Re: Need some advice on my routine

oh no we've confused the guy now! Medic, Ironman is a big lad and certainly knows his onions, but his program is an advanced, bodybuilding program, whereas you just want something to get you strong and athletic. I would just do WS4SB, and stop reading this thread in case it makes your head explode!...

Is there not a dynamic lower day?
No, the websie advises against it if you are used to to it.


Also, as a side-not I have update the schedule to include the cardio plan but is that HIIT sufficient?

Re: Need some advice on my routine
