The Importance Of Proper Program Design A.K.A “Why Your Workouts Sucks!”


This vid is a general commentary on the macro reasons people fail to make progress in the gym.

    Very interesting topic, Will. There are some people at my gym that I've seen on a pretty regular basis over the last couple of years lifting weights, but they still look kind of flabby and don't seem to have developed much lean muscle mass. Your video addresses the types of mistakes they are most likely making in their workouts.
