Workout Summary: 5.24.17

This was my first #walkfunnyday back in the bulk-building schedule and it was intense! I think it was so much easier to do fewer reps of leg exercises, even though the weight was higher. Today it felt like I hadn’t done legs in months. A good sign, I guess?

The lower rest times really allow me to pack in those lifts. We were done so early I got a good core session and some stretches to boot. And I even showed up late!

The wife and I are going to try out cryotherapy tonight. It’s supposed to release all inflammation from your body at once and send you on a 6-hour endorphin high. I’ll be sure to tell you all about it!
