    Nutrition & Training Strategies for Holidays - The Muscle Mentors Podcast

    Nutrition & Training Strategies for Holidays - The Muscle Mentors Podcast

    Welcome to The Muscle Mentors Podcast!

    In this episode, Luke, Paul & James run through their takes on how we can approach training and nutrition whilst away on holiday.

    Want to come and learn with us in person in the UK? Make sure to add yourself to the waiting list for our upcoming events here: https://www.themusclementors.co.uk/sold-out-page

    During this podcast episode, we discussed how we can:

    - Utilise hand measurements instead of using food scales and accurately tracking calories.
    - Approach nutrition without any real tracking at all.
    - Take a more intuitive approach to our training and still make progress.
    - Perhaps not train at all when we're away on holiday...

    If you want to interact with us in person, make sure to get involved in our Education Portal and take part in the Live Education Sessions we hold on there; we hold them very Thursday at 7 PM (UK Time).

    A New Perspective on TRAINING VOLUME - The Muscle Mentors Podcast

    A New Perspective on TRAINING VOLUME - The Muscle Mentors Podcast

    Welcome to The Muscle Mentors Podcast!

    In this episode, Luke, Paul, James & Ross talk about all things Training Volume.

    You know, that age-old question: "How many sets per week/session are best for X muscle(s)?". That's what we're chatting about here.

    Want to come and learn with us in person in the UK? Make sure to add yourself to the waiting list for our upcoming events here: https://www.themusclementors.co.uk/sold-out-page

    We chatted about:

    - How training volume is classically defined and measured.
    - The issues with the majority of the research into this area.
    - A new and interesting way we could start viewing training volume going forwards - what Luke recently termed 'The New Paradigm for Training Volume' on our Education Portal.

    We recently delivered an in-depth webinar on this topic on our Education Portal. Make sure to get involved in these Live Education Sessions by joining the Portal here: www.themusclementors.co.uk. We hold them every Thursday at 7 PM (UK Time).

    Thanks for tuning in to listen. We hope you enjoy the episode and, as usual, take some value from the conversation.

HarrietButtigieg ,

Epic content!

I’d have given them a 5* review anyway based on genuine fitness & educational content but the Foodcast episode has been a total laugh. I’ve not belly-laughed so much in weeks and for lighthearted relief that’ll have you shouting out loud at your phone, this is the one.

Charlieee123654123654 ,

Very Informative.

Highly recommend this podcast for anybody interested in the science behind hypertrophy and exercise mechanics. Also a very entertaining podcast which is rare for long podcasts.

the prawn from ash ,

Max knowledge!!

Definitely some of if not the most knowledgable people in the industry, learn so many nitty gritty details in great depth every episode🙌🏼
