A Simple Way to Grow Legs

It’s that time of year where we’re enjoying a bit of “down time” at the facility, so it’s been nice to have the opportunity to stay on top of pumping out some articles for T-Nation lately.

I don’t know about you, but if I looked down at my program and saw that one of the exercises listed was called a 1-arm perpendicular landmine row I’d probably take said program, ball it up, dip it in cement, let it dry, and then find whoever wrote the program, wind-up and unleash a fastball… Read more
