Nutrition is supportive. If your goal is to build-muscle and get stronger, it doesn’t matter how “perfect” your nutrition is, or how much protein you eat, your potential for muscle-growth will be limited. A properly designed training program is essential.
In today’s episode, Eric, Andrea and Jeff discuss all of the variables which play a role in program design. Beyond just covering the basics of volume, intensity and frequency, the group also touch on the different factors which come into play when designing a program for someone in the real-world. These factors include: psychology, injury, equipment availability, schedule, preferences and more.
For those strength and physique athletes who program for themselves, and for coaches who work with this niche of athletes, this episode will be especially useful. Join us this week to learn many different valuable tools and strategies you can use in the art of programming.
