Answered by Jonathan Glick on Sep 26, 2013

However, a simple formula to consider: Personal Training Rate X 1.5 / Goal Number of Participants X Number of To...

Is it safe to train the upper and lower body on the same day of each workout?

5 Answers | Asked by Yasir A. on Sep 23, 2013

Answered by Jonathan Glick on Sep 24, 2013
