I enjoyed that.

It reminded me of one time when I was working out in the high school weight room.  I was 21, 5'-10" tall and weighed 142 pounds.  I decided to go for a max on the bench, so I put 275 pounds on the bar.  As I sat down, a big, fat football player said, "Are you going to lift that?  HYUK.  HYUK." 

"I'm going to try."

I brought it down, popped it back up and racked it, no problem or hesitation.  His jaw was still hanging open when I left the room.

Well, maybe a bean pole for a college kid, but I was much skinnier in high school.  I wrestled at 126 as a junior and senior.  My sophomore year was my first year of wrestling.  I weighed 120 pounds (walking around weight) and  would only lose about a half pound of sweat during a hard two hour practice.  It actually took a while to get down to 119.  One kid I wrestled that year was 6'-1" tall.  My coach had me drop down to 115 late in the season.  Big mistake.  I was weak as a kitten, then had to go up to 122 when the senior at the weight below me didn't make weight.

There was a kid from my high school that was at least 6'1 that wrestled 112 lbs.
