Re: League of Legends

Though I'd totally take the mockery to play on a team based on picking only Yordle champs.


*hits up Wiki*

Teemo
Kennen

Ziggs

Veigar
Poppy

Not too bad of a spread. Weakest point is probably Poppy as Jung/Ganker but they'd all do well in lane and team fights.

Afaik Rip is all for cardio, provided it doesn't interfere with your recovery/workout. He is certainly against cardio as a means for fat loss (when coupled with diet) because it means minimal muscle gains which counters the purpose of his program. That said, train to your goals.
