I had a pretty fantastic workout with the exception of breaking the motor cover on our treadmill. From the looks of it, might be a better investment to simply upgrade this 13 year old machine. We’ll see, for now a temporary fix will have to suffice. Anyway onto the workout. 25 burpee to pull ups … Read More

Every day does not need to be an extraordinarily difficult, balls-to-the-wall, superhero workout. Sometimes it’s good to take slow things down, and isolate the areas that need the most attention to prevent any serious injuries from arising. I’ve been nursing a few myself for over a month now. I’ve mentioned my right knee being a … Read More
