    What have you used your strength for?

    What are some things youve used your strength for in every day life?

    For me:
    1) Groceries
    2) Helping needy ladies with their luggage
    3) Rearrangeing furniture around the house
    4) Moving sound equipment and gear


    I hope ill never have to use it in a fight. outnumber

    work, work and more work. so far all of my work experience is physical labour. I've also used it playing basketball setting picks, grabbing rebounds, and going through picks. and of course, the helping around the house/helping friends move stuff type of thing..

    I handle multiple 60-80lb bags of rock everyday. It's not really heavy but if you handle 100 of em it helps to have some idea of the most efficient way to move the weight. I grabbed one by the top (4" long "handel" above the ziptie) and rowed it up and placed in on my shoulder in one motion. A coworker of mine was impressed, so mabey that is the only reason I do it.

    ..doing pushups with the kids on my back.. and throwing them in the air..
    ..helping friends move heavy items.. (ex: I actually squatted and walked with the neighbors playground set on my back about 25 yards.. he had called over 4 of us guys.. and I didn't want to wait.. so I just got under it, freed it from the ground settling and walked. His wife and kids were quite impressed.. lol)
    ..pushing cars out of ditches and snow banks..
    ..tilling gardens.. moving big rocks out of the way..
    ..strongman events..
    ..tug of war with the wife, kids and dog.. lol.. that was fun.

    I work at a golf course and I have to lift these 300+ lb barrels of golf balls onto carts. Its nice when the older guys, some even in their 30s, have to ask for my help to lift them.

    You know I notice that lifting doesn't seem to help me much in real life. For instance.

    I can deadlift 225 lbs, but I can't seem to pick someone up off the floor (even a 120 lb friend of mine - female of course). Well, I can, but it's much more of a struggle.

    It did help the other day setting up work for T-day. I work as a waiter at a retirement home so we had to move tables around. The two 17 year old, 90 lb girls I work with were fairly impressed when I lifted the tables over my head.

    I've never really thought about it...But weightlifting in general has helped me a lot.

    Since I started I found I can control 4wheelers a lot better when I'm racing (I usually race with my friends Polaris 500 or my stepbrothers Polaris 800, which have a LOT of kick in them and they are 4WD so they have a lot of extra weight). But sometimes it gets to the point where I overestimate and I mess up bad (I flipped the 500 all the way over last week when I was drifting thru a corner, only happened because I got snagged on a root), which is probably the worst about it. I've gotten a lot better with my 4wheeler though, which is a very light Honda Recon 250. When I drift (or get out of tight turns) it usually gets thrown up on two wheels, and I can control it a lot easier (and ride it a lot furthur like that). Before I started to work out I usually couldn't even do that.

    Since I dropped about 60 pounds of fat, I dropped down to 160 and I've been wrestling with my friends (I'm an ex-wrestler, don't plan on going out on the team this year though) and I've noticed I have a lot more power in my chokes/sleepers and slams and I can do a lot more foot drives and go a lot longer then I use to be able to. But I did lose a lot of power in my bear hugs. I also have a lot more speed now, so I can get out of holds faster. Dropping the pounds and gaining the muscle got the football (being able to run as fast as a runningback on 2nd string Varsity but having enough staying power to hold off linebackers comes in handy) and wrestling players wanting me to join up, too. But I declined. (I'll do it for fun but when it gets serious I don't do it. I'd rather not hurt someone).

    I can carry a lot more weight now, which comes in handy when I work around the house or when I work with my dad. When I work with him, it's more endurance. Shoveling a few hundred pounds of dirt, moving a few hundred pounds of sand, picking up and moving pool liners, etc. every day. Usually I'd get tired after the first few trips moving the sand bags or shoveling sand, but I can go a lot furthur now.

    And my favorite: I can pick up my girlfriend a lot easier (I could do it before but I had a bit of trouble... And that was a bit disappointing because she doesn't weigh hardly anything).

    Groceries for sure...I refuse to make a second trip to the car.
    It was good at work....I worked at a camp in the summer. Kids like it when you can hold like 6 of them at a time.
    Moving, obviously. I deadlifted a plasma TV on to a table. My fat and lazy friends was in awe.

    Helping my aging father do yard work, hoisting up heavy ass buckets of broken rock and concrete (yay deadlifts!), etc...

    Makes work easier. Plus my girlfriend seems to be enjoying every new pound of mass I gain. She calls me her "sturdy man".

    My field hockey team of about 14 people had an arm wrestling tournament, and I won. That was pretty cool.

    Everything is easier now. I dunno how to explain it, everything is just easier and more enjoyable.
