USPlabs Iron Day – Power Speed Training for Athletic Supremacy
Through the sixty 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.
After much consideration, this week’s episode of the USPlabs Iron Day is, "Power and Speed Training for Athletes"
Due to improved technology we are able to communicate with readers and quickly respond to their needs via Twitter and Facebook. With this in mind each Friday we now offer the “USPlabs Iron Day” a free workout, by reader request and followed up with a full supplement protocol on Facebook. Cast you vote on Twitter (through either direct message or the “@” function) or Facebook ofnext weeks workout choice.
