Jeff and Eric discuss what they have had to do to continue to improve their physiques as advanced athletes. The coaches also share strategies other advanced athletes can use to continue making progress as well.
What percentage of gains do the coaches feel like a person reaches after 5 years of lifting? What did Eric do between his last bodybuilding season and the one he is currently in to improve his delts? How much more progress does Eric think he can make now that he’s 40? How did Jeff make the biggest changes in his physique as an advanced athlete? Why is the *majority* of Eric’s training at this point done on machines? Does your testosterone really start decreasing in your 30s? What can you do to keep your testosterone from going down?
