    Thanks for the encouraging words my friend. As I wrote in the log it sure was hot in my garage and will be the next time i workout. i keep reading here on this site that high reps dont build strength and are not good for old joints then I read other info that one good set is all you need to get strong. i like the fact that the high reps seem to get my heart rate up and have me breathing hard. i am lucky to be able to workout at all, they still have all gyms in my state and surrounding states closed. well lets not quit now, i feel lifting a way to beat this CV19 crap.

    Well Jerry, while i admire a big one rep max, it does not relate to fitness or health. When i was doing well with hi-rep breathing squats i was plenty strong and conditioned well above average. Going to be interesting where 20 rep deadlifts take me this year. Never done them before, but i got a feelin' of forebodin'.
    Totally convinced lifting gives us unmatched health and mental power and confidence.
    4 degrees C here last night (39 F).
    The powers that be here shut us down quick, and socially distanced us. All gyms and shops and all re-opened after a couple of months. No cases here.
