Today was a surprisingly good workout with some good numbers (for me, not the internet)! Becoming the Man of Steel starts with the buns, that’s what my fortune cookie said 6 years ago. Here’s how it went if you are into this kind of stuff:

That was about 90 minutes. All the stretching keeps my lower back and hamhocks from twinging. I wasn’t even close to this stuff until July when I started doing this working up, working out, then working down thing. Was like some kind of Saitama unlock for me.

Im a 29 year old, 5 foot 11 inch African American male that weighs 230 lbs by the way. I’m just really happy right now because I feel all ready to take a nap and eat some animals and stuff.
