This is probably one of the best videos I’ve seen that details the technique and durability of how to properly make use of the bench.  Ever since I’ve change my own faulty technique to Westside its makes a world of a difference.  You don’t want to simply move the bar, you want to push yourself […]

Stuff like this makes me want to work hard in the gym. With a BW of 88 lbs squatting more than double her BW, Naomi Kutin throws down and humbles that weight of 187. Its sad because I know people in my gym who weigh in nearly double of what she weighs and can’t even […]
