Workout of the Day: Wednesday, 8.28.13
An epic post on everything you need to know about the single leg deadlift (or, in the case of the article, the “single leg rdl”). Seriously, read this – it’s so good.
“Class is an aura of confidence that is being sure without being cocky. Class has nothing to do with money. Class never runs scared. It is self-discipline and self-knowledge. It’s the sure-footedness that comes with having proved you can meet life. ”
― Ann Landers
