Tuesday
No chance of a lay in today. I had five new steel exterior doors arrive (for my home - a former club house) at 7.30am or so. A couple are seriously heavy and the rest just heavy ha ha. Even with a neighbor giving me a hand with the last two I was sweating - all before breakfast. It'll be a veritable Fort Knox when it's done (with luck next week). Then I had my builder over (I have a 'my builder' now lol) literally after I did 2 x 1 reps on the heavy set. So between rep 2 and rep 3 there was a 30 minute gap. But going all over the building kept me warmed up.

Hey Steve, sounds like that was a workout in itself. Do you have a lot of break ins in your area? Anyway can't be too safe these days.
Regards,Peter.
