An American in China

Chinese Equality

Went to the gym again, all the Chinese food is catching up with me, it is true, it is impossible to get a bad meal in this place. Anyway, I went to the gym, and I think the Chinese have achieved parity. Yesterday, I saw a couple of 25 year old guys benching about 50lbs no lie. It always seemed to me that the Chinese were slight of build, and didtn appear to be that strong, but 50lbs? I come from the Midwest where the people are strong, very strong, its that northern European stock in them, so to watch grown men fighting with such a small weight is amusing. The funny thing is that the women don’t do to badly, they can trow up a decent amount of weight, especially comparing to the men here.
