A Note About Sending E-mails
I have been pleasantly flooded with questions about training and bodybuilding. However, I have to say that because of my time commitments with my clients and others my time is somewhat restricted. It would just be too time intensive for me to write programs for everyone that wrote me even though I appreciate the e-mails. So, I do promise to start listing some general programs that people can use. Below is an outline about how to ask questions to get the answers you are looking to receive.
