I promise this will be ~25,000x more interesting than when you learned it the first time in class. :-) 

Ok, maybe I exaggerated a little...

5 Min Phys: What Exercises Do, and Don't DO!

 

One of the biggest mistakes I see people make when designing their workouts is failing to understand the fundamental principle that EXERCISES DO NOT determine the adaptation.

For example, just because you do "power cleans", you may not be getting more powerful. Or just because you need to improve your cardio, you don't necessarily HAVE to cycle, jog, or hit the elliptical.

This short video explains the true relationship between the exercise you perform, and the resulting adaptation!

Enjoy.

5 Min Phys: When Should You Have Your Protein? Metabolic Myths

 

5 Min Physiology: Are Straps, Belts,

and Swingin' Cheatin'? 

Ok, so maybe this episode is more like 10 Min Phys. My bad, I got excited. Here we quickly discuss whether or not using things like straps, braces, bands, or using momentum, bouncing, or swinging when you're lifting is "cheating". We also highlight 1 major give away to tell the difference between a trainer/coach who really knows what they're doing, and one that's faking it! Enjoy!
