On 11/19 I started the Javorek Dumbbell General Fitness 12 week weight training plan.  I'm now through the first two weeks and let me tell you, it's kicking my ass!!  I'm definitely hoping it produces results because it is definitely making me work very hard.  It's been nice being on weight training again.  It gives a similar b…
