Training Series 1 [The Three Big Variables]
Manage episode 344611116 series 3378586
You have three main variables to play with after creating your training split and selecting your favored exercises. Of course, you cannot max out all three, there must be a balance, but do you even know what they are?
In this 3rd episode of Andy's new training series, he talks about the three key variables you must balance: volume, intensity, and frequency. Your job is to create a plan, stick with it, monitor progress and results, and then adjust ONE thing at a time to see if you can make better progress.
Tune in to the episode to learn more about the three key areas and how you can balance them out properly to achieve your goals.
“You just need to make a plan. Decide what it is that you're gonna do and then run it. And then watch what happens. Track the results. Standardize everything else, your food, your water, your rest, your sleep, your intensity.”
– Andy Naylor
