Legs, Chest, Triceps (no mo’ snow)

What an incredible weekend! It’s all relative, I know, as a weekend like this one would be considered almost cold in summer, but considering there was “no mo’ snow” on the ground from the last snowfall 4 days ago, mid-60s and sunny was pretty darn nice. The only bad thing is that the hot and humid summer is that much closer, and so is yard duty. LOL…

Summary: We actually spent most of the weekend outside, got plenty of springtime yard prep done, and lots of play time with the boy. A long-sleeve shirt was bordeline uncomfortable, and lots of people were out in shorts. Spring is in the air! That means that mornings are still cool (which I love for training) and fresh air is abundant, so the motivation is kicking into ultra high gear. Great workout because of it, and I’ve felt that legs are getting a good workout, but not quite enough workload, so I bumped up the volume a bit, and both quads and hams were on fire as a result. Chest was on swole patrol, too. Amazing what decent weather can do for your overall sense of well being. That’s the beauty of having real seasons, and a huge part of the reason we relocated. Love it!
