‘Iranian Hulk’ Punches Concrete Walls And Rips Melons Apart For Martyn Ford Fight Prep

Published

Sajad Gharibi, a boxer known as the ‘Iranian Hulk,’ has posted videos of his bizarre and intense training regimen as he prepares for his upcoming fight with Martyn Ford. The pair are set to meet in the ring in London on April 2 in a fight that’s being described as a battle between “the world’s scariest men.”

Gharibi does some pretty crazy stuff in the name of training. The Iranian Hulk took to Instagram last week to post a four-minute-long video in which he shares a bunch of his strength training methods. This included punching concrete walls, bending metal tires, and ripping melons apart with his bare hands.

It’s pretty clear the Iranian Hulk is very strong. “YES THIS IS PERSONAL… Iranian Hulk never stops,” he wrote in the description of the video. “See you April 2nd @martynfordofficial.” In order to be ready, he has to make sure he’s as strong as possible.

Martyn Ford, however, thinks it’s all a ruse. He’s poking fun at Gharibi’s insane training measures and thinks they’re completely unnecessary not to mention pointless. “While he’s bending spanners, punching walls, cutting bones and chewing crayons … I will put myself through the most vigorous fight camp EVER … I will PROVE to a lot of people what I’m about that night,” Ford said.

I guess the proof is in the pudding. We’ll all just have to watch the fight on April 2 to see who wins. I’m not sure who to put my money on. I guess time will tell!

What A Committed Relationship Really Looks Like

Published

Everyone has an idealized image in their head of what the perfect relationship looks like. Maybe it’s a noughties rom-com or a scene from Star Wars — whatever it is, we all have that gold standard. As a result of Hollywood magic, however, these images are often hyper-sexualized and lacking in genuine intimacy. We all want love, but we’re missing out on what the true crux of a healthy committed relationship is. Read on to find out more…

Honesty is key.

So many times in relationships I’ve reflected on old exes and realized that I wasn’t really comfortable enough to speak my mind or assert boundaries. As it is, when you have it, you finally realize all that you’ve been missing out on. Having a person you can spill your soul to without fear of judgment or disgust is magical. You get it to a large degree with friends, but having people look you in the eye and see all of you and want to plan their lives around you is truly a fabulous feeling. As such, you can breathe easy around them and avoid secrets.

You communicate your insecurities.
iStock 948030730
Rather than internalizing the issues you face in your life, you share them together in a committed relationship. Because you’re a pair, you share these experiences rather than struggling alone. You don’t feel like you’re burdening your partner either because they do the same in return. It’s all very egalitarian. That’s the secret, really — there should never be inequality in relationships. It cultures resentment and negativity.

Boundaries are in place.
iStock 000059737026 Small
You’ve been together with your partner for so long now that you don’t have to worry about speaking your truth. Even if things that you had previously discussed change over time, you have no qualms about discussing it in a committed relationship. This means that you can both grow and develop as individuals without putting your emotional life on hold for another person. If you want to take up some hobbies alone or have tea with a friend for some added enrichment, it’s no problem.

You’re open to experimentation.
iStock 861368744
Don’t mistake being together and committed for having a dull life. If anything, I find that sex, much like wine, improves over time. This accounts for our increased experience as we get older, but also our understanding of what the other person likes. You are more likely to take risks when you feel comfortable because the benefits outweigh the potential negatives. You feel safe, therefore there aren’t risks in a committed relationship. If there are, you can communicate them as and when they arise. When you’re with the right person, this dating lark is suddenly quite fun.

You can still have time apart.
iStock 521088282
You might not be obsessed with each other in the same way that you were in the early stages, but you can value time apart too. For some people who are consumed by relationships, they stop appreciating time where they aren’t together. This can risk friendships declining and people isolating themselves. This means that truly committed couples have established this life balance and can remain well-rounded individuals. It comes with trust.

You take trips together.
iStock 866986148
These adventures don’t have to break the bank, but they are a way of having leisure time and treating yourselves. It’s often fun to see how other people vacation and pick up fun new habits and tactics to maximize your enjoyment. Plus, who doesn’t love great weather and cocktails? If your guy hasn’t booked your first mini-break together then he’s not planning to commit any time soon.

