Today, in my lifeguarding course, I had to pull a 200-pound boy out of the pool in an exercise to practice using our legs when lifting. I, being only 90 pounds, tried pulling and ended up falling into the pool, landing with my lady parts on his face. FML

How is it unfair? As a lifeguard the OP may have to save that boy or someone that size, there's a standard. In the Army we do the same thing, I'm not a big guy and I've had to fireman's carry and drag guys more than twice my size. OP either needs better technique, to hit the gym, or find a new job.


A kid in my class weighed 300 pounds in 6th grade, which is about the age of a 12-year-old. He had an unfortunate thyroid problem and obviously was overweight before 6th grade, though I only found out the poor guy's actual weight when I accidentally overheard the PE teacher tell him during BMI tests. It may not be normal to weigh that much at such a young age, but it isn't impossible, especially with the growing obesity problem in America.

I need a picture.

No, really, I am too damn confused how it ended like that.
I had to pull some really big guys out of the pool (just life saving practice) and I am quite petite myself but have no idea what went wrong with your try.
