ddb
Who knew something so beautiful could be created with just your heartbeat? DDB Group Hong Kong just launched a new jewelry line that they say is a "personalized gift that is literally from the heart." Appropriately named, "Crafted by My Heart," the agency transforms the rhythm of your heartbeat into a ring. Teaming up with Tribal Worldwide Singapore, the ring is created with an iOS app that records your pulse.

Intro: The Exercise The Dimel Deadlift is a great exercise I’ve been using since a while among the many deadlifts variations, I saw this exercise on a video by Dave Tate, I want to him here as he’s always a great source of inspiration and education!
