Core Training for Lifters

The day is near. Batman versus Superman. To be honest, despite Christian Bale being irreplaceable as Batman (sorry, Ben), I’m stoked for the New Batman Versus Superman Movie. On one hand, you have a human superhero. Albeit, he has more gadgets than McGeyver, wicked fighting skills, and an other-worldly pain tolerance, he’s still human. His foe is a god. Superman… Keep Reading
