TOP REVIEWS FROM HACKING EXERCISE FOR HEALTH. THE SURPRISING NEW SCIENCE OF FITNESS.
A recommended course for anyone who wants science-backed information presented in a very engaging and conversational format regarding exercise and health.
Es un curso bastante informativo y didáctico, sin embargo, me habría gustado profundizar en el ejercicio de fuerza y la importancia de la carga progresiva, etc
it was a highly informative and helpful in the session amd the professors have helped us understand the course so much well and in an easy format
Great Course, I really enjoyed this journey of four weeks, but still, I would like to have a suggestion regarding the food structure that I need to follow to achieve a maximum of my desired output.
