PopEye, WannaBe's And Tough Chicks...

I once was a tomboy.
I could do anything they did.
And I could do it better.
Well I couldn't pee standin' up...but that didn't keep me from tryin'!
I was a ToughChick!!

I grew outta bein' a tomboy.

We all know the guys at the gym ....the WeightLifters. They have a swagger about them. A certain walk...sorta bow-legged with their arms out at their sides... becuz they can't touch their elbows to their waists...or a least it looks that way.
There's only one in my gym.
He's a real flirt.
He's so bow-legged you could drive a MacTruck thru them!!
He's a regular PopEye!!

And then there's the WannaBeeWeightLifters.
They are a lot softer but still have a walk.

Today 2 WannaBeeWeighterLifters came in to workout....one on each side of me.
#1 said, "Do 10 on that machine and I'll do 10 here and then we'll switch."
I didn't look at #2. I just assume he nodded becuz that's what they did.
I did notice that neither changed the actual weight....both did 60 pounds on each machine.
You'd thought they were liftin' 260!!
All that huffin' and puffin' and RESTIN'!!!
While I ripped out 2 reps of 10!! with a 5 count rest in the middle!!!
And then moved to a leg machine and ripped out 3 reps of 15 while the SoftBoys did all that huffin' and puffin' and RESTIN'!!!

And then I stretched.
And then I went to the Captain's Chair and did 10 pull ups....while they finished their 3 REPS!! on 2 machines!!!

Let me simplify....I did 3 machines and 5 reps and stretched....and rested.
They did 2 machines and 3 reps on each machine....60 freakin' pounds.

And then they left...walkin' out with their arms held out from their bodies like PopEye!!!
While I'm doin' my 2nd rep on the Captain's Chair....gigglin' to myself.

I know it doesn't make sense you had to be there......but kicker to all this is...I just did those same machines that they huffed and Puffed and rested on....at 60 pounds.

I did 60 pounds!!!
They Didn't Change The Weights.
I did it.
No huffin'.
No puffin'.
Yeah Ima ToughChick!
And I don't walk around like PopEye!!

I'm pretty sure Hubby's arm don't touch his waist, but I don't think he's bow-legged either. He's more hte power-lifting type than the body-building type. I say that's where Charlie gets his strength cause I sure don't have any!

From the same cloth? I don't think you would ever know it from reading our blogs. Maybe if I had someone like Roy it would bring the best out in me!

Thanks for your comment.
