  1. When I was in college I used to lift weights 6 days per week. I am 6 foot 1 and I weighed 168 pounds of lean muscle. I was in the prime of my life. That was back in the late 90s. Sometimes the guys on the University football team would be lifting while my friends and I were in the gym. I once watched one of the big lineman do a tricep pull down exercise and he lifted the entire set of weights with one arm. No wonder they can grab running backs by the leg with one hand and pull them down. 🙂 God bless!
