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!
😂😂😂 little Ecplise EXHAUSTED GFK today. Gonna need an ice bath after this one. * @solo_adventurerr - When your so tired... but still wanna play. Ellipse and the big homie Ghostface!!
Really honored to be featured in the New book by @sonnench & @officialryanparsons called @fourpackrevolution
First time @cspfullerton was featured in a book, and my 1st appearance in on the back of a book!
Pretty cool, not gonna lie, though I don't know why they put that George guy above me though, what has he ever done?!?? 😉
What does making a camp fire and your energy systems have in common?
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... Be sure to check out the cameo from my puppy, GhostFace Killah.

If you dig these, I’d appreciate some love on my patreon account, www.patreon.com/andygalpin (link in bio). Every buck or two makes a big difference in being able to hire someone to edit and post these videos. This will triple or quadruple the frequency of videos. If you can’t afford $5, I get it, I’ve been there (lived that way the majority of my life), so just sit back and enjoy, and buy me a beer sometime down the road when you get to a better spot. Or not. Either way, it’s all love.

The penultimate chapter of Volume 2 is out and we tackle an innovative method of using individual personality traits with program design.
If you're digging the show, please help us out with a 5 star and review!!! 😚😚😚😚 from @thebodyofknowledge - In chapter 7 of volume II, we dive into the mental side of training with Oak Park Mental Skills Coach, Jared Cohen (@itsderaj). There's a lot of discussion about mindset and mentality out there but few tools for measuring and improving these things with training. We describe some broader context and provide hands on examples for actually developing mental skills.

Few things grind my gears more than people talking about "CNS fatigue" - I've ranted many times about this on @barbellshruggedpodcast
Great post by @bayesianbodybuilding - *
So you decided to perform five 20-rep deadlift sets to failure. Today your deadlifting sucks ass. Is your CNS burnt out?
🏵Your central nervous system (CNS) ‘decides’ that a muscle should contract. Peripheral nerves then forward this message to the muscle. Between these nerves and the muscle there’s a so-called “neuromuscular junction”. There, the nerve message gets converted into an actual muscle contraction.
🚗To use a car analogy: The driver is your CNS, the pedal foot is the neuromuscular junction, and the engine is the muscle itself.
⛽Training balls to the wall (like failure training in a big exercise) greatly increases the time to recover to old strength levels [Morán-Navarro 2017].
🏋However, it’s probably not CNS fatigue that causes this. Multiple studies show CNS fatigue simply doesn’t occur [Latella 2017, Marshall 2015, Howatson 2016].
🔬Behrens et al. 2012 offer a better explanation. They needed a 40% bigger electric stimulus to get the same muscle contraction strength after a hard workout.
⛔They think stressful exercise impairs the functioning of the neuromuscular junction. Additionally, the muscle damage decreases overall strength of the muscle fibers.
😴So while the driver (CNS) stays rather unaffected, a gruesome workout tires out the pedal foot (neuromuscular junction) and damages the engine (muscle), which reduces muscle strength.
🕞So just realize that your puke-inducing session of deadlifts probably won’t affect your bench press strength the day after. The fatigue is not in your CNS, but mostly local, meaning close to or in the deadlifting muscles themselves

Hilarious convo about teaching sex education to middle schoolers, developing a sharp bullshit detector, and using Science to change the lives of kids.
So happy with this latest episode of @thebodyofknowledge
Be sure to check out Dave's book @theyaskedyouwhat ...it's belly laughing funny. * @thebodyofknowledge - In chapter 6 of volume II, we have the pleasure of discussing scientific thinking, sex education, and a slew of other topics with Dave Beck. Dave is a published author and science teacher who has been featured on the cover of the New York Times.

Sorry caffeine lovers (addicts 😉), but as I've said 10000x.
THERE ARE NO FREE PASSES IN PHYSIOLOGY.
OPTIMIZING or ADAPTING. Can't do both.
New paper out suggesting Cafffeine (which we know significantly improves exercise performance) may actually inhibit some of the high intensity exercise-induced adaptations.
Study had 2 groups. Exercise group saw the typical benefits of HIIT, but the HIIT+Caffeine group did not... "HIIT increases the thickness of the left ventricle and the Ca2+-ATPase activity and decrease the AChE activity in gastrocnemius muscle. Caffeine treatment prevents changes in enzymes activities as well as left ventricular hypertrophy adaptation induced by HIIT. caffeine modulates crucial pathways for muscle contraction in HIIT." Now: Don't over interpret as 1) it's only one study, 2) it was not in humans. But it highlights a grown concern for me that I brought up in Unplugged Book ...... We can't always be OPTIMIZING, but that usually runs counterproductive to ADAPTING.
Choose suffering (sometimes). Link to study on my Twitter and Facebook.
What really causes injury?
Hint: it's not the exercise, so stop blaming it.
Video on my YouTube, Twitter, FB, and website (www.andygalpin.com)....Or link in bio...y'all are so lazy!
Think better, friends.
Human movement doesn't ALWAYS require rigid, objective outcomes.
It's totally fine to exercise because it's fun, to learn/improve a skill, competition, play in the sun, blow off some steam, burn some energy, hang with friends, increase blood flow, think better, procrastinate from work, learn your body, and about 10000x other reasons.
1 yr ago today I signed my book deal for @unplugged_book .
It blew away my expectations, so a huge thank you to everyone who bought, shared, posted about, and reviewed it on Amazon.
Mostly, a billion thanks to @iamunscared and @philwhitebooks for leading this thing so I could just bask in the glory of their work.
Couldn't be happier with the end product.
Much love fellow humans. ❤❤❤❤❤ #unplugged #movingthingsforward
