Friday 1/27/2023 Daily Gym: Upper Body Workout
Finish the week STRONG! I love Friday workouts. Such a great way to close out the week.
Corny saying but, "Don't let your weekend become your weak end." Make sure to be active over the weekend by going on a walk or doing some yoga, properly hydrate, and get in some healthy meals!