Everything feels easier.
iStock 857851502
This is self-explanatory. All the songs start to make sense. You feel at peace with yourself and you’re able to develop yourself too. There is space for all of your interests and you aren’t trading off important aspects of your life to be with someone.

You’re excited for the future.
iStock 956368738
Maybe you’ve started to doodle your initials together like in middle school, but what’s wrong with that? Embrace your love and commitment. Don’t shy away from big feelings.

You are your best self.
iStock 941109112
When the right person is committed to you, everything feels warm and fluffy. You love them, but you also love how much they love you. At the moment, it’s a perfect situation. Who can say what the future will hold, but you’re excited.

Maybe it’s time to reassess your conception of what a healthy and committed relationship looks like. You can’t force feelings, but there are ways to get better at committing to people, and encouraging them to commit to you, in return. There’s a lot more to it than boom boxes and running through the airport with flashcards…

Signs You’re Already Sexy: Qualities That Make You Hot As Hell

Published

on

iStock 1181598880

Many women just about kill themselves trying to be sexy, but the irony is that they’re probably already hot. While physical attractiveness does play a part in how attractive we’re deemed by other people, the truth is that non-physical traits also count for a lot. Keep reading to find out the signs that you’re sexy as hell and don’t even realize it.

Knowing that you’re sexy

You’ve heard it a million times before, but confidence is still the sexiest quality a person can have. If you know you’re hot, then it exudes through everything you do. You’ll naturally carry yourself differently, talk differently, and just appear more confident overall. Even though One Direction sang about how attractive it was for a girl to not know she was beautiful, knowing you’re beautiful is definitely better.  That’s not to say that you should be arrogant. Confidence isn’t about thinking you’re better than everyone else. It’s just about knowing that you’re enough.

Independence

 Dating gurus put a lot of weight on men needing to feel needed. While there may be some truth to this hero complex, being independent makes you hot. Taking care of yourself and being self-sufficient is an attractive quality in anyone, no matter who you are. By contrast, expecting someone else to take care of you can make you come across as needy, annoying, and hard work.

Vulnerability
iStock 982717854
 While independence is a hot quality, so is vulnerability. And the good news is you can be both. You can be vulnerable while still taking care of yourself. Being vulnerable is about releasing the need to be perfect and opening up. It’s about taking risks and knowing that you might get hurt, but taking a chance anyway. That vulnerability is more endearing than perfection because perfection isn’t real. But vulnerability is something that everyone can relate to.

Compassion.
iStock 614033614
Compassion and kindness make you sexier than you’d think. The truth is that most of us are attracted to humans that are actually decent. The novelty of the bad guy or girl wears off very quickly once you actually have to do life with that person. Being kind and having integrity will make you shine, especially because a lot of people aren’t great at being kind.

Selflessness
iStock 589451246
 Along with being kind and compassionate, being selfless is an attractive quality. Thinking of others before yourself is sexy, although people don’t often mention it. Why? The opposite, being selfish, is so unattractive. Not that you have to be a martyr and forget about your own needs. But being selfless involves considering how others feel and taking that into account before making decisions. People who are selfless are typically more pleasant to be around.

Individuality
iStock 914883016
 Many people are afraid to be their true selves. Instead, they try to force themselves to fit a pre-designed mould—one that society deems acceptable. So when someone comes along who is unapologetically individual, it’s rare and refreshing. And sexy. Individuality is about confidence, too. It takes a lot of confidence and self-love to let your true self shine. Especially if it doesn’t fit into what’s considered “cool”.

Ambition
iStock 939721900
 Most people would agree that ambition is hot at heck. Having a goal and pursuing it diligently tends to be much more appealing than just doing what life tells you to do. It often shows determination, motivation, capability, and open-mindedness. There will be some people who are put off by ambitious women. But you have to ask yourself whether they’re really your kind of people.

Courage
iStock 682924070
 According to Glamour, one of the sexiest traits that few people talk about is courage. Remember that courage isn’t the absence of fear. It’s being afraid and pushing on anyway. Again, courage is relatively rare. So when someone is brave, it’s special. We’re more likely to root for courageous characters in TV and books. And we’re also more likely to be attracted to courage over cowardice.

