Arm workout

We all know the common hard tasks to do after a solid legs session, like driving the car, siting on the toilet, tackling a flight of stairs.

But what about after an arms day? Well this afternoon I discovered it is  extremely uncomfortable to hang out clothes after doing an arm session.. the extra effort of lifting my arms each time sparked an ache that made me realise I worked hard.
