You'll learn why protein & simple sugars are important post-workout. And consider his many bootcamp offerings, one at McDaniels park in McFarland.

Great to read about your rationale for bootcamp intervals, and Thanks for the link to the videos on drills. I'll use some of them in my next bootcamp, like Mustang Kicks -- they look fun! Cheers, -Sunny

Sunny, you're welcome! Mustang kicks are good, we did those when I was on the crew team at UW-Madison. Powerful move!

Dustin, you're welcome! I've heard many good things about your camps.
