Performed elevated block mericans at one end of the parking lot and sandbag (alternating between #45 and #60 bags) ground to shoulder lifts at the other.  Farmer carried two 5 gallon buckets of swamp water between exercise stations.  A total of 11 reps were performed each round starting with 10 ground to shoulders and 1 elevated merican.


I mentioned the discussion I had with my doctor during my annual physical about exercise.  He lectured me on the need to continue to stay active.  His point of view was that many men are active most of their lives but  reach my age and allow other obligations to take away from that practice.  Your body does not handle the change well after expecting that stimulus received from exercising from the last 30 years.  He said he sees the individuals who quit being active health take a nosedive and he has to start treating them for high blood pressure and depression.  It was an interesting take from a medical profession.  To me it was great feedback to keep seeing your faces in the gloom.
