Getting a grip

It’s exercise, stupid.

I knew it, I knew it.  I’ve known it for years, but  I kept hoping it would go away.

Research that I’ve read in the last week found that the stronger a person’s grip, the longer their life expectancy.  Life expectancy is correlated with lots of other small examples of physical strength and stamina as well – how fast you can walk or how easily one gets out of a chair.

I’d sort of been hoping the magic elixir would be chocolate.

But I guess I’ll keep on trying to open bottle caps with my bare hands instead.

Do you think that will work?
