Any purchased the Juggernaut e-book? Just wondering if you considered it worthy of your $20.

I know a few who have run the program and loved it. I have not read the book. Too cheap I guess. Working through the Powerbuilding book right now.

I'm running Juggs right now and I am enjoying it a lot. The e-book is a must have if you are going to run the program. If you don't plan to run it, then it's probably not worth it.

Good info, it seems to be more of a manual than anything else. I forgot you were running this program, I will have to review your log.

Any reviews on the program itself? What have your results been like?

I'm only in my first time through it, so it's only been a short time. So far I really enjoy it. The conditioning is awesome because you end up doing a good bit of volume and higher reps. But I'm a big fan of high reps, so I'm finding it a lot more fun than 5/3/1. I am on the 5s weeks right now, so lower reps are coming. I think I'll find that I will fly past my old PRs some time during my second run-through.
