This was a bad workout… I spent my workday on my knees mostly wiring up a crawlspace so my back and knees weren’t feeling the greatest, couple that with the cold weather and I just couldn’t get loose or feel comfortable whatsoever.

It happens…

I never thought I would be that guy to tell the younger kids “wait until you hit my age”… when I was 20-25 I would be that kid in the gym talking to people my age now and they would tell me the same thing. I would look at them and scoff, well I am not scoffing now. Age hits you square in the face at times. After years of playing sports, doing strongman and generally getting abused doing it all, there are days when I feel like a truck hit me.

Unlike my youth, I know when to hold back and when to push it though.
