If you don't know some hebrew, skip this

A new guy in Shul, Moshe, is asked to do Hagbah. It was a pitiful sight. He could barely lift the Sefer Torah, almost drops it and sits down VERY quickly.
He was very embarrassed and makes a resolution to go home and work out. For the next few months, he lifts weights, does push ups, sit ups and pull ups. He's ready.
The next Shabbos Moshe goes to Shul and he's all excited and ready. All of a sudden he hears the Gabbai call his name, so he rushes up to the Bima, grabs the Sefer Torah, lifts it and opens up at least 10 columns. Swings it to the left and then to the right.
He's feeling VERY proud. He turns to the Gabbai and says, "So, how was it ?"
The Gabbai says, "Well your Hagbah was great, but I called you up for Shlishi"
