A couple years ago I used to train with another guy who was about my age (Pop Pop Bob) as well as a couple of younger guys. Every once in a while the younger guys wouldn’t make it in and I would tell Bob, “Since the youngin’s aren’t here why don’t we just take it easy today and take a gentleman’s day.” Bob would always be all for it and then I would take that opportunity to hammer his old ass even harder than usual just to be a ball buster! He would fall for it every time too! Hey, I have to amuse myself somehow.
Bob’s gone now but I have a few other training partners, today as a test I texted my partner Cory and said, “What do you say, gentleman’s day today?” and he texted back “yeah sure, sounds good to me”. That is when I hit him up with a text that would have made Willie Wonka proud, “YOU JUST FAILED THE TEST DUMBBASS! THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS GENTLEMAN’S DAY! YOU LOSE!” When he arrived I hammered him with:
HEAVY front squats!
HEAVY deficit deadlifts!
And a good time was had by all. So be careful whenever you train with me and I tell you we are going to take it easy.
