Default Get Strong, Get Fast, Get Vertical! by Christian Thibaudeau

Hi everybody,

i listened to 0311 and decided to read up on another strength training coach called "Christian Thibaudeau" (CT).

yes, his work is amazing....

infact, i have saved each and every routine of his. unfortunately, i cannot attach it here because the file size (zipped) is over 17 mb.... but, if anyone out here is recently interested in saving a lot of their time browsing the articles, pm me and i'll e-mail the files to you...

but, i recently read this article of his and i really liked it...

i have attached tried to attach a deatiled doccument containing the program but it exceeded the file limit again...! once again, if you want the entire program with images, his personal bit, etc... you can always pm me for it..
