Full Body Metabolic Frenzy: Sore or Sorry by Jori

I’m glad I had a fun time working out – sometimes a lot of smaller sets in a workout can make for a great variety and lessening of dread. I’m PMSing now & had a rest day yesterday (bad for mood), along with a SUPER ANNOYING day (really, really bad). I needed the rest though.

Heavy Volume Glute Lift with Squat Jumps

Sandbag / waterbag adventure continues! Haven’t heard back from Iron Core Athletics / Retro Technologies, as to whether or not they’re going to help me out in getting additional, smaller filler bags at less than the a la carte cost.
