FRI: Muscle-Themed PSC Days
You might have noticed in the Programming Prep from earlier this week the inclusion of a muscle-focused PSC day each week, similar to before when it was called “structure”. The only improvement we decided to make to those days, aside from the re-brand, is that each BLOCK we will focus on two […]
FRI: Muscle-Themed PSC Days
THUR: Post Workout Nutrition
People follow many different forms of nutrition protocol. Some it based around taste, some body composition goals, some of it ethics.

WED: Why Chronic Dieting Makes You Fat
Step one, you decide that you want to lose a little bit of weight. You research different diets and decide to follow one that creates caloric restriction of, say, 500 calories per day. You repeat this daily for a few weeks and you lose some weight.
However, here is […]
TUES: Why is Strength a Consistent End of Cycle Measurement?
Weak bodies don’t change.
Let me just plainly state that up front in case you only skim. If your body is physically weak, it will not change it’s ability, composition, or its health. Period.

Body’s that […]
