There’s always someone stronger

Or smarter, faster, richer, nicer, or better-looking than you out there somewhere. I was feeling pretty self-satisfied at the gym today after ripping through four sets of dumbbell shoulder press. I thought I’d go for reps instead of weight, so I did a 12-10-10-10 series starting with a pair of 20 kilos and ending at 26 kilos. I was feeling pretty good, I just felt kind of… felt kind of invincible.

And then this guy came over, picked up the 26-kilo dumbbells and started doing shoulders too. He did a set of 10 as well. The thing is, he did a set of 10 flies.
