    About 3 months ago, I added pull-ups and push-ups to my fitness routine. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays I do 4 sets of 4 pull-ups, then four sets of 10 push-ups. It was quite difficult at first, but I've doing them like clockwork, and it's been getting easier and easier.

    The other day I picked up my Les Paul, and it felt much lighter than usual. It looked at it just to make sure I had the right axe in my hand - yep, it was the Les Paul all right, but it felt lighter than it had in years. In fact, all my guitars feel lighter now - it's great!

    I'm tempted to try to pick up my Mesa Boogie amp, but don't want to press my luck ...

    ....and played guitar.
    He found that when his fans moved away from him, his playing got slower; when they moved towards him, his playing got faster.

    Einstein also proved painting flames on a guitar makes it sound faster.

    On the contrary. Now is the time for a full stack. Count it as part of your workout routine.

    Eh... If you say so.

    I played 4 years of HS football, and was benching close to 400lbs my senior year.

    I still found my Les Paul ridiculously heavy lol.

    It’s good you’re getting fit

    I’ve been working out now for 4 months and haven’t noticed guitars getting lighter, the weights are getting easier
