From Jon: Each Sunday thePTDC publishes a list of the top articles from around the web in 5 different categories: bodybuilding, general health, fat loss, strength training, and nutrition.
We scan the net, but if you’d like to submit your article for consideration, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Top Article of the Week
Your clients’ results depend on a whole host of factors, including the obvious training programme and nutrition, and still obvious but often overlooked, such as adherence (i.e. your clients’ ability to stay on plan). This week’s top pick justifies the reasons why the latter is more important, and includes actionable steps that you can implement to improve your own clients’ adherence to their plan. No matter how technically perfect on paper a plan could be, it will only be perfect if the client can follow it.
