I was recently flogged by a Personal Trainer with a barrage of squats on account of my whithering fine form.
Apparently I use to be in quite fine form, which is why my now wife, married me. Sadly, it was no longer the case, my fine form that is.

Hence, they are used quite a lot by personal trainers for good, quick results, particularly for women as that is an area most women (and men) in the western world would like to improve somewhat.
So, back to the toilet and my current Continue reading »
