Episode notes

Today we are busting some myths with the first episode in a new series on myth-busting. Strength training ISN'T only for men and Coaches Alex, Austin, and Sue dive headfirst into this myth. Listen in as they discuss getting bulky, toning, cardio over strength training, and so much more.

As always, it is our goal not only to supply you, the listener, with valuable insights on the topics or questions but also to plant some seeds for further research and thought. Without further ado, let's get into today's episode.
