What I Did on My Week Off

Most of us will treat a week off from the gym as just that: a week away, usually indulging in some bad food, and giving our joints, tendons, and ligaments a break. I have a quote I tell almost every client: “Don’t schedule time off. Life will do it for you.” In other words, life […]