Intelligence
iStock 865813094
Some women feel that they have to dumb themselves down to be attractive to men. There are undoubtedly men out there who can’t handle women who are smarter than them. But, again, this probably isn’t the kind of guy you want to attract anyway. Actually, intelligence is a quality that makes someone more attractive. Research has shown that people would rather be with someone who is as smart if not smarter than themselves, rather than being with someone of a lower intellect.

How To Keep A Text Conversation Going With A Guy & Keep Him Hooked

Published

on

iStock 1182784510

Texting is one of the best ways that you can pique the interest of a potential partner. Of course, that can be easier said than done. Keep in mind that men don’t always like texting as much as women do. That means keeping the conversation going and keeping their interest can be a challenge at times. Here are a few tips for keeping the chat alive until you can actually meet up in person.

Let him join the conversation.

I know that not all guys love texting, but that doesn’t mean you have to dominate the conversation. Try to get him engaged and make him carry a bit of that weight sometimes. If he doesn’t, perhaps he’s not all that interested in the first place. If it’s too one-sided, he could start to lose interest, even if you think he likes you. Try asking him questions to get him talking about himself and he’ll start to enjoy the text convo a lot more.

Ask flirty questions.

Ideally, you’ll ask him open-ended questions to help keep the conversation going, but you should try to add some personality and some flirtatiousness to your questions too. That can help to spice up some of the more mundane questions and conversation topics to make things more enjoyable from his perspective. If you can show that you can be fun and flirty via text, he’ll be more interested in wanting to talk to you.

Know when to stop.
iStock 882341416
Your instincts might say that you should always try to keep the conversation going, but part of keeping a guy’s interest is knowing when to stop. It doesn’t always help to force things. Even if it’s a fun convo, put it on pause as soon as it starts to lose momentum. Just tell him that you have to go and that you’ll pick things up later. This will help to keep him intrigued and make him look forward to texting with you again.

Proofread every text.
iStock 803188510
For most guys, poor grammar in texts isn’t going to be a dealbreaker. However, you should still proofread every text before hitting send. If nothing else, make sure that your text makes sense. If he’s confused when reading it, he may not know how to respond, and that’ll be the end of the conversation. If one word is wrong, that’s fine, but if it gets too sloppy, he won’t know what you’re trying to say. This gives him the option of giving up on the convo, which isn’t what you want. Don’t let that happen because of a small oversight.

Send only positive messages.
iStock 816769370
If you’re only texting with a guy, there’s a good chance that he’s not your boyfriend. That means you shouldn’t be venting or dumping your problems on him unless he says it’s okay. If he doesn’t know you that well, he probably doesn’t want to hear you complain. That could also give him the wrong impression of you. Instead, keep things light and positive and try to talk about things that will keep him interested rather than making him feel bad because you’re had a rough day.

Focus on him.
iStock 88777211 SMALL
Let’s face it, most people prefer to talk about themselves, including guys. If you want a guy to enjoy your text convo and keep it going, let him do just that. Get him to talk about himself and the things that interest him. Of course, it also helps if you’re interested in those things as well. Guys like knowing that you’re curious about them. This will make them want to share more and keep the convo going. Plus, you should be using texting as a way to get to know him better anyway.

Take your time.
iStock 805089402
I assure you that guys are not overanalyzing how long it takes you to reply to each text. I’ve heard that some women do this, but I promise not many guys do the same unless they’re super insecure. You don’t have to go out of the way to text back right away to keep the conversation going. I mean, just don’t take three days to reply. Plus, you don’t want to seem too available and get in the habit of always texting back right away. In fact, taking your time will let him anticipate and look forward to your response, keeping him hooked.

Get creative.
iStock 539967986
If you want to keep a guy hooked, you have to think outside the box. Most guys get tired of having the same old text conversation they’ve had with countless girls before. You have to do something different. Find questions that are unique (without being too weird) that he hasn’t been asked before. It’ll keep the convo interesting and keep him texting back. This will show him that you have a fun personality. It’ll also show him that you’re different than anyone he’s met before, which can’t hurt either.
