How To Make Your Own Training Program

I’m fed up of seeing these ready-made, copy-me programs that are sold to you on the basis that the guy who’s selling it looks in great shape… it’s a load of gumf and any half-decent fitness professional will tell you that! I get how the seller thinks it will work though. The majority of them […]
