Every now and again there is a workout that I like to call  “one for the books”, meaning this is a workout to remember.  It is hard while you do  it, you have to push hard and dig deep to get through it.  And tomorrow you will feel it! It’s that kind off  workout whenever you come across it you will remember where you did it, who was with you and even the clothes you had on.

Did I mention how hungry you will be all day long after this workout.  Make sure to eat only healthy food and drink lots of water.
