USPlabs Iron Day – Complex Training for Strength and Fitness
Through the fifty-five previous editions of the “USPlabs Iron Day” we have been able to provide our readers a broad array of training regimes to reflect their goals. Whether your interest lay in strength and bodybuilding pursuits, weight loss, needs of the military and law enforcement community or athletics, these training guides can serve as a tremendous blueprint towards goal achievement.
This effort came about due to radically improved technology that allows us to communicate with readers to which we are ability to quickly respond to their needs. With an open line of communication via Twitter, Google+ and Facebook we have been able to provide up-to-date information on efficient exercise approaches and ensure all readers utilise USPlabs products to their utmost.
Tammy Bravomalo discusses her supplement stack.
This commitment to providing information has taken a tremendous leap forward with the very recent release of the USPlabs | Ultra Premium Supplements educational library which houses considerable videos on proper exercise technique and suitable for virtually every method of training. As we push forward with the USPlabs Iron Day we will be making great use of these videos and I invite you to share with your friends.
As per our original intent of the USPlabs Iron Day, each Friday we will provide a daily training program (per reader choice), with a follow up supplement protocol on Facebook. Readers would cast their vote via Twitter (through either direct message or the “@” function) or Facebook and decide the topic.
After much consideration and with many athletes beginning to “turn up their spring training”, the winning entry for this week’s episode of the USPlabs Iron Day is:
