This week is our October Instagram Q&A episode and as always we have a gamut of topics to cover. We detail exactly what we both eat in a day, the optimality of a full body versus body part split training for hypertrophy, the impact on stimulus to fatigue ratio for training near failure or to total failure, how to reduce cardio volume while maintaining the higher level of fitness achieved, and much more.
