Becoming Ronin Podcast – #25 – The Story of Eli, Man Maker vs. Widow Maker, Training for ROM

In today’s episode Smitty and OB give a couple of important updates, then dive straight into three listener questions:

Question 1. The first question sparks some hilarious stories about a legendary monster that Smitty and OB used to train with – along with some sessions that didn’t end well.
Question 2: This rolls right into the guys finally unveiling two iconic challenges known as the Man Maker and Widow Maker.
Question 3: They finish with a hotly debated topic, which is; should you always train for FULL ROM?
