Ideal conditions are for an Ideal World.

Still, sticking to the prescribed plan laid out by these orderly routines is very desirable. The body will respond to the consistent overload, the chemistry of the system (hormones, enzymes, metabolism, immune system) becomes more defined and healthier, and your psychological health and mental toughness improves big time. You're invested. You're cleaning out the attic and the junk in the trunk.

And now where may I drop you!
