2B) Yoga (to let the grip recover)
2C) DB Reverse Lunge

3A) DB Triceps Extension
3B) Yoga (to let triceps recover)

PS -

People always ask me, "Craig, what do you do for fun?"

My answer is that I simply love to meet interesting people.

And so at the end of every December I like to list all of the new and exciting people that I've met in-person over the past year.

So much gratitude for everyone on this list.

(Special thanks to Jason Ferruggia, Joe Polish, and Bedros Keuilian for making so many introductions.)

NOTE: This list is in relatively random order!
