Hold It v2

No workout yesterday since Dad offered to come down and help in the kitchen. He got my snow blower running and then we laid the new flooring. After taking the previous two days to remove the old flooring, I’m beat after three days of basically sitting and kneeling on the floor.

My triceps are really sore again, but this time from the bench and triceps work we did on Friday. My shoulders and chest feel it a bit as well.
