I bought this course over a year ago thinking that I'd do some of the workouts on my days off of lifting but that turned out to be too intense.
Came back to this during the 2020 isolation period and it is still really intense, but a really awesome workout and challenge. Really excited to follow through the program and see what kind of strength gains that I can make outside of lifting. Thank you Patrick for these creative movement practices.
