Instead of going to the gym this week I decided I would chop 4 trees into logs for the stove.
With an axe. Just an axe.
The picture shows ONE of the three piles of wood I made. I reckon about 5 tonnes of wood. I still have a couple of tonnes left but need a chainsaw or hydraulic log splitter.
SO about a thousand ‘wood-chops’ – but actual wood chops. Literally. A thousand squats/lunges/dead-lifts (I had to carry the logs across the garded to chop then back again to stow).
I feel a) knackered, b) physically wasted and c) in pain
So unless you have a garden with some trees in to chop down you need a gym.
And if you do have some trees to chop you are probably gonna need a physio.
