Bodyweight Exercises You’d Be Crazy To Ignore!

So I woke up this morning and stumbled into the kitchen to flip the switch on the coffee maker only to realize that I was stumbling simply because I was very sore. I mean I was more sore than usual. I’ve made it a point to include more rotational movement into my personal strength training program as of late, plus it didn’t hurt that I went through a pretty gruesome Muay Thai training session last night which was headed up by my good friend Jeff Perry who is a retired #6 world ranked Thai boxing champion.

Yep, that might have had something to do with it as well. I know what you are thinking. You must think I have the mindset of Gary Busey to do something like that; right? Well, not quite.

The only way you can understand it is if you practice it with purpose and consistency  and suddenly you’ll realize you will learn more and more about yourself and your abilities.
