Day 46:Hamstrings, Lower Back and Upper Abs

There’s no way of getting around it today, I’m tired! Fatigue has set in and it would have been very easy for me to justify extra hours in bed. The difference is that I didn’t do that, because my end goal means so much to me that nothing is going to convince me to take things easy now. You’re going to be faced with the same predicament from time to time as well; always think about the end result if you’re ever contemplating quitting.

We’ve got just 2 workouts to crush this week before entering the final stretch of this extreme transformation, so let’s make it really count today. Don’t take your foot off the gas now!
