If this is 2020, is this the year of hindsight?

Infinitely more than doing none if you divide and virtually no effect if you subtract.

Fixed recommendations.

Somebody must have been suffering from holiday cheer when starting this thread. :eek:

I was out on a ride and missed the first page of the new Edition.

Sad!

You're probably joking but last week I did two sets of five push-ups. And it's the first ones I had done in months.

Pull ups.

Riding up grades?

We have safely arrived in Long Branch, NJ for New Year’s Day festivities.

I've been doing 3 sets of girls push ups after my trainer rides for a couple weeks now. I can now do a set of regular push ups for my first set of 10.
V.V. military press and pull downs on a curling bar machi e would help with your pull up regimen. Also do chin ups, easier.

My wife refused to throw them out so fate will be tempted sometime in the future.

Not joking. Just tried and I managed one. I'll try again tomorrow.

Don't forget, I'm old and overweight and have my own litany of bodily defects. I did manage a max power of 813 watts on my ride today, 3 second power was 677 watts, so it depends which muscle group we're checking, I guess. Leave my puny arms out of it. :D

I'll probably have diarrhea just from the 5 squares that I ate. :(
