Working It Out.

This is the brutality we suffered at the hands of our trainer last night.  Give it a whirl if you feel up to it.  You’ll sweat like a mofo and your jeans will be too big the next day.  Bonus!

Thursday, 8/15 Workout

Note: Each “set” is done 3 times through with no resting between each exercise. Do the designated number of reps for each exercise in the set in order, and then repeat 3 times.  Once you have gone through the series of exercises 3 times, move on to the next set.
