I remember the first time I stepped into a gym. It was the summer before my freshman year of high school. I tagged along with my two older brothers who were prepping for football season by hitting the weights. I had no idea what I was doing.  What’s a lat pull down?  What am I […]

It appears we are sticking with the roller coaster theme for last week’s workouts.
