Thanks for letting us lead you today brothers! It was fun to include a little weight into the workout…even though the older I get, I keep including more weight into my workouts naturally. TClaps to Monkey for posting and Qing some lower body workouts in spite of his nagging shoulder problems. Great job by everyone in our 40+ club (obviously, the best club to be in). See you in the gloom next time!
