OMG I loved it. OMG i hated it. I love to push thru the pain but my lungs don't seem to think the same way. Had to take an extra 20 sec between rounds to catch my breath. Always had problems with my lung capacity. Had an small long operation (some time ago) and yea half a life of bad habits.

@lex7019 This is a routine you love to hate! Haha. It's OK if you needed a bit of extra time between rounds, just work at your own pace and try to cut down the rest periods each week - even if it's only by a few seconds.

Why man. Why did you create this monstrosity?  I thought 7 weeks of month 1 would've prepared us for month 2. Nope. This literally kicked our butts. Normally we finish with back squats and deadlifts lifts. We barely had any steam left for dead lifts. Good Lord the cardio from jump squats and burpees ruined us. I can't WAIT to see how we progress through this butt kicker. Thanks Scott. Team Patagonia from Reno.

@jamiem hahaha that is EXACTLY what I like to hear!! That's how you should be feeling after this routine if you do it right, great job Team Patagonia, keep it up!!

Hey Scott, I have a few questions. I play soccer and I'm relatively weak and but pretty fast, so I'm trying to strengthen myself. Does this leg program increase your vertical and can it increase the power in your kicks? And does it make me slower, because my speed is a huge advantage for me. Thanks!

Scott_Herman  Edit  Delete  Close

If I were you I would stick to the PPL program and just cut it down to training 3 times a week and focusing on your speed / running on the other days.  So for example:

Monday: Push

Tuesday: Speed / Running

Wednesday: Pull

Thursday: Speed / Running

Friday: Legs

Saturday: Speed / Running

Sunday: Rest

Man, this HARD!!!!!

Having passed month 1 doesn't mean that you are gonna be OK in month 2 at all.

@jfsr Well I couldn't make the routines easier as you move through the program.. that defeats the whole purpose of progression ๐Ÿ˜

Hi Scott, What if I have a bigger under wasit and i dont really want it to get any bigger. 

And i've heard that by doing squads You acctully can get a bigger but/underwaist.

Scott_Herman  Edit  Delete  Close

Well, the only thing that is going to increase waist size is your bodyfat %.  As long as you keep that in check you will be ok! ๐Ÿ˜
