#141 - How you need to train to achieve a toned and athletic body with Craig McDonald
Listen now
Description
In this episode, I’m joined by my co-founder and co-host Craig. I was sick for a week, so I sounded a bit nasally in this episode 🤣 The majority of the women I speak to say "Kitty I want a toned and athletic body". There's so much confusion out there around how you should be training to achieve this. So we thought we'd jump on and chat about what it actually takes when it comes to training to change your body. So, in this episode, Craig and I chat about: ➡️Why proper execution is so important and should be your first focus ➡️Why pushing sets to 1-3 reps of concentric muscular failure is important if you want your body to change ➡️Training intensity ➡️The importance of recording your sets ➡️How coaching can help you speed up your results And more!
