Gymchat 248 - Establishing Standards for Strength & Progressions (Brian Tabor)

How you you begin? How do you progress?


When you begin strength training, what sorts of things should you assess? As you become stronger, how do you go about progressing things - the types of lifts you do, and the weights you expect to shift?

This week we're talking about these key areas, from both the clients' and trainers' points of view. Tackling these are Personal Trainers (and Strength Athletes) Brian Tabor and Josh Hewett. Fantastic.


NB : We'd love to hear your questions and comments. If there's a particular subject you'd like Brian and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat and leave a comment or jump in the Hangout and ask them directly.

And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
