Sorry, Gail, but your train is on the wrong track. I'm not sexest, but I'm even more NOT pc.
At 65 years old I don't plan to become pc. If you can lift a medium full of honey, you can lift a deep full of brood.
As I said above, there is no reason for a hobbyist to ever lift a deep full of honey, and with one hive, I don't think I would call you a commercial beek.
PS. At 65, with arthritis, bad back, bad lungs, and two bad hips, I can still carry a deep of honey if I don't have to bend over.
Like Kathy says, maybe it's time for a trip to the gym.
