Danial Hooper Death to Dadbod, No Filter Fitness

I Googled, “Origin of third time’s a charm.” I needed to find the name of my enemy. Has this ever been true? Has anyone in the history of history ever ever everrrrrr found good fortune on the third attempt? I searched that too. Google’s answer, “Nah, bro.” This workout is fun. So fun that I did it three times in the last two weeks. Apparently, Pistols are my new favorite stimulus. I’m like Yosemite Sam pow-powing in the air like …

I’ve joked several times on Death to Dadbod about quitting during a workout. I say it’s a joke because I’m being …

This isn’t me being the “dad who babysits.” But she’s really going out on a limb to …
