"hey! i can jerk you!"

lol...i probably should have searched for a similar thread, but that's k.

i was playing poker last night with a bunch of guys that i don't know all that well (this was only my second time at the table). my back and neck had been really tight from GTGing my pullups and i was just destroyed from the CFT the other day as well, so i'm trying to get out some of the knots in my neck when the host asks, "why are you so sore, renee?"

me: "oh, well i did heavy squats and deadlifts yesterday"
table: *overall shock and surprise*
him: "wow...i've never done one of any of those"
him: "so what you're saying is that you could kick my ass?"
me: "probably. i can throw 100lbs over my head too"
him: "wait, what? i'm100lbs"
me: "hah, i could totally jerk you"
him: "did you want to rephrase that?"
me: "nothx" *giggle*

(i don't think my split jerk is actually that strong, i got 90 in nov...but whatever)

just wanted to share! anybody else got any good stories like this?

Re: "hey! i can jerk you!"

I tried to back squat a 160lb third class petty officer the other day....almost got parallel, but I was laughing so hard I almost ran his head into a filing cabinet.

Now he doesn't want to play those games anymore

Re: "hey! i can jerk you!"

Eh, we treat him like a kid brother....and he hates it.

I think you should put a bet on the table next time to jerk the lightest loser.......(does the word loser apply? I totally don't play poker).

Re: "hey! i can jerk you!"

How tiny is this dude if he only weighs 100lbs? I weighed a 100lbs in the 6th grade and I wasn't even that big!

In the Sheriff of Ramadi it mentions a Fight Gone Bad type workout that the SEALs did, and it involved buddy back squats.

LOL, my inspiration was Kerry Guere...ever since Bob posted about her back squatting a marine, I've been eyeing anyone who looks like they may be 170 or less.

That's pretty funny Amber... and a good idea.

Maybe when my knee is fixed we can get a video of me (one of the smallest guys in my gym) doing buddy back squats with the biggest guy in my gym on my back. I think Mike is 6'2" ~ 265#. I imagine balance becomes a factor after a few reps unless you go very slowly.
