Jeff Alberts aka the godfather of natural bodybuilding. Jeff has over 30 years of training experience and is a natural pro bodybuilder with the WNBF. He is also a coach and founder of 3d muscle journey a leading coaching service for natural powerlifters and bodybuilders. Today we talk about his most recent prep, how it was so successful vs. other preps, peak week, post show and how training has changed as Jeff’s aged. In this highly anticipated episode, Mike & Paul go into a discussion around the stimulus to fatigue ratio, which implies things such as proper technique, failure proximity, exercise selection and much more!
