This is the first episode in a series, answering six great questions posed by Richi Alvarez in the private group for my online strength and conditioning programme. Richi is training full time at Khongsittha Gym in Bangkok, and has a background in strength and conditioning too. So there’s some great thought behind the questions. And I believed my answers would be of interest to everyone, and it’d be worth sharing them outside of my private group.

In this episode, I answer the first two questions about training inspiratory muscles and using hex bars…

If you want to see the other parts of Richi’s questions too…

PART 1 – Inspiration Muscles & Hex Bars

PART 2 – Skipping, Neural Fatigue, & Deloading in Thailand

PART 3 – Planning Cardio (Energy Systems) Conditioning in Thailand

PART 4 – Hip or Knee Dominant Exercise? Complete Rest?

Featuring Richi Alvarez

“…Things like the training mask… it doesn’t improve aerobic performance… you might as well train with a ball-gag, like out of Pulp Fiction!”
