Thought i would talk about some of the workout programs i have tried over the last 1-2 years. Those programs are not strictly workout related as most have nutrion component, but i have not used any of them. I prefer doing my own thing nutrition wise. I personally like workout programs a lot because they provide a plan, the workouts, and someone to shout at me for the duration of the workout. I do not only follow one program as i like to mic and match and see what suits my day. Other ones i did not talk about are the BodyRockTV and the 30 day shred.
