Happy Renew Year: Sweat Equity
Broken Resolution #3 – Get in shape.
Your biceps are burning. Your traps are tortured and those hard working gluts and quads are just about to bottom out.
And that’s just from getting up off the couch.
Looks like you can’t afford to weight any more to jumpstart your exercise routine. But last time you joined that less-than-exciting workout club your wallet was the only thing that got slim and trim.
