Graeme, today's fitness tip of the day from Google is below. Made me think of you, as it reiterates what you always say. How right you are.

The key to making your muscles stronger is working them against resistance, whether that be from weights or gravity. If you want to gain muscle strength, try exercises such as lifting weights or rapidly taking the stairs.
