G)  I have a bone to pick with you
CG)  Oh boy…let’s hear it
G)  I did your programming this week and I have to say it seems a little bit too much
CG)  What do you mean?
G)  How can you possibly have a workout with 90 Push Presses in the same workout…my triceps were killing me!
CG)  Your triceps should talk to your hips and tell them to stop sucking so much.  Proper form was the correct way of doing that WOD and definitely not what you did.
G)  Fine…how can you justify having 75 OVerhead Squats with a Row?  Coupling Squats with Row was a poor choice…too much legs!
CG)  Ok…you’re right.  I apologize.  Now leave the gym and go skinny jeans shopping.
G)  Dick.
CG)  Snatch.
G)  …,…What’s up with all these damn Kettlebell Swings!?
CG)  I’m sorry I am programming functional exercises to teach you how to properly use your hips to move a load.  Stop being bad at them and I am sure you’ll stop whining about them.
G)  Whatever…when are we going to do some real strength work?
CG)  You can barely move yourself appropriately in space.  How can you expect to properly move another object?
G)  But I want to get strong!
CG)  Can you do 33 Burpees in 1 minute?
G)  No…
CG)  This conversation is over.  I’ll change the August Baseline to 21-15-9 of Knee Push Ups, Banded Pull Ups and 10 inch Box Step Ups.
G)  That’s still a lot!
CG)  Don’t worry, I’ll scale it for you.

I hate that guy,
