More Warm Up stuff
From Defranco's Super Strength DVD.
I've really got to say that the warm up stuff is good on this. I am not real sure about the rest of it, since I haven't viewed it all yet, but the ME work I saw was sloppy in execution.
I am also watching the Parisi warm up DVD, and the Parisi is very similar to Defranco's. Defranco worked for Parisi for a long time.
