2 REP ALTERNATING SPLIT JERK

“How often do you work your weaker side??? 2 rep alternating split jerk ??? give your brain a workout too … the right hemisphere controls your body’s left side, and vice versa … The brain, which works on the ‘use it or lose it principle,’ has often been likened to a muscle — the more you use it, the better it gets … so get training that brain.”
