This tall glass of son-of-a-bitch is my trainer. For the past year and a half be has been thinking up inventive ways to abuse me into gaining strength and I've certainly felt the benefits. Yes, I am still built like a teapot, short and stout but that is a battle against my natural predisposition. So for eighteen months he has been miscounting my reps to punish me and torturing me with "one more set." The gym just redid their website and I didn't care for his picture so I took my camera and, arms straining to lift my camera after a tough workout, I made him pose for a few pictures. There is a skylight in the warehouse-like space so I made him stand under it for this shot.
