In this weeks episode, Joe reveals the thought-process that goes into each and every program he designs…
For the first time ever, he shares his “Top 6 Principles of Writing an Effective Program“. Hearing [and learning] these principles will give you a much better understanding as to what goes on “inside Joe’s head” and why DeFranco’s Gym has produced such amazing results for such a long period of time. After listening to this episode, you too will be able to achieve the same results that Joe and his athletes have been achieving for almost two decades!
00:01:35 – Joe explains why he’s “pre-occupied” during the start of the show….this leads into a hilarious [true] gym story that involves a 20-year-old Joe D, blood, exploding middle fingers and George DeFranco 🙂 . WTF?!?
