I can officially say that I am 25% of the way through BBG! Since the workouts were the same as those in week 1, I knew what to expect. I learned that I prefer jump squats to jump lunges and that overhead squats with a medicine ball are more difficult than overhead squats with dumbbells.… Continue reading BBG Week 3: Is This a Habit Yet?
The title says it all: the people in the gym are not selfish. We are goal-oriented, determined, challenge-seeking individuals. (And some of us might be adrenaline junkies because sprints rock).
