Brad Schoenfeld, PhD, CSCS, CSPS, FNSCA, is an internationally renowned fitness expert and widely regarded as one of the leading authorities on body composition training (muscle development and fat loss). 

Brad is a best-selling author of multiple fitness books including The M.A.X. Muscle Plan, which has been widely referred to as the “muscle-building bible,” and Strong and Sculpted, which details a cutting-edge body sculpting program targeted to women. Brad also has authored the seminal textbook Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy, which is the first text devoted to an evidence-based elucidation of the mechanisms and strategies for optimizing muscle growth.

Brad earned his Master’s degree in kinesiology/exercise science from the University of Texas and his PhD at Rocky Mountain University, where his dissertation focused on elucidating the mechanisms of muscle hypertrophy and their application to resistance training. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed research articles on exercise and sports nutrition, many in high impact factor journals, as well as several textbook chapters.

In this episode, he shared with us scientific insights on gaining muscle and strength. We covered pre and post workout nutrition (including protein intake benefits, optimal time window, amount, and type), the relationship between training frequency and muscle gainz, between keto diets and muscle gainz, recommended rest periods during training, and more.

Amazing episode, hope you enjoy!

Marisa Inda is the current All-Time All Record Powerlifting Champion at 114 lb (all ages, all divisions)!

Her best powerlifting meet numbers are:

Squat 330 lb. | Bench 209 lb. | Deadlift 413 lb. etc.

Marisa was doing hypertrophy training for 15 years before she stumbled upon a flyer for a powerlifting meet. Without thinking too much, she signed up and competed. She didn’t know the full rules and didn’t even have the legit belt for her first meet. Only afterward her first meet did she start properly eating and training for powerlifting.

Marisa incorporates bodybuilding exercises, such as drop sets and partial rep ranges, into her training by adding it at the end of her powerlifting workouts. She likes to maintain a well-rounded, strong physique and finds these exercises beneficial for her powerlifting lifts.

She's a world record holder in the total (all 3 lifts combined) and has much to teach you about how to be very, very strong!

Enjoy!

Chad Wesley Smith is the owner/founder of Juggernaut Training Systems and one of the most accomplished strength athletes of recent years. With a background in track and field, Smith took his 2 collegiate national championships and continued his success in powerlifting and strongman.

Today we discuss Chad’s 7 Scientific Principles of Strength Training

1. Specificity — Training designed to achieve a particular outcome

2. Overload — Is training stimulating enough to drive neural adaptation? Training must become harder overtime through more volume and more weight.

3. Fatigue management — Your recovery process: Besides deload days and proper nutrition and sleep, should include adaptive recovery strategies like ice baths, massages, etc.

4. SRA (Stimulus Recovery Adaptation) — Your training process: Frequency and duration of training and recovery.

5. Variation — Avoid staleness by shifting phases. Keep in mind variation should always be in context with Specificity (principle #1).

6. Phase potentiation — Make the most of each training phase.

7. Individual differences — We're similar but not "the same"

Enjoy!

Today's episode is a something unique.  Today we look at Hollywood and what's it's like to get in shape for the big screen.  

Brandon Routh is a Hollywood actor who currently plays The Atom in the TV show DC's Legend's of Tomorrow on Netflix. Brandon is best known for playing Superman in the movie Superman Returns (2006).

Yup, he's a superhero.  

In this episode we discuss the kind of training and nutrition he used to get in shape to portray a character who has seemingly unlimited physical strength.  

Hope you enjoy!

Mike and Doug
