Dr. Brian Cunningham Presentation


P.S. A few people have asked me about the workout rotation. I am following the same pattern as Stu and Mary: Day 1 - Kick/Pull, Day 2 - IM, Day 3 - Sprint, Day 4 - Distance. Saturdays have been reserved for stroke (non free) workouts. Holidays are typically going to be sprint or holiday specific workouts. If you have questions about the workout rotation, feel free to reach out to me.
