Mike is THE perfect example of a mesomorph. The dude is seriously muscular and naturally athletic. Years ago, he ran a 45 minute 10km (which he didn't really train for, see he was into weightlifting back then), and then HAD A CIGARETTE AT THE FINISH. I kid you not.
I got cocky a few years ago and challenged him to a sprint down the block....
Jake (his son) was visiting us that weekend, and he stood at the end of the block with his hands in the air, race-car style. When he dropped his arms, we took off, and Mikey took off like a freaking torpedo. I was laughing so hard, he slowed down and started asking me, "Oh! Do you need me to take it a little easier for you?" Hahahahahahaha!!!!
Yeah, I have the endurance, but Mike is a natural -- you should have seen him swimming/snorkeling in Hawaii. If he ever quits smoking and decides to take up sport ---- EGAD!!!!!!!
These are his calves with him not working out at all......Unbelievable.
