  • Barbell + Resistance Band Workout for the Booty and the Whole Body!

    { 2 comments }

    I've got a barbell and resistance band workout for you today that's no joke. I put this workout together for myself yesterday at the gym and I am feeling it something serious today.

    Hello and a big welcome to the weekend! Unfortunately, it's FREEZING and all I want to do is stay bundled up, inside and warm. The wind is bone-chilling.
