Episode 188: Brad Schoenfeld - All Things Hypertrophy

This episodes guest is Dr. Brad Scheonfeld.

Brad is an assistant professor in the exercise science department at Lehman College in the Bronx, NY, and acts as director of their human performance laboratory.

Brad earned his masters degree in kinesiology/exercise science from the University of Texas and his PhD at Rocky Mountain University where his dissertation focused on elucidating the mechanisms of muscle hypertrophy and their application to resistance training. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed research articles on exercise and sports nutrition, many in high impact factor journals, as well as several textbook chapters. He acts as the Assistant Editor-in-Chief for the NSCA's Strength and Conditioning Journal, as well as serving on the editorial advisory board for the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition and the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

Brad is a best-selling author of multiple fitness books including The M.A.X. Muscle Plan (Human Kinetics, 2012), which has been widely referred to as the "muscle-building bible," and Strong and Sculpted (Human Kinetics, 2016), which details a cutting-edge body sculpting program targeted to women. Brad also has authored the seminal textbook Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy (Human Kinetics, 2016), the first text devoted to an evidence-based elucidation of the mechanisms and strategies for optimizing muscle growth. In total, Brad's books have sold over a half-million copies.

On this episode Brad and I discuss:

Episode 185: Alex Viada - Hybrid (Concurrent) Training Masterclass

This episode's guest is Alex Viada from Complete Human Performance.

Alex Viada, NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and USA Triathlon Coach, is the founder and co-owner of Complete Human Performance. A lifelong athlete, he has participated and competed in nearly every sport imaginable (some with greater success than others), since being dragged to his first swim meet when he was four years old.

Alex has close to 13 years of personal training and coaching experience with over 300 athletes of all ages and levels, in sports ranging from bodybuilding to ultra running to triathlon to cycling to powerlifting. He has also prepared close to 40 individuals for Ranger School, SFAS, BUD/s, and other selective military programs.

A graduate of Duke University, currently on hiatus from a Masters of Physiology program at NC State University, Alex enjoys lifting heavy things, biking, running long distances, and otherwise pushing himself to his limit (though his body is not always on board with the program). He is also an avid homebrewer, and if you give him much of an opening, he will happily bore you with details on hop schedules and yeast strain flocculation. You’ve been warned.

On this episode Alex and I discuss:

  • Alex's background & Influences 
  • What are the good and not so good things that Alex currently see's with the physical preparation profession, and what solutions would he offer for the not so good things he is seeing?
  • I ask Alex how did he get into Hybrid (Concurrent Training)?
  • I ask Alex - what considerations need to be made for strength athletes wanting to start endurance sports, and what considerations do endurance athletes need to mark when they want to get into strength sports
  • I ask Alex what is it like to deal with the different personality types between strength athletes vs endurance athletes when they begin their journey into concurrent training
  • I ask Alex about the nutritional needs for the hybrid athlete
  • I ask Alex - How does he calculate an Athletes caloric needs when they begin to engage in concurrent training
  • I ask Alex - what are the common myths that he consistently has to dismiss with concurrent training and what are the benefits for strength athletes to incorporate some endurance work into their training regimes and vice versa for the endurance athlete
  • I ask Alex to discuss his design of training cycles for concurrent training and how he consolidates stressors
  • I ask how does he peak individuals for powerlifting meets and endurance events that are very close together on the competition calendar?
  • I ask Alex - How does his learn?
  • I ask Alex - what have been the biggest Lessons he has learned so far in his life?
  • I ask Alex for his top resources
  • I ask Alex for his top life advice 
  • I ask Alex if he only had 1 year left on Planet Earth - how would he spend that year and why?
  • I ask Alex if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

 

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Episode 184: Pat Davidson - Whats New? MASS 3, Reckoning 2, and Costa Rica Retreat

Firstly - My audio sucks dick on this episode - I was in between laptops at the time and the audio on my end didn't come out great. I fucked up the mic set up. Pat is crystal clear, and really that's all that matters.

Also you will hear me chopping some vegetables for a few minutes mid-way through the episode (27:00 to approximately 38:00) and because I was unaware of how the laptop I was using at the time was functioning regarding the audio set up - it picked up the sound of me preparing my meal. But fuck it the content of the conservation was too good for me not to post this episode. I have since sorted the audio and have acquired a quality mic, and since this episode the audio for all episodes since has been excellent. 

Anyway....

On this episode Pat and I discuss:

  • Whats new with him
  • MASS 3
  • We discuss the use of RPEs
  • I ask Pat about the withdrawal from completing MASS 2 and how he will consider this for MASS 3
  • I ask Pat - how was the Reckoning 2
  • Pat discusses how we as a specific are reducing our allostatic capabilities by making our environments too comfortable 
  • I ask Pat - How was the retreat at Ben House's Wellness Centre in Costa Rica
  • I ask Pat what was he currently reading at the time of this recording

 

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB

Episode 179: Dan John - Life Lessons from the Hotel Room

This episodes guest is with the man himself Dan John.

Dan really needs no introduction. But here is a little background information, anyway:

Dan John has spent his life with one foot in the world of lifting and throwing, and the other foot in academia. An All-American discus thrower, Dan has also competed at the highest levels of Olympic lifting, Highland Games and the Weight Pentathlon, an event in which he holds the American record.

Dan spends his work life blending weekly workshops and lectures with full-time writing, and is also an online religious studies instructor for Columbia College of Missouri. As a Fulbright Scholar, he toured the Middle East exploring the foundations of religious education systems. Dan is also a Senior Lecturer for St Mary’s University, Twickenham, London.

His books, on weightlifting, include Intervention, Never Let Go, Mass Made Simple and Easy Strength, written with Pavel Tsatsouline as well as From Dad, To Grad. He and Josh Hillis co-authored “Fat Loss Happens on Monday.”

In 2015, Dan wrote Can You Go? on his approach to assessments and basic training. In addition, Before We Go, another compilation akin to Never Let Go became an Amazon Bestseller.

In early 2017, Dan’s book, Now What?, his approach to Performance and dealing with “life,” became a Bestseller on Amazon. Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge became available in September 2017, too.
