Last Action Hero

Training on the road with very little equipment, convincing sport coaches that lifting won’t ruin specificity, keeping your relationship on the rails…yeah, these are all topics discussed on this week’s episode. Will Tex get his whole torso waxed in front of a live studio audience? He hasn’t refused outright. Will we be able to get enough people together to sit in the same room as Tex while he’s paying the wax tax? Definitely not.

If you asked about movies or trucks, your questions were answered. If you had a legitimate inquiry about training? It’s a crap shoot. There’s a fifty-fifty chance you were passed over for a more self indulgent question like: “what kind of coffee drink do you guys like the most”. Jesus Christ.


Tex wanted me to be sure and thank Mazama Coffee, his favorite spot to sit and write performance prose. If you’re in the Dripping Springs area, check them out and order, whatever the fuck you want. That includes you Spanton. A very special thank you to everyone who donated, participated, spread the word, and JOINED THE FIGHT! Wade’s Army [@WadesArmy] is a Crew like no other. It’s a family united by strength, both in mindset and performance. When called upon to rally and bring awareness to pediatric cancers like neuroblastoma, you answered with sweat and 200k worth of research and treatment funds. YOU are The Crew

    “What kind of sick bitch takes the ice cube trays out of the freezer???”

    I’ve followed Field Strong for as long as I have (since Day One) because I have no friends.

    And because it works.

    But mostly because I have no friends.

    While I agree that Unforgiven is maybe the best western made, I was a little disappointed that there was no mention of Young Guns, at least in the top 5.
