Dave wrote a great blog post this week about his experience lifting with us. I really appreciate hearing about Barbell Strategy through Dave's eyes and in his own words. Unsolicited reviews like this mean a lot to me. You're hearing exactly what Dave thinks of us and how it's helped him. I especially like that he says all the same things that I say - you guys really are listening to me!
