I skipped training training legs last week since my knees have been feeling a little funny lately. They've been cracking a lot and at times a little soar, both of which may be the result of the Barbell Lunges I've been doing.

I had to do a short leg workout on Saturday, since my gym closed at 7:00 PM instead of 8:00 PM. For some reason, they have different hours in December than they do the rest of the year.

I trained legs a day early this week, since my wife is graduating from grad school today.
