My workout with White Lightning tonight
EDIT: FOR THE SLIGHTLY LESS INTELLIGENT, WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ IS COMEDY. YOU KNOW, LIKE YOU SEE ON TV. FROM THIS POINT FORWARD IT IS ONE BIG FUCKING JOKE. PLEASE DO NOT FEEL THE NEED TO POST HOW BAD ASS YOU ARE AND HOW YOU WILL SCHOOL EVERYONE ON THIS BOARD. I CAN PROMISE YOU THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THIS FORUM THAT WILL SCHOOL YOU, UNLESS YOU ARE SCOTT LADE OR DENNIS CEIRI OR SOMEONE OF THAT CALIBER.
First off, let me say White Lightning is big. Big like Fat Bastard from Austin Powers. He defines the pear shape. The shape of a pear that was part of some nuclear experiment gone terribly wrong. He's a nice guy though, alot different impression than I got on the forums. Almost wimp like.
We warmed up with about 5 minutes of cardio. I got my heart rate up, body a little warm, ready to move some iron. As we were walking over to the leg press machine I could see him sweating his ass off. I was like WTF? it was 5 minutes on a recumbent bike!
Anyway, I got arthitis in my knees from years of running so I told him I like to warm up with 3 plates on each side, 25 reps. He was like, ya, no problem. I told him it was his home gym, go ahead and take the first reps. He got two or three out then stopped. Started complaining about his knee. I did my 25 and ask him if he wanted to take it up to 6 plates, where I start my first real set. He was like, "no, man, my knee is really bothering me." After 5 real sets, I like to take it back down to 2 on each side and just pop as many reps as I can, usually about 100. I asked him if he wanted to do a set, he said ok. He popped out 11 reps. Good for him.
So, we finished up with leg presses and moved onto leg extensions/curls. No big deal, except I'd load up with 160 on the machines, he was doing 50. Kept bitching about his knee.
At this point, I'm thinking I'm not going to get any kind of workout, so I ask him if he wants to just do a full body workout, since his knee is hurting. He start waffling on that as well and I'm like WTF? you invited me. So I tell him, whatever, I'm doing a full body, if he wants to tag along, fine.
I'll save all the pus details and only hit the highlights of the rest of the workout. I was at the gym for 90 minutes with this squid.
Bench Press - I warm up with 225. He couldn't get one rep out.
Military Press - I warm up with 135. I had to continually swap out 10lb plates with my 45lb plates so he could do 10 reps.
BB Curls - I warm up with 90 and go up to 150. He started with the preset 30lb barbell
Skull Crushers - I warm up with 90 and go up to 150. He started with an empty bar
Pullups - I do weighted pull ups. I didn't need to do them tonight, I just used body weight. My ass was tired inbetween sets hoisting his ass up the bar. He couldn't do one.
I asked him if he wanted to do my interval training on the treadmill. He said his wife was expecting him home and he had to leave.
In short, the man is all hat and no horse.
