Free vs. Premium Strength – 80/20 Endurance

Strength Training Plan Options

80/20 Endurance offers two types of strength training plan: Free* and Premium. Both types are designed to plug right into and supplement our 80/20 Endurance plans, or any endurance plan of similar duration. Just load the strength plan onto your calendar using the same start date as your primary plan.

For support on your Premium plan see Understanding Your Premium 80/20 Strength Training Plan. For support on your Free plug-in see Understanding Your Free Strength Training Plug-in. The basic difference between the free plugins and premium plans is that the free plug-ins are free and the premium plans are better. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the differences:
