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a thankyou card & a jar
of candies.

The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab this time did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated.

He phoned the Arab & asked
him: "I thought you would be generous again, that you would give me a BMW, diamonds &money... But you only gave me a thank-you card & a jar of candies."

To this the Arab replied: "Aye, but I now have Scottish blood in me veins."


What did the Scottish guy say at the football game?









"Get that quarterback!!"

Well good golly, Miss Molly, I knew you used to be in Ronan but thought you'd moved to Msla. Am through Ronan a bunch every year. Will stop and steal your hundred pounders ASAP.

And a big ol' +1 for this.....


I have spent many thousands of dollars (not complaining, all top quality stuff) on Biotest supps but since I elected not to jump on the Indigo bandwagon, and forgo the inevitable migraine caused by trying to follow the LiveSpills....CT be gone from the rest of the site.

The trap bar you see in the videos was an early custom prototype. This pic shows the newest one: The Dead-Squat Bar.

And yes, TNation will likely be selling this sometime this year.


How about putting some real weight on there....

I did the Indigo-3G and never received any freebies. It seems its only those who spend hours and hours on the livespills that get freebies. Just dont have time for that. Though I do follow the spills and enjoy them after work. Just no time to put in during the day and post. That seems to be the key. It is the same handful of individuals who get stuff anyway. Gotta be in the clique I guess. I will give credit to many of those people as they have shown great results since Indigo-3G was released. Oh well, wont stop me from ordering and promoting Biotest products. The quality speaks for itself.

I honestly don't know how some people have the time to participate in the livespills as much as they do. I skim them just for new ideas and info. It almost seems as the novelty of the daily spills is being milked, but hey gotta roll with it.

Too much group think in the live spill. Only one way to do things. Its not really a discussion at all. Its more like statments of what has to be done.

Bar looks sweet. Maybe i can save up enough through Bday and xmas gifts to add it to my home gym collection. I love trap bar deads to save on my screwed up lower back.

13 Prowlers have been given away so far this year and free Brain Candy 4-packs are sent out regularly as well. And dozens received Anaconda and MAG-10 to try out before it was sold at the store. Two free Boot Camps were given, where we paid for hotel, flights, and a $2000 dinner for participants. That's just scratching the surface.


Uh, apparently I have been hanging out in the wrong parts of the site...when were all these giveaways? The two camps were for Indigo, I know, but when were the Prowlers given away? Is there someplace we are supposed to be watching for these announcements?

The Prowlers were given away to the Indigo folks who went to the Bootcamps and a few others got one too. The other stuff is reward/opportunity for participating in the Indigo Project

There is a UK based Distributor now, so no excuses, pretty easy to find on the net :-)
