30 Days To A Better Man

Today I completed the 30 Days To be a Better Man challenge. It was quite an experience, luckily it was a Leap Year so I did Day 1 & 2 together.

To be honest, I feel a sense of honor, purpose and fulfillment.

In addition, they also tend to eat poorly afterwards, ostensibly undoing all of that hard work. If you would like to find a routine that works for you, here are five ways to recover quickly after exercise.
