Return On Investment

Apr 26, 2017

Return On Investment As my thirty-fifth birthday quickly approaches I have been thinking about past birthdays and what it felt like to want to be a grown up as a kid. It’s weird, but when I was a kid I thought being an adult was going to be the most amazing thing ever. I’d be able to stay up late, eat cookies whenever I wanted to, play video games at the drop...

A Brief Moment of Zen

A Brief Moment of Zen

Feb 12, 2017

A Brief Moment of Zen   By Josh Hunt   When I was younger I had a terrible problem of living in my own head. Thoughts would come to me and I would be caught in a maelstrom of possibilities, questions, inadequacies, near-revelations, and various other concepts that bounce around a person’s head. I can remember being as young as a first grader balancing...

Tip Your Bartender By Josh Hunt The tiredest I have ever been after a powerlifting meet has not been after competing, it has not been after traveling, hell it has not been after traveling and competing, it was after spotting and loading. Seriously, the meets I have helped spot and load have been the most physically demanding weight lifting events I have ever...

Small Incremental Changes

Small Incremental Changes   By Josh Hunt   Last month I did something that I had never done before and that is take a legit vacation. Now I’ve traveled and taken time off from work, but in my thirty-four years on this earth I have really never taken time and gone somewhere just to…well relax. This was a new experience for me, I am not used to doing...

The Two-Headed Monster

The Two-Headed Monster

Oct 7, 2016

The Two-Headed Monster By Josh Hunt Years ago when I was busy writing terrible poetry and contrived short stories I came up with an idea that I still like today. This idea is that the day and night is a two-headed monster eating away at our lives and we must face this monster constantly. It is a battle that will end only when we pass on. I think about this...

Recovery

Recovery By Josh Hunt A few days ago I was sitting in my 1970’s bright orange arm chair, in my office (formerly Nerdatorium) reading a comic book, Nighthawk #1 to be precise. In this comic Raymond Kane (a.k.a. Nighthawk) is having a conversation with Tilda Johnson his support/tech/genius/female counterpart and she makes a comment that ‘even Frank Castle (the...

Paid?

Paid?

Aug 12, 2016

Paid? By Josh Hunt Growing up I never really watched professional sports. Frankly I was uninterested. The concept of watching people who got paid to play a game was lost on me. At the time I would think to myself why would anyone watch a sport when they can go outside and play it themselves? I thought about this idea a great deal. It made more sense to me to...

Expanding 2XL Powerlifting and IronAuthority

Aug 10, 2016

It was 2 years ago that we officially opened 2XL Powerlifting LLC in Lombard, Illinois.  It was a great venture – and a little stressful.  The main concept was to simply have a place to train and we landed a great space in one of the largest malls in the Chicagoland area. http://ironauthority.com/building-a-gym-and-competing/ for the article from when we...

Penance

Penance

Penance By Josh Hunt Remember the old school cartoons, where a bulldog in a bowler hat would punch a cat, and you’d see the cat fly through the air as its soul come out of its body? That is the best way I can describe how I am feeling right now. I am miserable. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I can think about is how long I have until I get to go...

An Update on Life, the Gym and Everything

Jun 16, 2016

IronAuthority has risen from the electronic ashes almost exactly one year after we all got a little busy.  But that doesn’t mean that all of your favorite authors have disappeared – we’ve all been continuing on with life and training…. and remembering our towels, as we hitchhike through life. 2XL Powerlifting LLC has been doing extremely...
