    How many of us didn't abused our bodies when young? While still in my teens, I used to carry a 100# sack of potatoes on each shoulder when we unloaded them from the truck to pile them in the grocery store where I worked.

    I was carrying a new plasma cutter across my shop a few years ago when the back, finally, quit me. Spinal fusion saved me for a bit, but I ended up with foot drop from the stenosis.

    I've done my darndest to use it up and wear it out in my 78 years, and still going strong most every day. Damn lucky!

    I can relate in my mid teen years I often put piece of 1 1/2" pipe into the end of a 33 ft joint 4 1/2" of drill stem to give me something to use as a handle while the guy on the other end did the same then we would carry it from the stock pile into the blacksmith shop. Or when hauling hay grab a fresh green bale of Alfalfa by the wires in each hand then carry not drag those 100+ lb bales to the truck then buck them up to the guy stacking. Or grab a couple of 100lb sacks of peanuts by the ears pick them up and toss them on my shoulders then carry them into the dryer while in my late 30s while modifying a D10 dozer blade a 1000lb hunk of it broke off from a weld that I hadn't even cut yet struck me on my rt shoulder but fortunately it pinched me out like the puss of a pimple all I got from it was a compression fracture of the T12 I refused to let them cut on me wore a brace for a couple months but stopped taking the pain meds after the first few days because I couldn't tell if I was doing more injury to my back while unblocking my Mobile home to be moved I crawled around under the thing dragging the cement blocks out then loaded them in a trailer.
    Fast forward to now at 65 or I will be next month I do well to toss a 50 lb sack of feed one both shoulders then carry them 100 feet to the crib. Should use my big 2 wheeler but more trouble to walk the 100 yards to and from where it is located at to haul just a couple sacks of feed than it is to carry them. I draw the line at having to pick up anything more than 125 lbs now
