You can all go around now and tell everyone at work that you know the definition of “stamina”. Congratulations. Then when your boss says something about your upcoming quarterly review, you can challenge him to a pull-up competition to demonstrate your newly acquired knowledge.
I can see it now… You reach into your bottom desk drawer and pull out a telescoping door-mounted pull-up bar and quickly install it in your boss’s doorway before he knows what’s going on. You jump up and do 20 strict pullups (no kipping – this IS your place of business and all), and yell “HA! Top THAT monkey boy!” to your boss when you come down off the bar. You’re not even breathing hard, but you are strutting a little for the crowd that has gathered.
Feeling the pressure from the onlookers, your boss tentatively grabs the bar and to everyone’s amazement (including your boss’s), he performs 3 flawless reps. On the 4th rep he gets about halfway up – he’s pulling and pulling and pulling (but nothing’s happening), and finally he comes off the bar with a “kiss your quarterly bonus goodbye” look on his face.
“See,” you explain condescendingly, “the reason you couldn’t get that 4th pullup is because your stamina sucks. And because you’re a giant weenie.” (You already gave up your quarterly bonus – you may as well earn the punishment) Then you hand him my card and tell him to give me a call to de-weenie-ize himself.
