#134 Dean, Lizzy and George - Peak Week (Part 2)

Season #1

There are more things that can add to a successful peak week for a bodybuilding competition outside of carbohydrate manipulation. In this episode, we look beyond carbs to those other considerations.

Something worth sharing:
Do Hard Things: Why We Get Resilience Wrong and the Surprising Science of Real Toughness by Steve Magness, Mike Chamberlain, et al.

Would you rather:
A: Never eat COR (cream of rice) again
B: Only be able to eat COR alongside dry oats "
