    muscle indurance not changeing over a year.... Why?

    The problem: I am a custodian for a school, since coved started I have to pick up every chair, carry it to a location, and stack it. To save time, I carry 1 chair in each hand, so I do 2 at a time. Normally I do about 150 chairs, today my helper is not here, so I will be doing ALL the chairs; about 300! I have been doing it since coved started over 1 year ago. By Friday my arms are very tired.....

    The question: After over a year of lifting and carrying 150 - 300 chairs, you would think it would be a lot easier by now. So why by Friday is my arms still just as wore-out and tired as they were a year ago? Any suggestions on what I can do to fix the problem.

    Thank you!

    Umm, when you work out, do a bunch of farmer's walks with heavier weight than the chairs? Specificity, progressive overload... all that fun stuff.
    Why NOT?

    Because you're lifting the same amount of weight each week, and perhaps eating the same amount of food each week. So your body is just remaining at the same level, no weaker and no stronger.

    You doubled your load. You likely recruited some fast twitch muscle fibers that previously were not needed when lifting a single chair with one hand.

    If it took you a week to get tired, then it sounds like you are close to an ideal workout weight. See how you feel after the weekend. Maybe you can do it again next week. Or better yet, alternate between 2 chairs at a time and one chair, so you get some interval training going.

    Thanks for the advice. I will need to look up what "farmers" are; but I can do that.

    To the one asking about my soreness... I still have bad says, just not as often as I used to.

    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    Some things, like farmers' walk never get easier. By that I mean it always feels bad and some of this is mental training to tune out of hardship.
    Sure if you gradually increment load/time/whatever and improve, then you drop back to the original load yes of course that it will feel easier. But if you stay at load X long term - doing load X will always be a bit miserable long term and not much will change. I've yet to meet someone that does a hard physical work like farm work (some of my inlaws) who said after a few years it becomes easy, they just say it's always tough and you learn to deal with it.

    It seems to be an issue with some of the unpleasant endurance things in leisure also, like rucking, farmers' walk/suitcase walk etc.
    If you could do a small amount of comparable exercises (but for done for strength not endurance) like tyre flipping, carrying heavy kettle bells (or similar) on say a friday night (as you need recovery time before Monday) starting low and incrementing painfully slowly, just maybe as your strength increases, the day-job will become marginally less unpleasant.

    I might be full of BS here, so if anyone has a better idea...
