Man, I got weak real quick. Nobody’s fault but my own. The two 75# shoulder presses were quite possibly the ugliest ever performed by anyone on this planet. Yuck. But they went up, so I guess that’s something.
I spent most of the day building a fence. My job was to shovel dirt, tamp dirt around the posts and hammer staples in. Lotsa arm work. I got bored while I was waiting for the post holes to get dug, so I did presses with the posts. I would guess they weighed around 35-40 pounds, eight feet long and six inches around, give or take. It was actually kind of fun, because they were all shaped different and it was hard to balance them (not to mention hold them with my little hands.) I did about fifty presses altogether, and the person I was working with didn’t even bat an eye when I was doing it. Like doing shoulder presses with big creosote coated fence posts was the most natural thing in the world. Too bad I didn’t have a camera — that would have been a cool picture.
