whitticus:… i need more buff ishimaru Me: You should be careful what you wish for. whitticus: i need more buff ishimaru but not from you Me:It’s too late, you already said it. Me: Your wish went out into the ether, and I heard it.
My regular workout partner ditched me for like a week, so I had to do bench press day without him. I asked a 40-something dad looking guy to spot me. I hate asking other people to spot me. Everything feels awkward. Sometimes the spotter is way too proactive. This guy knew what he was doing, though.
It was my heavy day, so I was benching 295. I did it three times; I almost got the 4th rep. After we racked it back up, he turned to me and said, “You had a lot of power coming up off of your chest. That was really good. Are you a powerlifter?”
For about half a second, I knew what it meant to be a man. And then I came crashing back down to earth and had to confess to him that I wasn’t a powerlifter.
