Check out some of his TV, Podcasts, and other media appearances here!
I join Barbell Shrugged as Co-Host to talk with University of Minnesota Head Strength & Conditioning Coach Cal Dietz about his "Triphasic Training Method, Proper Bracing (may not the core?), and Developing Explosive Strength!
Listen to me "Debunk Muscle Myth's" on the Episode #31 of Alpha Movement Podcast Here!
Our newest @cspfullerton paper on fiber type and leg dominance is out! *
We found strength, jumping, and fiber type cleared differed between dom and non-dominant legs.
However, the paper REALLY highlights the need for reporting individual and group data. E.g., several of our measures were significantly different between legs when analyzed as a group average. BUT that finding didn't actually exist in 75+% of the people. This would have been completely masked if didn't report indi data. *
Scroll through to read the Abstract (short synopsis of what we found, and how we did it).

The next 2 episodes of my podcast @thebodyofknowledge are up!
In 2.3 we talk about WHY PEOPLE DON'T GET WHAT THEY WANT.
and 2.4 I was so, so, so stoked to interview one of my oldest, closest friends in the world, @douglaselarson . Doug is one of the cofounders of @barbellshruggedpodcast and so much more. Really happy to highlight this unspoken, often unknown mega-leader.
Lot's of valuable take aways and things you can put into practice in both chapters.
Available on all podcast platforms.

Guess where this muscle tissue came from?
These fibers (you can see some with your naked eye!) are ENORMOUS according to @drjimmybagley .
Hint: from an elite strength athlete...
New study of 450 CrossFit participants over 1 yr period finds 56% injured. 59% of these were "overuse". Injured parts looked like this: Shoulders (29%), lower back (16%), knee (8%). Important question: what is "normal" for activities like this? 50%, 25%, 15%? Nobody knows.
Injury rates of normal gym go'ers or weekend warriors is certainly not <15%. Over the course of 12 months, my guess is it's probably close to that 50% mark.
Thought the authors did a nice job of not "bashing" CF here, and simply saying these data are important to help us establish baseline rates for activities like this. The only way we get better is objective feedback, and sometimes that hurts (it never feels good to be criticized), but if you trust the process, the result usually means something is improved.
I personally feel the CF community has GREATLY improved in this area the last 5-8 years, but that doesn't mean they can't keep striving for better.
You can take criticism 2 ways.
1. A golden opportunity to get better. See it as a gift - most people have to pay very large $$$$ for detailed feedback like this on a product or service.
2. Well.....Nothing gets better, we create divisions and zealots (for & against). Hoping CF community opts for #1.

Please help me get the word out about this amazing opportunity for any of our students, current or former.
Legendary coach @rmckeefery Ron McKeefery (PLAE) is hiring about 35 strength coaches to train the Chinese Olympic teams. Full time positions with Health Benefits. Ideal candidate are former GAs that have not been able to find that first full time job yet, but all should apply. *
If interested send resumes to Ron.McKeefery@plae.global.
12 month contract. Flight, room, and board covered. -
Apparently watching TV all day ISN'T great for our long-term health. *
Important to note, this is correlation. TV watching doesn't cause inflammation. And it doesn't cause death. *
It probably realistically simply works as a crude barometer for the lifestyle choices excessive tv watchers make relative to those who watch less tv. It's NOT the TV, it's the other choices associated with it: extreme sedentary behavior, etc. *
This is a classic example of why @philwhitebooks @iamunscared and I wrote our book Unplugged @unplugged_book this summer. *
We're living in a major health crisis. And we need way better relationships with tech, or we don't be around much longer.

Newest @cspfullerton study is out and open access (free!). We analyze which of the 3 most common starting stances produced the fastest first-to-second-base time. Be sure to let all of your softball/baseball/fast-pitch friends know!
Congrats to Amy Marquardt @amymarquardt8 on a stellar study!

New study indicating that although it's early, #creatine appears very effective at treating fatty liver disease.
People really, really need to start understanding what Creatine really is, and how important it is in a huge number of physiological processes.
This could be really important.
Much work needed, but great start!

Really happy @menshealthmag gave our lab a research a 7 page special in their Jan issue (biggest of the year). This is a huge honor and important to putting muscle science and research into the mainstream.
Huge thanks to our team and collaborators @cspfullerton
@kilerk0 @musclephyslab @nateserrano.strengthspecialist
@mcmanus059 @joseadanarevalo @katiebathgate27 @dr.eddiejo and many, many more
