Don't get me wrong, It's very flattering, but at the same time it's also extremely homosexual of you to ask me.

Can't blame a gal for trying

Let's keep in mind strong boys stats are posted on an internet forum and haven't exactly been proven.

For the record I typed all this with one arm while finishing my set of 300 one arm push ups.

My stats are by no means amazing. A little dedication and most people could reach those stats. 100 push ups in under 2.5 minutes is achieved by a matter of doing it over and over. Sounds difficult now, it won't after doing push ups every day. It's the same thing with any kind of repetition. Juggling a soccer ball etc...just takes practice and hard work. Crunches...same thing. Pull ups, I've always been able to do them well. I have a strong upper back. It's why I'm a good rock climber as well. I can't throw up 200+lbs on a bench press. I can't curl probably more than 50 pounds. I do resistance training using my body (and bands) and that's it. I'm probably in no better shape than your average soldier or Marine. Add a good diet into the mix and wallah.

I beat 100 pushups over 2 min by just doing LE training in an upper body sport.

Yuck. You probably look horrible.

Didnt you hear, he has the body of Bruce Lee.

Yeah, I've been at some of those ceremonies when they come off the plane coming home in droves. Lots of soldiers have guts and are a little more than overweight... Not sure what he's trying to get at with that little bit of info...

Years of biology and physiology courses beg to differ. The caloric content of vegetables is usually from starch which is pretty much what you consider to be sugar. The only reason why health experts say sugars like those found in donuts is unhealthy is because those are absorbed more easily by the body and don't have to be broken down through enzymatic processes. This quick absorption creates undesirable spikes in insulin and other hormones. Basically your body goes: HOLY FVCK WHAT IS THIS SHIT. So, basically, a calorie is a calorie. There is no such thing as a "vegetable calorie" and a "donut calorie". Lando's weight loss regimen sounds like a recipe for becoming skinny-fat. Hardly ideal. Its like being fat and having none of the strength that comes with it. Doing a high number of repetitions of bodyweight exercises is easy if you are sufficiently light; your tendons will do all the work. I've seen stick thin sorority girls do an obscene number of pullups with relative ease.

Nice edit. You originally said "I've seen stick thin girls do 100+ pullups easily." Lmao, no you haven't. You have not seen thin girls do obscene amounts of pull ups either. There's a reason they allowed girls to do the "bar hang" instead of doing actual pull ups in middle school. They simply don't have the upper body strength-whether they are fat or skinny. My sister is in great shape...can't do a single pull up. I know guys who are in great shape that can barely manage to do 3. You're just mad that you're only 5'5" and have a raging napoleon complex. "your tendons will do all the work" My well defined abs, triceps, lats and biceps would beg to differ. I suppose it's my tendons that allow me to do 20-25 pull ups lol. You are hilarious. And by hilarious I mean retarded. Recipe for skinny fat? I get a ton of protein in my diet. I'm hardly what you'd call skinny fat. Plenty of boxers fight at my height and weight. They are lean and strong, just like I am. Sounds like you are another jealous fat gay. Possibly short and fat? Let's see what some actual M.D.s and Scientists have to say about the whole "not all calories are created equal" subject, shall we? http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...oryId=15886898 Go on with the borophyll.

There are different goals and different measures of "strength."

Being able to do 25 pullups is a good/difficult athletic achievement;
Being able to bench 1.5x bodyweight is a good/difficult athletic achievement;
Being able to run 3 miles in 18 minutes is a good/difficult athletic achievement;
Etc., I could go on.

Just because the vast majority of people want to look like Arnold doesn't mean that is the be-all-end-all of physical fitness. Strength (i.e. high 1 rep max) is not the greatest measure of physical fitness. It may be your goal, but that doesn't mean it should be everyone's goal. Also, being able to do super-high reps at low weight as some Bruce Lee wanna-be achievement isn't the penultimate achievement, either.

So everybody advocating "one universal goal for everyone" please stfu.

I think some of you need to look at the bodies of rock climbers. The only training many of them do is bouldering or climbing. By the way, they are using the resistance of only their body weight. Man, these guys must have some really strong tendons! lmao. Most of you wouldn't know anything about rock climbing because you couldn't get your fat selves passed the first hole.

I saw a guy doing bro pull-ups tonight at the gym (half ROM and hands perpendicular to shoulders rather than palms facing forward.). Reminded me of landoeffincalrissian.
