If you’re a trainer or coach, you have to write programs.
And trust me – there are tons of great resources out there to help you. I’m preferential to my Physical Preparation 101 product, but again, I’m biased…
But here’s the thing – the X’s and O’s are all fine and dandy, but sometimes you want specifics.
Or nitty-gritty details.
And sometimes, you just want strategies to help you get in the right mindset to write an awesome training program!
So this show is all about programming – I talk successes, failures, and want I do to hedge my bets and make sure each and every program I write is legit.
Let’s do this!
Here’s a step-by-step overview of what I cover in this show:

9 – Remember that it’s all GPP
10 – Use “Off-Days” to Earn Your Training
11 – Meet Them Where They Are with Regards to Exercise Selection
12 – Underwhelm them Early
13 – Don’t Be Afraid to Train In-Season
14 – The “Introductory” Week vs. The Deload Week
15 – Flip the Sets and Reps on the Accumulation Block
16 – Make it a Goal to be a Lazy Coach
17 – What are they prepared for?
18 – Don’t Build without Maintaining
