I get to lift some awkward stuff from time to time. Today I had to lift a large box and a fire and explosion proof door up a short flight of stairs.

As I went to lift up the box the lady next door said "That looks heavy do you want my trolley?" My reply was "Yes it is heavy but No thanks I don't need a trolley" and I carried that box smiling all the way and threw onto the trailer deck with a loud thud.

Then I manhandled that fire door up the stairs all 90Kgs of it, then I had to have a cup of tea and sit down, I,m an old guy for crying out loud.

See I told you there is more to weight lifting than those widgy little plates you stick on that steel bar all nicely balanced.

Anyway thanks.
