    Hi Jerry.
    I live in the state capital of South Australia, 500 meters from a beautiful beach. No fires around here.
    But in every State there have been massive devastating fires. Over one BILLION beautiful native animals have died horribly, and many more face starvation. There has never been such a disaster.
    The ruling coalition are determined to maintain there is no such thing as Climate Change, (like another famous person), and are busily mining coal for export and saying on international forums that Australia is doing well in cutting emissions.BULLSHIT!
    The Prime Minister is a good talker, but if he thinks he can get away with this without changing, then he is going to cop it from the Australian people, right between the eyes.

    Glad to hear your safe. Its sad to hear of all the loss of the wildlife.
    I am going to start using my rower for more than warm ups before lifting. I need to do dome cardio, I know when I do my BP improves.

    Glad to hear you get such quick results. "They" say that doing judicious cardio helps you recover better and move faster thru your training. i have relied on 20 reppers for mine, but am finding rowing intervals also hit the spot.

    Last year, i did sort of all right for an old fella, with some improvements. But my lower back wasn't recovering well. So i have been trialling some different workouts.
    Ah la Rip, i have been squatting once a fortnight, with DL on the other week. And doing only a couple of heavy exercises each workout, tho each work out is a whole body affair.
    Something interesting the other day, when it was DL and shrugs, and only C+J that might somewhat work the triceps.
    Well the C+J was light doubles, & because i train where i can't drop the bar (normal practice for lifters after each rep) i lowered it to the shoulders after each rep. So that was an eccentric contraction.
    Surprised how sore the triceps were the next day. Maybe Jones was right.
