When I was growing up a “black & blue” just meant a bruise. It didn’t have any hidden meanings or subtle agendas; it was just a common phrase.

Sometimes when doing hard work or training you get bruised up (like catching your finger between two 45lb plates or dropping one on your foot)

You won’t die, but it gets your attention!

Anyway, we are open the day after Thanksgiving.

So, instead of following the herd to the stores and fighting for a parking spot on Friday, just go train instead.

If you are local, or on vacation, come to the Cave.

You can shop online later anyhow.

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?
