11218228_10154119372482841_2433423911699452130_nThis weekend I did zero running or biking but I still managed to burn a ton of calories doing old fashioned hard work.  I spent the majority of the day Saturday trimming roughly 25 trees on my property.  The task is a true total body workout utilizing the upper and lower body in pull and push movements.  By the time I was done I was wiped out. On Sunday I followed up with a long weed whacking session just for fun.

I had good push day at the gym getting 240lbs up for the second consecutive week and barely 225lbs x 3 on the way back down.
