Seem to be the Jack of all programming trades these days, know a little bit of everything, enough to be dangerous anyway.

comment Bench Pressing vs. Push-ups
Bench pressing with dumbbells is another option if you don't have a spotter as at failure you can drop them to your sides.
comment Effective warm-up before weight lifting circuit
I tried what you suggested at the gym last night, 10 mins cardio warm up then doing a 10 rep set will light weights before the main reps. My muscles feel less achy this morning so looks like it helped Thanks :)
comment How can an overweight engineer get back in shape?
Thanks Joe, I really think the walks (with or without a dog) got me kick started. I think initially if I went to the gym I would have been too embarrassed at my lack of fitness on the cardio machines.
