^ Thanks, friend. Tried a suggested circuit today and no pain. May be sore tomorrow. And I daresay that muscle soreness beats joint pain any day of the week.
This is a departure from the slightly crazy stuff I was doing. But I feel better about myself. A centerpiece of my 'elevator speech', for business leads groups I attend, have me inveighing against the obsessions and compulsions of the fitness world, and the way in which trainers foist their anxieties on their clients. I'd much prefer to convey to prospective clients and trainer who employs the same, sane strategies that he would recommend to them.
