I will start the programs at a beginning level, and (obviously) encourage people who are just starting out, to begin their weight training with this month's workout. Each month, I will build upon the foundation laid from the prior month, so that by the end of the year you will have a towering physique built one step at a time. For more advanced trainers, the first few months will likely not be challenging enough, but regardless, I urge each of you to read through the programs, so that if you have friends who don't know where to start, you can send them here.
Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither are championship physiques. You must have diligence, persistence, consistency, and faith in this program in order for it to work. If you are a beginner, have faith that this is the right program for you. Also, keep in mind that these programs are designed with several principles in mind, with one that I call "What have you done for me lately" at the top of the list. Each month, you will be giving your body a different stimulus that will not allow your body to plateau.
