I ate last night at a mongolian grill. If you haven't been, it is one of those places that has a make line set up like a buffet. You pick your meat, fill your bowl with whatever vegetables and seasonings you want and the cook it together like a stir fry. The grill is usually a large circle with several cooks and multiple orders.
These cooks are an impressive sight. They use @3 feet long sticks to handle the food. They move at a blurring speed, over many orders. One thing I noticed, to a man, they all had remarkable forearms. I spend a lot of time working grip, with multiple implements. These guys had more definition and detail than me.
This just got me thinking about a Waterbury article about frequency. He spoke about a figure skater’s legs or a mechanic’s forearms. It wasn’t the load that builds these up, but the frequent stimulation. Watching these guys was a firsthand observation. I don’t know if there is any lessons to be learned from this, but it is nice to see something you read about in motion.
