First of all, I did the program, I didn’t just read about it.

31 workouts in 31 days was tough, but well worth the effort and time.

Jedd knows how to write good, solid training programs.

My main “take aways” from this were–

  • I could handle a lot more volume than I previously thought I could
  • The same goes for frequency of training
  • My weak spots & previous injuries were addressed successfully
  • I could  gain muscle and strength in a shorter period of time than I thought possible
  • Recovery went better than expected with back-to-back training days
  • All the results were measureable and observable

I would highly recommend this program if you want to put on some muscle and get stronger. Who wouldn’t want that?
