This is a great time to be a part of the evolving strength training industry. Our knowledge about how to maximize strength gains under ideal programming conditions continues to grow and influence how we program. In this course, we explore how to strategically time strength sessions and design concurrent training programs that minimize interference and maximize strength gains.
