Partial ROM, Intra-Workout Carbs, MASS Research Roundup

Greg and Eric discuss some of their favorite MASS articles from the past year or so, with topics including p-ratios, plant-based protein, carbs for lifters, effects of diet on testosterone, emerging supplements, partial-ROM training, the interference effect (concurrent training), and muscle damage. Finally, Eric answers some listener questions about soy protein and intra-workout carbohydrate, then closes out the show by recommending some focus-enhancing music to play while you work.
