Hello everyone! There is a new magazine on the block and they aim to appeal to women who are not afraid to lift weights—STRONG fitness magazine! I have a quick recap of their first issue but let me say that the pages and layouts are beautiful. Really looking forward to what they have to say in the future!
“Fine Tune Your Overhead Squat”
This is something I could really use help with and I love the description here from trainer Alex Possamai of CrossFit Bolton Mississauga, Ontario. (This is a Canadian publication, by the way!)
