This is part 2 of our series of articles based on a yearlong injury study we (semi) recently concluded. In the first analytical look at the injury study data, we will be focusing on whether the people who sustained an injury during the course of the study differed from the people who didn’t sustain an injury.
In Episode 4, Eric discusses the challenges of being an ultra-elite two-sport athlete with a bad hip, and Greg shares some crazy feats of strength. Greg and Eric are joined by Rick Collins, Esq., CSCS, one of the top legal experts in the world of dietary supplements, for an in-depth discussion about how supplements are […]
A recent study told people they had either a good or bad genetic draw for aerobic exercise or hunger and satiety. Manipulating the subjects’ beliefs about their genetics changed both their objective and subjective responses to subsequent testing. This study builds upon prior literature showing that expectancy can influence outcomes to a surprising degree.
A lot of people have asked me to review the research on safety bar squats. There was just one problem: there wasn’t any. That’s changed over the past couple of months.
We recently completed a yearlong study assessing factors contributing to injury risk in powerlifters. This article is the first in a series detailing our results.
It’s becoming clear that a lot of published research is unreplicable and untrustworthy. How do incorrect findings occur, and how can we predict whether the results of a particular study are likely to be sound?
There is a lot of debate about training frequency for muscle growth. See what the data actually say.
There’s a lot of debate about the effects of training frequency for strength gains. However, the data are surprisingly clear.
How do factors like age, strength, or sex impact strength gains in competitive powerlifters (not just untrained subjects in a lab setting)? I analyzed the data of almost 20,000 competitors, and these are the results.
Due to the significance of systematic reviews and meta-analyses, we’ve put together a list and short take-home message of many recent systematic reviews and meta-analyses so you can cut straight to the chase of the results.
