Background: This workout is dedicated to US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG), who served the Supreme Court of the United States from 1993 until her death on September 18, 2020, from pancreatic cancer complications.

She was nominated by President Bill Clinton and was generally viewed as a moderate judge who was a consensus builder at the time of her nomination. She eventually became part of the liberal wing of the Court as the Court shifted to the right over time. Ginsburg was the second woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, after Sandra Day O’Connor, and was the first Jewish woman to serve on the Court.

This workout was created by Coach Jk McLeod (@coachjk_themusclefeed).

The rep scheme signifies:
– 19-60 reps for the year 1960 when RBG was turned down for a clerkship with Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter on basis of gender
– 19-93 reps for the year 1993 when RBG was appointed to the United States Supreme Court
-20-20 reps for the year 2020 when she passed away.
