The key to seeing strength gains is consistency over the next 3 months. All three days will be different, and you will see the workouts change as we progress through the 3 months. The default days will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You can do it any three (or two) days of the week, just not two days in a row. The workouts will still open no matter what day it is. For example, if you are working out on a Tuesday, you can still click on Monday’s workout. If you want to make your calendar custom to you, it is very easy to login on the desktop and move it.
The workouts will be varied enough that you will not be bored, but you will also see consistency so can get into a routine and challenge your body to adapt and get stronger.
