One of the highlights of my day is this:
The photo above is beautiful, but the highlight is taking my 12-year-old chocolate lab down to the lake so he can play fetch with sticks in the water. While he was swimming and chasing the posts, I could sit and enjoy the fantastic fall sunset.
I hope you enjoy little things like when I play fetch with my dog at the lake.

What is Bench Press?
The bench press is a strength exercise that requires you to lie on a flat bench with your upper back and legs firmly planted on the floor and your arms extended out in front of you. You then lift the weight off the bench and lower it to the starting position.
The bench press is an effective upper body strength exercise that works the pectorals, triceps, and deltoids. It targets all three groups in addition to the core muscles that help keep your torso stable throughout the lift. Like any other strength exercise, proper form is essential for maximizing results and minimizing injury potential.
The bench press has several variations, depending on your goals and experience level. It is a great lower body exercise, but it’s not for everyone. If you’re out of shape or have back or shoulder issues, you should avoid them.
But if you can make this move safely and with proper form, it’s a fantastic way to build muscle and strength. Plus, it’s a great way to simultaneously work the chest, triceps, and shoulders! One of the best ways to improve your bench press is with the help of a spotter. A spotter will hold onto one side of your bench while you lift. This will allow you to balance and keep your body in check as you press down on the bar.
Another way to improve your bench press is by using lighter weights. Sometimes we can get so used to lifting heavy weights that we’re surprised at how challenging it can be when we start lifting lighter weights. The results may not show immediately, but steady progress will be seen as your muscles adapt to the new weight you are lifting each week.
I hope you enjoyed the interview.
