Episode 34: Training methods and nutritional strategies in the lockdown

March 27, 2020

In todays episode I give my advice on how you can take advantage of other mechanisms of hypertrophy (adaption) in your training throughout the lock down and also how you can adapt your nutrition.

People have been so disheartened they can't get as much load on the bar, but many have failed to realise we can create change else where through metabolic stress and mechanical tension.

Many will also be unaware that they will need to adapt their nutrition based on energy output and recovery demands being down. I let you know exactly how I've adapted most of my clients nutrition to combat this.
