Training

Slowing Down the Workouts When Cutting

In the build-up to a competition, Raymont usually eases his training intensity off, to prevent an injury from occurring.

Otherwise, he lifts heavy weights, and also focuses on intensity; believing that these two aspects are even more important than volume when it comes to building muscle.
