    Nice “legs”workout yesterday! I thought it looked shorter than before (which got me out of bed at 5 🙂 ) but then I hit those 5 sets of squats lol! Anyone else have trouble walking today? Loving this! Just need to get a long run in since I have a race coming up in May. I need to skip one of the workouts. Can u possiby recommend which one so I don’t lose out on too much muscle building? Thx

      Ha! Glad you liked it! Yep those squats are tough. If you have to skip one, I’d just leave out the body part that is your strongest. I always try and train my weak points the most often (for me its legs).
