Battling A Cold? So What! Go Workout!

Barbell Incline w/ Resistance Band

Today was a beast of a workout because I am battling a nasty cold. I’ve been sick the past few days and said chalk the gym. Today I decided at the last minute sick or not, I had to get a good workout in. The gym closes at 9pm but my wife and I made it with an hour to spare. It was tough but I made it through! 

We’re doing a strength building program called Boring But Big. It’s a solid program solely based on strength building, so I make sure to get some isolation supersets after the heavy lifting.

Today’s Workout:

Barbell Incline Bench
*Superset each setpull-ups and 1 minute run @75-85%

Narrow Grip Barbell Incline Bench

Lauren and I worked down to the last minute. Now it’s time to do some yoga.

Live life like a champion! #iambft
