Mark, a good friend, decided to start the Farmer Gym training journey several months ago. First, he purchased the Farmer Gym Strength and Conditioning Manual, then he got the Farmer Gym Way. He and a few training buddies have been hammering out work ever since! Last night I received this message: "We still have a couple more weeks [to make it through book number 2, the Farmer Gym Way]. I can tell you my 5 sets of 3 are at or above my 1 RM from the first book." Mark's 3-rep weight has now surpassed his former 1-rep max! And it should be noted, he was already a strong dude, and he saw solid numbers after book number 1! That's doing work. Props buddy, and keep at it!
