Every Tuesday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 mins (or less!).
This week’s workout comes from Patrick Stoddard, a USAT-certified coach from the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. He’s used this workout during the off-season or build phase, or simply as a quick rainy day or time-constrained solution.
