Week 2, day 1. Welcome to the second week of training, fellas. Great feedback in the comments and in the DM's from the first week. The more feedback I get about your guys' performance, the more I can start shoring up data to make the program better! Expect nutrition info coming soon.

I'm anticipating plenty of feedback, so leave a comment with how the workout felt, any problems you encountered, or any questions you have. EVERYBODY should be leaving a comment detailing their performance in each portion!
