Lazy College Kid with No Workout Routine
I know this college kid that is extremely lazy when it comes to working out. He doesn’t do any kind of exercise and wishes that he was muscular and diesel. The guy can’t even do one push up! Don’t get me wrong, when I first started out I couldn’t do any push ups either. I couldn’t even hold my self in the up position of a push up. That’s how out of shape my body was. That was in 1995. Today I can do about 40 push ups in one set. The most push ups I have ever done in one set is about 72.
This kid, who we will call Platty Boy, once asked me to help him get in shape because he had no workout routine. I told him to adjust little things in his life so that the change can be gradual. I advised he do three sets of push ups, alternating days and to go for walks. I also told him to eat a bit healthier: fruits, more water, less bread, etc. The first week he did it he was excited, but then the excitement died out.
He wasn’t able to do any push ups and was very discouraged with that fact. I told him to start off my holding himself in the up position of a push up until failure, and to do that three to four times per day. That was to be his workout routine. The reasoning behind it was that he would eventually build up enough strength and muscle to start doing push ups. I think he only did it for a couple of days and then gave up.
Platty Boy isn’t extremely overweight, but he was noticeably out of shape. He was more like a skinny fat guy, something that I find really weird. A skinny dude with man boobs. LOL. If you’re fat, be fat. Not half fat. The funny thing about him is that he is really dedicated to his musical band and all that they do, but he can’t dedicate a few minutes a day for his own health.
Go figure. Platty Boy, if you’re reading this, I’m here for ya man!
