    I’ve achieved the Ron Burgundy body type. Basically perfected fitness. “Don’t act like you’re not impressed”. For anyone wanting to know how to achieve that. It’s simple. Enjoy your scotch. Drink milk only when the weather permits it. Never eat a whole burrito. Do cannonballs in the pool. Occasional gang fights with your friends. Most important thing. When a classy lady walks in the room. Lie about the amount of reps you just did. Rely on that super confidence because there’s no way she’s not impressed.

    I think you meant to say that he has NEVER been at a weightlifting gym. There's nothing wrong with dropping the bar after you finish the movement. When I'm done with squats and move on to deadlifts, it's just the fastest way to get the bar where I will need it in a few minutes.
