Default Primal Law#4 Lift heavy things

Short intense sessions of multiple body part resistance exercises. WRT muscle strength, bone density ...

A couple of the practical applications I learned right here at 3FC are Crossfit and Tabata.

I like lifting too! However ... I don't like a routine. When I feel like lifting, I like to look up a body part and do it. But I run out of "want to" after 15 or 20 minutes.

Fortunately, that happens a couple of times a week.

I feel pretty good for an old gal. I'm certainly strong enough for my work and for tossing my granddaughter around on a bouncy pad
