Ah January – a time of renewal, a time of optimism, the start of a new periodization cycle… and it includes that cursed Contra DB Row.

And I know… doesn’t look that bad.

Only 8 reps… not bad.

Then you actually do it!

How the heck does a ROW make your glutes light up like a Christmas tree – – WHAAAAT is going on?

For those of you who have been in the gym already this week, you know what I am talking about.

(we won’t talk about the split squats… they are a different matter altogether ūüėĀ)

For those of you who have not yet had the pleasure – maybe you want to practice at home so you can be prepared.

Here’s what we are up to #sorrynotsorry

Okay – now that we have that out of the way… hobble your way back to your regular day!

Go get it!
