Monthly Training Review
This Month in Training - October
Training in October
The monthly breakdown is an overview of how your training is balanced. By classifying movements into categories we can identify the areas we would like to focus on in our next training cycle, and/or any deficits in our training we need to account for in our next training session.
This is essentially how I make sure your training has a complete approach so we aren't reinforcing or exacerbating any unwanted imbalances.

You have had a stellar month with training in October! You have managed to hit all of your training sessions with me, as well as make time during your week for home workouts and the occasional golf or tennis session.
You have also managed to change certain aspects of your eating which have yielded positive results when combined with your training regimen.
My hat is off to you this month. Well done!
Our training will continue to follow a linear progression model where we make slight modifications to different training variables to ensure we are making progress from week to week. Training variables include items such as load, sets, reps, range of motion, time under tension, etc.
We have been making excellent progress thus far, so there isn't much I would like to change in the coming month. If there is nothing to fix, then there is nothing to change 🙂

All About Carb Cycling
We have implemented a form of carb-cycling as a modification to the way you eat. This article gives a pretty overview of this method.
Sweet potatoes vs. potatoes: Which are really healthier?
Sweet potatoes make a regular appearance in your weekly eating routine, and while you have never really questioned this before, I thought you might find it interesting.
