Requesting Your Expertise on My Program

It appears you’re not going to get a reply. I would guess it’s because it doesn’t coincide with CT’s training philosophy.
If you’ve had good luck with this type of training, there’s really no reason to ask someone’s opinion, I guess. Just keep on keeping on.
Good luck.
