  1. Wednesday, October 18: Sprints and circuits day. Did 9 circuits that started with 20 sec. sprints followed by circuits of mainly bodyweight stuff but also included some KB swings and Russian twists with a slam ball. Will get in a yoga video later on.
  2. Tuesday, October 17: Due to my meetings and what-not today I won't get to the gym so I did a quick metcon at home. 5 rounds, no rest: 5 burpees 10 push ups 20 squats (20 lb KB) 10 tricep dips I thought that it was going to be too easy but it was actually pretty hard. Finished up with some side planks, hollow holds, and glute bridges.

My mom is in town for the next few days for Canadian Thanksg
