I'm not gonna lie - this morning's workout wrecked me.  Drained me. Sucked the life out of me.  Put a fork in me, I'm done. 
We combined squats with bench presses today to make up for my skipped workout on Monday.  That combination alone is enough to zap all of my energy for the day.  Couple that with the fact I went to bed late, yet again, and you have a recipe for complete exhaustion. In his defense, Scott warned me not to max out my reps today and preserve my energy instead, which only made me more determined to go for the max.  Can't tell me nothing. 

Moral of the story:  I'm not cooking tonight.
