If you’ve ever wondered where to even begin when thinking about designing a program this episode is a great starting point. Admittedly most of the discussion is around programming for CrossFit, but some of the principles we discuss will still apply to those seeking other types of strength training program design.
We get asked all the time to do an introduction to programming concepts, so here you have it! But by no means is this an end all be all discussion on programming, this is just meant to get the party started!
If you dig this and want to know more let us know and we can delve deeper in future episodes.
