Daily "Selfie":


Kicking Mass & Taking Names Cut-off.  This was our summer volleyball shirt from last year.  Our team is made up of parishioners from our Catholic church, hence the Kicking "Mass" part. Red, High Top, Converse shoes I've had since before high school.

Back felt much better.  I did a 10 min back stretching video before the workout and it really helped.  I might work that in a few times a week now.  Bench press is still feeling really easy while squats are getting harder.  I am finished with Week 1 now and I feel that my muscles have adapted (very slightly) to the new volume and rep scheme.  Hopefully that will get better and better.
