This research looks at block periodization and weekly undulating periodization. Find out which one won the head to head battling in this study and showed better strength, muscle growth, and fat loss.
And finally in our coaches corner, I have on SGX Coach and RD Anne L'Heureux with Spartan SGX BFD. Coach Anne has been killing her races this year and shares some of her new training and nutrition strategies.
