How to Get Jacked – Episode 314

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

In this Q&A episode I cover exactly what you need to know in order to get jacked.

Everything from frequency to volume to sets, reps, intensity and more. 

Of course, I think everyone should train like an athlete and in a way that leaves you “always ready.”

So I cover what you need to do to ensure that you stay explosive and athletic as you get older.
