Two very random, different topics for today: Exercise intensity: How hard do you really need to work??

Over the 8 day hump/ nutrition podcast rec

I'm happy to report that I am still tracking my macros. Yesterday was Day 8. "Day 8" (or thereabouts) tends to be my kryptonite. Usually, any time I try to implement a change, or do a "program" (like when I tried repeatedly to do the #75Hard program...), I go forth strong for...about 8 days. I… Continue reading Over the 8 day hump/ nutrition podcast rec
