Episode 191 – Should Women Train Differently to Men? 

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio, the team and I discuss the big question: should women train differently to men? And if so, how? We discuss all the variables of training that we need to consider in order to maximise your time spent training. It’s important to remember though that these are the cherries on top of the icing on the cake, so listen on with that in mind. We finish up on the nutritional considerations that may be pertinent for women, and what the best advice we would give to any woman looking to maximise their health and fitness endeavours. For the men tuning in, worry not, there are a lot of comparisons, similarities and nuggets that will be pertinent for you too.

“You should train what you want to develop.”
