by Joseph I devoted my workout to flat bench presses last week. Here are the results of the workout: Tuesday, July 23, 2019 barbell flat bench press 135 lb x 5 reps x 1 set 155 lb x 5 x 4 175 lb x 2 x 1 175 lb x 5 x 2 185 lb x 2 x 1 lateral pulldown neutral grip 150 lb x 6 x 1 The exercises were good; thinking back on it, though, I should have done fewer sets at 155 pounds because it took away steam that I could have used to go for...

by Joseph I did not go to the gym last week, but I still found time to exercise. I decided to write this entry about mowing my lawn with a manual mower. It takes a great deal more effort to cut grass using your own power rather than a gas powered machine. I am grateful for functional strength, being able to move about and do things because there are millions upon millions of people who are unable to do so. When I return to the gym, I'll be lifting heavy again. I'll keep you posted. But even if you should... Continue reading

Most importantly, ask them for a referral!For those of you married or with partners, think back to when you met them. Were you with someone you know, was there a connection to someone you know - or were they complete strangers that you just walked up to?

How to Take Proper Care of Your Pet to Make Him/Her Healthy By Sharon Jones When it comes to the well-being of our pets, it takes great observation and knowledge to understand the harmful symptoms. Since there is a communication gap between humans and animals we are only able to identify disorders when they have developed to a visible stage on the body. Otherwise, we can always look out for the changes in behavioral patterns, abnormalities, and change in the habits of the animal to notice what's wrong. Caring for our furry friend requires great effort as well. Apart from... Continue reading

Fishing for Leads - The 5 Steps By: Peter Lawless The first thing that I noticed when I got onto the small boat at the harbour in Enniscrone, Co. Sligo, was the cleanliness and order of the boat. The skipper in charge had all of the rods, upright, with their lines neatly tucked away, in holders. The holders were made out of piping, about 30cm long, which had been welded to the side of the boat. A simple, inexpensive aid had made me sit up and pay attention. This skipper thought about his customers, and this device left a strong... Continue reading

by Joseph I should be able to fit some time into my schedule to return to the gym this weekend. It has been more than one month since I worked out with heavy weights. I need to get back to what I enjoy doing; cardio is fine, but it is no substitute for heavy weight training. I've written and published numerous articles about the benefits of cardiovascular exercise and strength training with heavy weights. You also know that I have a strong preference for intense strength training. But whichever you choose, both are healthier than sitting around doing nothing. I... Continue reading

5 Signs That You Need A New Pet Sitter By Mary L. James When it comes to our pets, we only want the best. We want them to be safe while we are away. Many dog parents who work full time jobs hire a pet sitter to feed, play, walk or simply keep their furry friends company in their absence.

So if you currently have one employed, here... Continue reading

To get great coverage, you need a great media list By: Shannon Cherry You've written a great press release and it's ready to go. But the bigger question remains: who do I send it to? Before you begin sending the release to anyone and everyone, take heed. By not targeting the release to the right person at the right media outlet, your release will simply go into the trash and you'll never gain the respect of any reporter.

by Joseph I will be returning to the gym very soon. In the meantime, I set aside time for stair climbing. Aerobics is no substitute for heavy weight training, but it is still exercise. I will be putting in a lot of strength training workouts, so the cardio is a decent prep in and of itself. I'll keep you posted. But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed.
