LOL  ;D

I actually also took yesterday off as I trained on the weekend which was weird for me, but the weather was great and I was attempting to dodge a snowstorm.

And I was as sore as Hell after increasing my volume after being off for a bit.

Weekends off as always.

Because of Christmas the University gym I train at will re-open on Wednesday so next week I`ll be  training Wed.-Sat.

Probably a good thing as I have a tender elbow from doing Skullcrushers and a bad wrist at the moment.

Happy Holidays to all.
