Book Review:

I just finished Kris Gethin’s Bio: The Transformer and found it to be a really interesting read. Since he’s one of the many trainers I follow for the workout, supplementation, nutrition, and overall weightlifting advice, the book was especially important to me. I really enjoyed learning about Kris’ background and where he grew up. A really great book if you’re into this kind of thing.

Well, that’s it for this week’s Monday Motivation. I hope all of you have a great week! I’m headed to the gym for weights and cardio 2 of today’s workout routine.

Until next time…
