Getting stronger, an inch at a time

Gym lockers
This may be the last week i wear a sweatshirt to walk to the gym. For the next seven months, the morning low is unlikely to dip below 70 degrees.

Getting stronger, an inch at a time. 

Being a distance runner in flat terrain doesn’t make your legs strong. Yes, you gain leg stamina, but leg strength is acquired differently.

Muscle strength is helpful at all ages, and especially advantageous in your post-50 years.

Without stressing out about it or pushing myself, i’ve slowly and steadily increased what used to be my maximum weight on the final of three sets of 10 leg curls to the first set’s weight.
