Q & A: Basic Workout and Nutrition Questions
I’m starting a new section of TheMuscleProgram called ‘Q & A’ which will consist of some of the questions I get from folks with my response. I hope to consistently post these as they come in. There’s no ‘wrong’ question and I appreciate all inquires, as all of you inspire me from the simple fact that you’re training hard and working towards a personal goal. This is exciting to me so I welcome all questions and will do my best to answer them.
Athar has some basic questions about training and nutrition below. Looks like he’s on the right track but just needs a few tweaks. Athar definitely seems determined and I believe he will reach his goals. Some of you may have the same types of questions and I hope you benefit from this Q & A session.
