No type of gym fitness replaces work fit.
I climbed trees for 12yrs up until the start of covid when I changed career.
I look the same more or less but am a shadow of my former self when it comes to endurance graft.
Amen. A mix if gym, rugby and publishing definitely wouldn't have qualified me for my current life. The 30 year old me would have needed a long lie down after shifting 20 sleepers up steps as I have just done. Do scaffolders still need the same basic qualification, time spent at Her Majesty's pleasure?
Same here, I took up road cycling after I’d been plastering for a couple of years. Loading plaster boards and bags of thistle up multiple flights of stairs every day does good things for your legs. I could beat pretty much anyone I rode with up hill at 90kg.
