" That was a great squat session. Your work capacity is impressive.
Do you do any additional conditioning training on days that you do not lift?"

[Blushes] Plan A is to do a brisk walk 5 days a week. Doesn’t happen. Things should get better very soon with the swimming season about to start. At the moment, all i am doing is daily home gardening (which by the way is ideal for workout recovery.) Thanks for your kind words Fred.
Incidently, in all my workouts i never sit down, just walk up and down, and go on the next set as soon as i can. I think this makes for good conditioning.
