    Great Program

    Just wrapped it up today and I got great results. For reference, I completed Phase 1 directly before starting this program. I was able to progressively overload my lifts in the exact way the plan wanted me to while also enjoying benefiting from the longer aerobic capacity efforts. I did 100% of the aerobic work running and did not have any issues doing so. The addition of one quality run a week (tempo run in this case) was a welcome addition, and my pace during these runs was progressively faster as the weeks went by. Aesthetically I definitely had some muscle growth. Once a week I threw in some extra bicep and tricep work and did not have any problems with the bit of additional volume. I feel well prepared heading into Phase 3!
