Day One of minimalist training: Practiced Turkish Get Up (TGU) for five minutes with 35 lb. dumbbell. Still a little herky-jerky and will stick with this weight until I smooth things out. Then performed fifty continuous swings with same dumbbell. Will increase weight Friday. Finished with leisurely two-mile walk and short stretch. Note: starting at 6-0 158 and will make no conscious changes to diet.
