I was reading Foucault’s Discipline and Punish during the spring of ’04. I needed a job a before I knew it, I was a prison guard at a Swedish top security prison. The Lord moves in mysterious ways, as Belize would say.

The prison gym was a pretty dodgy gym with basic stuff. And they inmates who worked out was all about tribal tattoos and getting big. Big muscles = alpha male, even if your crime was more Jönssonligan then Ocean’s Eleven. I did not think about that gym until a guy that I work with introduced me to the book Convict Conditioning 2 – Advanced Prison Training Tactics for Muscle Gain, Fat Loss and Bulletproof Abs. I want it. I want. I want it.
