Athlete Arms and Abs workout!

Like many of you, I have been watching the Olympics!  Last night the gymnasts and track stars were competing and my jaw was on the floor!  Incredibly strong bodies!  WOW!!  This sprinter from Bulgaria was especially impressive!

 SPRINTERS BODIES ARE WHERE IT’S AT!!

Granted, this is their life 100%.  They devote everything to their sport, nonetheless, IMPRESSIVE and OF COURSE attainable to some degree with PROPER NUTRITION AND CONSISTENCY TO EXERCISE!!  My favorite speech, plus NO EXCUSES!!

Today’s workout focused around  ARMS, ABS, and a few SPRINTS!  Seeing the sprinters bodies has inspired me to add SPEED WORK to my workouts.  I’ll post some great treadmill workouts SOON!!!  Here is today’s workout and I EVEN MADE A VIDEO AGAIN!  AMAZING!
