In this episode, Rachel breaks down how to get the most out of your workouts, the drawbacks and benefits with training to failure, how to align yourself with a coach, CGM’s, and more!

"You don't want to train to failure on everything, but you do need to get close to failure in order to stimulate muscle growth." Rachel Gregory

Today's Questions:

  • I’ve been reading a book where the author is a big advocate of doing exercises to failure or he doesn’t think it’s worth doing. I know we typically don’t go to failure and work with the RIR scale, but can you explain this reasoning further?
  • Tips on how to match yourself up with a coach?
  • What are some hormonal effects for women on keto or keto/carnivore diets?
  • Why are continuous glucose monitors so expensive?

Top Takeaways:

  • Pro and Cons of going to failure in your training 
  • Strategies on how to align yourself with a coach
  • Reasons behind the cost of a continuous glucose monitor
