Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 7)

It wasn't a good day y'all.  I mean the workout was good.  Monte did what he was supposed to do but the morning started off rocky.  For one, I did not get a good night's sleep after going to bed after 11 pm because someone next to me was sawing logs.  I mean it woke me up in the middle of the night to the point I had to sleep with the pillow ...
