    The overloaded eccentric DB presses sound very intriguing. I saw the last video of them. With 2 workouts of them what is your impression of them thus far?

    My 16 year old sister asked me what can she do for her abs of course. For a first timer she performed front squats like a champ. Clean gripped it right on the shelf and everything.
