Hope you are having a great weekend. I’m enjoying some rest and recovery after week 2 of my cut and new training program.
Btw, I’m already down 4 pounds, eating what I like and having the occasional beer now and then.
I know, I know, the law of diminishing returns will kick in shortly, but this is is a sweet phase of one’s diet, lol.
So anyways, back to business, our roundup:
