Welcome back to the 3DMJ Podcast! Today’s episode marks the beginning of season 11 and what better way to kick off a new season than with a Q&A session.
In this episode, Andrea, Jeff, and Alberto answer five questions sourced directly from the 3DMJ community. Topics include: the required number of training sessions per week to make progress, thoughts on different methods of manipulating volume, how often the coaches hit new personal records in the gym, rationale for having an increased protein intake when gaining, potential benefits to including refeeds in a maintenance phase, and the appropriate rate of increasing calories in the off-season.
The coaches take each of these five topics, answer the initial question, then expand on the original question and examine it from multiple points of view. We are excited to be back for another season and think you’ll find today’s Q&A session well worth the wait. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the episode!
