so I'm at a big box gym today working out my legs.

after the requisite 5X5 squats and lunges I go into the room where they do step aerobics and set-up a step to do 22" box-jumps and side jump-overs.

there are 2 little old ladies sitting down in there, jib-jabbering away, waiting for their senior step class to begin in 20 minutes.

I commence jumping onto my platform (not quite as gracefully as Jesse Woody would do it:bowdown:) and then one of the little old ladies takes it upon herself to tell me that what I am doing is bad for my ankles, my knees and my hips. furthermore she added that when I get older the damage that I am causing my joints will prevent me from being able to move around without a wheelchair.

what would your response to her be?:g:

Whoa, thanks for the warning.

Douglas Chapman 12-27-2006 03:31 PM

Push here down and see if she can get up.

Lynne Pitts 12-27-2006 03:50 PM

Uh, Doug, we'll take that as kidding, eh? Jeez. You guys should be happy that the little old ladies are at the gym and not in wheelchairs themselves, without having to put them down.

You should have said, "thanks for your concern, ma'am, but I'm crazy, and I'll be fine. I hope you all have a nice class."

Just be grateful the ladies were not curling in the power rack.

Our new t-shirt "Our little old ladies can beat yours"

All in good fun.

I'm still laughing Doug. Thats funny, thanks.

Douglas Chapman 12-27-2006 05:37 PM

To tell you the truth, I am glad we are slow during this week and have time to post.

Becca Borawski 12-27-2006 05:48 PM

Yeah, me too - I keep laughing again every time I see this thread, picturing Doug shoving his way through the old ladies at the gym!
