The bench stats have to be off, don’t they? My bench sucks, but the figures quoted are truly pathetic.
I have seen more and more new trainers who can only lift the bar…and these are guys. When I was in highschool, only doing the bar labeled you a “pussy”. I would expect most girls to be able to use that much and more. I truly don’t even think some of these guys are that weak, they simply don’t push themselves at all. It is a mentality I just don’t understand. I thought it was natural for most guys to at least get into doing push ups at home on a regular basis just so they aren’t complete wimps. It seems like the attitude lately is it is just fine being wimpy and there is something wrong with the guy who wants to be stronger than that.
Hahaha. Prof, you are behind the times my man. The average guy is pathetic in all of this, and I think that few people that doesn’t work out semi-regularly do any pushups. We would think like this, but I think that the average guy can do lower than what they think, except maybe in the 20-29 age grouping.
Around my college, the skinny-Armani shirt- hat- sideways-and-tilted-to-the Southeast-fag look is apparently something to be proud of.
