Legs & Abs & Legs & Abs & …

Conditions:  72 deg, 94% humidity … almost felt cool

The rule of thumb is that if a planned workout looks good on paper, it will generally be harder than it looks.  YHC wanted a focus on legs after Monday’s upper body beatdown, but also didn’t want to burn the PAX completely out in the first 5 minutes.  Ab exercises were included to give the legs a breather, and in hindsight, this workout ended up being easier than YHC had intended on paper.  All were still sweating and breathing hard, but the legs weren’t screaming like planned.  There may be some soreness tomorrow, but for future repeats of this workout, just focus on the legs.  Lesson Learned.
