What's up, Achievers?! We received some awesome questions today that should last us through next week, so if we didn't answer yours today look out for it in the next couple episodes! We first talk about whether or not to do total body workouts or body part split workouts (5:57). We then discuss how to go about incorporating single leg training into your workouts (8:26). Lastly, we cover our thoughts on how to stay motivated to train while coaching (or any sort of work, really) 40+ hour work weeks! We've had a lot of personal struggles and successes with this one so hopefully some of it helps you all out! The most important thing is to focus on consistency over intensity! (14:17). We hope you enjoyed this episode! If you did, we'd love you forever if you left a rating and review on iTunes - it seriously helps us out a lot!
