Course Notes: Week 3

Week 1 and 2 are always an uphill climb in conditioning as we get back into or start training consistently for the first time ever. It's challenging and pushes us outside our comfort zones, but if we continue to be consistent what we soon find is that our comfort zones expand and allow us to [...]
