Our Choice for the Article of the Week
For many serious lifters and coaches a lot of time and effort go into well thought out programming. But sometimes we still don’t know why we do what we do – maybe it’s because we like the way a certain exercise feels, our favorite coach is doing it, or it just looks so unbelievably cool and makes you feel like King Kong. If you think you know exactly why you are performing every little aspect of your training you might be questioning yourself after this article. Dave gives us some serious insight into well thought out programming in this new article ‘Supplemental Strength’.
