Lifting weights are touted as a great way to get into shape. You can get all buff and tough by lifting weights; you can amp up your weight loss or body building routine by putting ankle weights on while you work out, or by carrying dumbells as you walk, right?
So. I am overweight. Quite overweight. Every time I move, I am “weight lifting”! I have to lift all that weight to get up off the couch or the floor. Every time I go on my morning walk I am packing around a whole lot of weight. I’ve been doing this for years!
My muscles should be so totally ripped by now.
