I was at the gym tonight doing my squat reps when an old memory popped inexplicably into my head. I can’t place where I saw this quote but it was in the context of attraction advice for women on one of the more moderate game and red-pill relationship blogs one or two years ago. It went something like this:
“My recommendation for women today is to get on the squat rack and plump up that ass.”
I lol’d just recalling it. I believe the commenter in question was a man of color, and he was trying to say that either men of color would become prime catches in the next wave of the SMP, or that features typically seen as attractive to men of color would become more mainstream and attractive to white men.
I have to say that as a dude, squats are a great exercise aside from the risk to your knees. First, they work the biggest muscle combination in the body save for the technique-intensive power clean and so contribute greatly to your overall strength and tone. Secondly, I’ve been told big-muscle lifts boost your testosterone, but whether that’s true or not, I just have an enhanced feeling of “manliness” when finishing a cycle of squats. It usually lasts me about 24 hours, its effects including increased outcome independence, better executive function and sharpened libido. I also recall that after one pre-football summer hitting the squat rack hard, I stopped experiencing the overwhelming quadriceps soreness that I thought was the lot of every football player.
