Metabolic Baby...

So I wake up this morning - sore all over. My hips, thighs, my shoulders...even my lower back. Just really stiff. Don't know if this was from volleyball the other day or from sitting on my butt on uncomfortable seats during jury duty. Didn't do much stretching at jury duty...just sitting on my butt reading all day twiddling my thumbs and sipping on some coffee.

Anyway, so I was sore as hell getting up so I did some yoga this morning for a good 15 minutes and really felt alot better afterwards.

This afternoon, didn't feel strong enough to get a good quality strength workout in so I went metabolic today. Still did Cosgrove's Workout C of the Barbell complex routine, the 200 rep Tarheel Med ball workout and some Heavy Bag/BW squat Tabatas. Topped it off with more stretching afterwards.
