Questions for Gymchat 211 - Training Approaches (Roundtable)

What, When and How.


Coming Up : In a couple of weeks (Sep 4th to be exact) we'll be holding the first of the Gymchat Roundtables. A group discussion featuring a number of fitness professionals and competitive athletes.

The topic will be 'Training Approaches' - why everyone does what they do, when and how. Love it.


Details shortly, but a quick invitation in the meantime : are there any specific questions you'd like everyone to address, or areas you'd like them to talk about? Just leave a comment or two on the Google Doc for this particular discussion. Cheers.
