Hey Greg,

I don't have a GHD yet, so are situps on a very step slant board the best substitute? If not what should I do. Thanks!
Greg Everett 2010-01-24
Andrew -Try to find something round that you can lie over (like a swiss ball or the like) and anchor your feet - that will be the closest thing. Otherwise, a slant board will be ok.

Whoo for Jocelyn's 120 BS! an 11kg PR!

Andreas from Sweden 2010-01-24
Greg, bet you've got this question a bunch of times before. But I'm not sure were to look for the answer. Do you have a onlineprogram for oly lifting only? Thank you anyway.
Andreas from Sweden 2010-01-24
Nevermind. Guess I will buy your book. Do you ship to Europe?

I'm going to start this program tomorrow. Please explain the A1 and A2 and the 2020?
Collin 2010-01-24
Paul, click on the "info" link above the current day's workout. It will clear up any uncertainty you may have as to programming lingo and conventions.

Hey Greg, I have my first Oly meet coming up in two weeks. Can you point me towards the pre-comp programming you'd recommend? Thanks.
Jocelyn 2010-01-25
Thanks for making me better coach Aimee:)
Greg Everett 2010-01-25

Greg Everett 2010-01-25
