There’s a lot more emphasis placed on torsion and coil and leverage. Basically, the women are being taught very much along the same lines as the men. You don’t have to consider strength as a factor so much. These girls are working out like fiends. It’s a trend that’s going to continue.

Wine to me is something that brings people together. В Wine does promote conversation and promote civility, but it’s also fascinating. В It’s the greatest subject to study.
