"OVERTRAINING" With Those Size Arms
I surely don't understand what just happened But a person in my past just came to thoughts. Hope you enjoy this little story.
In 1966 my first day of high school. I'm walking down one corridor and as I look up here comes a senior named Greg. Greg is 5" 9" tall a high school senior with cannons for arms, ( 20 1/2" ) with a max bench press of 425 lbs.
So later that night I'm talking to my older brother who's on the wrestling team (also a senior) and ask Gary do you know the guy with those big arms cause he's scary looking. My brother replies yes his name is Gred and I sometimes lift weights with him.
Well time to get to the point. As time goes on I finally get to meet Greg. Come to find out Greg is all natural and had been lifting since 8th grade. The funny thing is Greg had been lifting 7 days a week for the last 3 years and sometimes twice a day.
I always here of overtraining and have no idea back in the 60"s if people knew of such a thing as overtraining. How was it that Greg was able to get a way with it. 7 days a week and sometimes 2 x a day.
I know what your thinking a fish story where the fish gets larger everytime it's told. But gentleman this is a true story.
