Turkesterone, Carb Overfeeding, and Commonly Neglected Muscles

Eric revisits the topic of beta-ecdysterone and turkesterone supplementation in light of some controversy within the supplement industry. Greg discusses the newest Stronger By Science article by Cameron Gill, which explores the most commonly neglected movements and muscles. That’s followed by a Coach’s Corner segment in which Eric discusses carbohydrate overfeeding in the context of bulking diets, and directly compares it to fat overfeeding.
