Bro Science Life

Dom Mazzetti is reportedly a former fitness trainer turned comedian.  His online video series "Bro Science Life" is a sensation at YouTube. 

As I've dedicated most of my year at the gym getting into shape, I've found Dom's videos to be a freaking riot and occasionally on-the-mark.  For some hard-hitting, knuckleheaded satire, check out "10 Machines You Didn't Know Were Bicep Machines" and subscribe if you're so inclined. 

Also recommended are "How to Skip Leg Day," "What Your Gym Gear Says About You," "How to Get Your Girlfriend to Start Lifting," "Locker Room Etiquette," "People You Hate at the Gym," "Rookie Mistakes in the Gym," "Do You Even Lift?" and "What is Crossfit?"

As Slappy Squirrel would say, now that's comedy.
