Alberto, Brad, and Brian discuss the things they think an athlete needs to know and have done before they do their first prep.
Why is it important to have clarity on your motives and goals before you begin prep? What do the coaches like to educate their athletes on before they begin and as they go through prep? Should you expect prep to suck the whole time? Why is it important to let your loved ones know that you’re prepping? What should you do when you don’t have access to the foods you normally eat? How should you go about eating homemade food prepared by others when you’re prepping? Is it okay to eat food prepared by others and drink alcohol during prep?
The answers to these questions and many more are covered in this episode.
