  1. Jon, I have a quick question for you:

    What is your thought process behind the Monkey Wrench workouts? Is it a good thing to switch up the work outs during the 8 week course every once in a while?

    I really like the Monkey Wrenches, just wanted to get your thoughts on how they impact the training. Keep up the good work!!!

  2. thanks chris for your question:) the monkey wrenches are put in to shake things up once in a while, so slightly tweak the workout to put a slight twist on workout and that gives folks a slight break during the middle of the cycle which i feel is cool to do for alot of folks. you do not have to do them if you are hitting your goals each week and want to continue htting that same workout and improving though. thanks for your support my friend and tell me how it's going okay!

  3. Jon that makes a ton of sense! Thanks a ton for clarifying. I really enjoyed the wrenches! This has been my favorite cycle of yours (I started following last June) and they keep getting better. I appreciate everything you do!
