Day 21 - Results

Uncategorized Jan 28, 2019

Ok, you've done well to make it this far. As you can tell it was a tough day of testing for me, but hopefully it will be worth it in 3 months time.

Now it's your turn to do some work!

I need you to help me out and write me a program to do for the month of March.

Remember, the BEST program will be selected and I will personally do this program and the person whose program is chosen as the best will win a FREE MAT LIVE course in 2019.

A few specifics that need to be thought about when creating the program:

1/ There needs to be at least two different days in the program that I can use to workout 4-5 times per week.

2/ My goals are to improve the results below, especially my aerobic fitness

3/ You need to have 1-2 paragraphs associated with the program why you included the exercises and what you're targeting with each program.

I can't wait to see what you have in store for me.

You can submit your program either in the comments below or by emailing me at ...
