Today’s show features a research review segment in which Eric covers a couple papers that made headlines: one reported that we offset some of the calories burned during exercise by saving energy elsewhere, and another reported that hot dogs can shorten our lives by about 36 minutes. After that, Greg discusses a new paper about modeling muscle growth that also generated plenty of headlines, along with an important update about the performance effects of caffeine for women. This episode also features a Coach’s Corner segment about setting calorie targets for a wide range of diet goals, and a Q&A segment addressing topics including the effects of aging on performance, the long-term health ramifications of bulking and cutting, the effect of pre-bed meals on sleep quality, and more.
In today’s episode, Eric gives a thorough overview of a recent study that has generated a lot of buzz about how age and biological sex relate to metabolic rate and total energy expenditure. After discussing the new findings, Eric provides several practical strategies for estimating total daily energy expenditure. In addition, Greg presents a research update summarizing some new findings in the area of blood flow restricted training. Finally, Greg and Eric discuss the research (or lack thereof) assessing the effects of Turkesterone supplementation on exercise performance and resistance training adaptations.
