“Don’t forget about the boys!”

December 14th, 2012  |  Published in Stumpblog  |  5 Comments

I’ve been getting some great emails from dudes lately. It seems that the Gospel of Stumptuous is spreading far and wide, and the manpeople are also finding it useful.

Check out Izaac’s transformation on the reader mail page. He reminded me that guys deal with a lot of body-image bullshit and bad fitness advice too. And he¬†adds:

People are motivated, and often times desperate to make changes in their lives and end their suffering, so they put all this power into the hands of one person or product which becomes their only hope, and when it fails, hopelessness sets in and it becomes a vicious cycle. ¬†Because sooner or later they start chasing some other fad bullshit person who’s trying to sell them something.

Many of these people start to take action and matters into their own hands only after being severely disappointed time and time again, and I think it’s people like you and a handful of others out there who make a huge difference for so many motivated people who have reached a breaking point.

A 56-year old male Master’s track and field athlete who is rehabbing an injury using some of my tips said: “Thanks so much for encouraging us old farts, male or female.”

And finally, I’m hearing from lots of male trainers who are also using Fuck Calories with their clients.

Way to go guys! Spread the good word! And you are all welcome in the House that Stumptuous Built.

    Yup, from another manfolk. That said, we men can take whatever you write, even if directed at women, and adjust it to ourselves, if need be. :)

    Your stumpuousness has reached a small island a little left of England, a little right of Ireland.

    Jamie, Isle of Man.

    I started wearing a dress just to continue reading the info on here but then i began to realise that maybe, just maybe, all this workout stuff doesnt have to be practised differently by man or woman. They can do the same excercises!
    Which is a real shame as the dress felt nice against my skin.
