The twins were the cool kids, the cute kids, the boyband lead singers. They had v-shaped bodies and wore tight shirts. They dressed the same every single day. They were dancers, actors, movie directors, parkour artists, and models. They were each other’s stunt double.
On my last day in Tehran they invited me to join them to a dance production of the story of Cyrus the Great. It was a rubbish performance in an impressive theatre. The stage moved in three directions. The building was a perfect circle. It was an honour for an artist to perform there and expectations were high when one of Iran’s best-known choreographers held a show there. Instead, Ali apologised profusely for taking me to what he compared to a high school arts project. He assured me that theatre in Tehran was usually a lot better.
It was still a remarkable experience, if only to see the twins live up to their promise that girls loved the look-a-like act they lived. Once the show was over, they took me backstage. I greeted everyone with an awkward, ‘Salam’, while men and women of all ages embraced the twins as if they had just been rescued from a coal mine. It was the first time I saw unmarried men and women hug each other. Normally they greeted with a soft handshake and even then, only if the woman offered her hand. If women were more conservative then no contact was made at all while men hugged freely and often gave each other three kisses on the cheek.
Context is everything-What might be a starting point for some could also be a big goal for others.
🔹My friend and client @itssobiggs has been working his butt off the past few months on improving his shoulder flexion. I wish I had a before and after of how his shoulder moves, but suffice it to say that he had no business doing any overhead pressing at the beginning of 2018. If you can’t do a movement properly unloaded, what would you expect to happen when you load it?
🔹Yesterday was the first day I’ve allowed him to press overhead since we started-and it’s because he earned it. In the words of Biggs, “I’ve been doing CARs every damn day for the last 6 months, no sh*t.” His posture and shoulders have improved dramatically and he has significantly improved ROM and the ability to use it; this allows him to press safely overhead in the gym, and also gives his joint more freedom to solve any movement problems that life might throw at him on a daily basis. You gotta earn your freedom. Nice job Biggs!

It’s hard to fathom for most people, but music was always my first love. My saxophone became my girlfriend about a year before I started cheating on her with my skateboard. Needless to say, the love triangle grew out of hand because now it is completely all aspects of my life💯🌹
@millez313 featured me on 3 of his Tracks for his graduating performance at @fullsail. It was an honor and a privilege to be able to showcase my talents with one of my best friends, who is the next up-and-coming talent. I’m so thankful and fortunate for such an opportunity. Even in the performances of my past, I never had any as extravagant as this one. I’m very glad that I was able to watch my man’s grow into such a beast. There is more music from us on the Horizon, so Watch out world‼️My man’s is on a mission! As for me, the mission continues. There will be more videos and pictures soon to come‼️ This party is just getting started👌🏽‼️
