        It’s like…a few leg swings, a bunch of pass throughs, some stick OHS, maybe a pushup or two… It’s what happens when you get to class late. 🙁

      2. Vanessa Champion

        No, the up roar was me being early and Ang being late hahaha

        And great job today heather on the bench press 🙂
