Maybe it's because it's friday or because the Cardinals are going to the World Series but I felt so good today I did a little extra..

JumpRope..30/30 for 5 Minutes
Push Ups...10 reps every minute for 5 minutes.
Squat Thrust..5 reps every minute.
Body Rows...3 reps every 5 minutes.

I could have done more Squat Thrusts but I started with low reps as I've never done them.
