Dumbbell Unilateral Training Alternatives, Michael Rutherford
Dumbbell Unilateral Training Alternatives
Michael Rutherford  |  January 31 2008  |  General Training
If you are in the strength and conditioning game long enough you are going to encounter structural and muscular imbalances along the way.
