A new study lends pretty solid support to two of my more iconoclastic positions about squatting, for which I previously only had shaky, circumstantial evidence. This article digs into the research and tells you what you need to know.
In this episode of the Stronger By Science Podcast, Greg and Eric split the “Feats of Strength” duties, then take a deep dive into some research on how sleep affects performance and body composition. Finally, Eric takes a trip to Flavortown and shares six easy, delicious chicken recipes for the calorie counters out there. Greg and Eric also interview Dr. Brandon Roberts, who tells us about his current bodybuilding prep, why some people respond better to training than others, and why sleep is so important for lifters.
In today’s episode, Greg and Eric field listener questions about why (and how) to warm up, practical ways to quantify volume and assess fatigue, how to tell if you’re a non-responder to creatine, and much more. As an added bonus, Greg gives a detailed explanation of how to make really, really good homemade ice cream.
