That’s a reality that all of us eventually have to come to accept.

Nice CGB. I had to look up the “landline”. Was it supposed to be “landmine”? Or are those two different things?

Skip landmine… sorry

Hi, Goat! I see you’re still lifting some good weights. Any special program these days?

Cav- Hi I trust you are doing well!

No special program. Higher rep stuff during the week when I can get to the gym. I travel a lot in my new job. And weekends when I have more time are a little more strength focused but really it’s all the same … just trying to hold off father time

You’re holding off father time well.

Wait - you have a hernia and you’re pulling 365?? Maybe I should get some of that!

Hey Cav- I wouldn’t recommend it! The Dr. wasn’t all that happy with me when I described my workouts… but what the hell, bubble and tape and I’ll be good as new
