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!
$$$$ Being a professional (in this case, RD) can really, really pay off.
I love when new science comes out. Especially lifting science.
Probably the single biggest mistake I made earlier in my career/life is captured well by the saying. *
This is akin to the fallacy of omission and step-brother to the logical fallacy of "appeal to lack of evidence".
Translation: Just because you have no evidence for something, that alone does NOT prove (or even strongly suggest) that something is not true. i.e. Lacking proof of "working" is NOT the same as "proof it DOES NOT work". -
Example: "There is no compelling evidence that X does Y".
Earlier in my career, this always led me to take the position that X DOES NOT WORK, and/or X must be a complete scam, snake-oil, or bro-science. *
While that assertion may actually be true, it's unfounded and a poor conclusion as several things could explain why "there is not compelling evidence that X does in did do Y". -
1. It simply hasn't been tested. This means: a) no good proof it works, but at the same time you have b) no good proof that it doesn't either.
2. The evidence does actually exist, but you just haven't seen it yet.
3. You heard some "authority" (not expert) SAY that no such evidence exists - when it fact it does, but your lazy ass just took their word for it because they sound smart on podcasts. This probably drives me insane more than anything in the world. Don't speak authoritatively about a topic that you aren't massively well versed in when you're speaking to the public. "I don't know" or "from what i've seen, which is limited, but..." are perfectly acceptable statements. ------ #2 and 3 are SUUUUPPPPER common. Can't tell you how many times I've heard people say "no evidence that blah blah happens".....and i've been able to find several studies showing thatvery thing in a matter of seconds on www.pubmed.com ** Summary: Understanding the difference between lack of evidence vs. evidence that shows something doesn't work. They are very, very, very different.
Brand new muscle paper shows for the FIRST time that strength training enables recruitment of motor units with greater individual muscle FIBER (i.e. the single cell itself!!!) contraction velocity in a shorter amount of time when compared to untrained subjects. -
Yes, improvements in the nervous system areimportant. And yes, muscle fibers hypertrophy. BUT LET'S NOT FORGET MUSCLE FIBERS GET FASTER, STRONGER, AND MORE POWERFUL INDEPENDENT of nerves or changes in cell size.
Excellent job by @the_issn and crew.
It's extensive, very thorough, easy to read, and FREEEEE for anyone.
Great leadership on what science should be. -

Seriously, the cutest thing ever. It's never too early to start learning to lift weights. Swipe over to see how his lifting face is EXACTLY like his Dad's (while setting world record). Oh yeah, and today is the last day sign up for the cheap price for our Weightlifting seminar.
Link in bio.
And yes, the little guy will be there to assist during the seminar 😉. @emilydrewmash @coachtravismash @masheliteperformance @douglaselarson @shruggedcollective
Don't know why this happens, but it's likely a "saturation" of adaption occurred.
The supplement didn't work at all, and the acute benefits were all placebo.
This isn't likely as NaHCO3 has been studied extensively and works well.
Companies @muscleandmotion - www.muscleandmotion.com make me smile.
The future of education is bright if we use technology properly.
How much easier would Anatomy class have been with these videos (particularly those of us who went through college before YouTube existed....)
Head to my FB or Google the title to check out the article. It's free and open access.
Just 1 month left until a full weekend of Weightlifting with myself, @masheliteperformance @coachtravismash , and @douglaselarson . *
Travis is a world record holder and coach of countless champion lifters. *
Doug is a 20+ year lifter with a Masters in Human Movement Sciences. *
We'll be covering everything you need to know for competing in your 1st meet!!! We'll have lectures on program design, the science of WL, mobility and corrective exercises, hands on technique work, and even a fire pit Sat night get together.
Spots are limited, so don't wait anlonger. Link in bio for all necessary details!
