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!
Did we just witness the biggest physiological/performance breakthrough in 60+ years? -
If you're unaware, people have been chasing the <2 hr marathon for decades. Nike spent millions and millions on training Kip for this. One of the most interesting parts of my PhD was analyzing the classic Mike Joyner paper (1991) theorizing the physiology required to accomplish such a feat. -
But like any good story, it will forever be marred in controversy. -
Just a few months ago, Nike coach Alberto Salazar was caught (allegedly) running a large and extensive doping program. Is Kip involved? Who knows. So far, no evidence linking him. -
Then it's the shoe. Nike recently developed footwear that "springs". A few months later, we see the historical record get obliterated. Some claim it's an unfair advantage, Nike says it's no different than any other advancement in sportswear that we've used the last 50 years. -
I'm completely unqualified to comment on the veracity of either issues. -
But what I do know, is I freaking love human performance, and no matter how you slice it, running a 4:34 mile for 26.2 in a row is ........😱😱😱
I'm completely brokenhearted & gutted for @genahfabian . @csagym and I made a really tough decision and stopped her weight cut yesterday and took her to the hospital. We don't use harsh diuretics or other extreme weight cut practices, nor risk an athlete's serious health. I'm very thankful her coaches Kirian and Darren were all on the same page about this. They displayed superior professionalism and ethics the entire time - never remotely willing to risk Genah's health. -
She was actually in a great spot coming in, but we quickly realized something was off. She battled THE LIVING SHIT out of it, but it was beyond anything we could've prepared for. Her mind never waiver an inch, so we had to step in. This was in no shape or form a problem of her not being disciplined. Genah worked insanely hard for 10 weeks preparing and sacrificing. She was ready to make weight and compete hard tonight. I can't imagine she will ever have this happen again. 155 is a safe and healthy weight for her. This was an anomaly. -
That said, I take 100% responsibility. It's my job to get her on weight safely - and that didn't happen. Period. I've never had this happen before, and hope it never happens again. My sincere apologies to Genah, her family, her coaches, the PFL, Kayla and her team. -
NOTE: She is resting and will be fully recovered in a few weeks, so nothing to be concerned with.
From Coach K: - unfortunately, @genahfabian will not be competing this weekend at the @pflmma Playoffs due to weight cut related issues and illness. As her Coach, it was my decision to stop her weight cut and have her taken to the hospital this morning (she wanted to continue) but based on what I and the team was seeing... I made the judgement call to air on the side of my fighters safety, it’s a call that always sucks to have to decide, but one that I will always make. My sincere apologies to @sugarraysefo and the entire team at @pflmma also to @judokayla @mikebrownmma and the team at @americantopteam . Thankfully PFL had an alternate in place and @bobbidl will take Genah’s spot so the show will go on. Good luck Bobbi Jo 🙏. Thank you to all of Genah’s fans for the continued support.

Wow...first study on what happened to strength in transgender athletes. Even after 1 yr of either testosterone or estrogen, the original differences remained. -
Fascinating work by my old friend @tlexercise. Paper is free to download. -
Swipe right for some figures or download the paper online. Our work on transgender individuals undergoing gender-affirming interventions is now available as preprint. -
We report on changes in muscle strength, size and composition following 12 months of treatment. - Transmen gain a staggering 15% muscle mass while Transwomen lose 5%. Strength levels were well maintained in TW. -
All in all, this means that the preexisting differences between the groups were not neutralized during one year of treatment.
The role of Estrogen in muscle regulation is super UNDERRATED and fascinates me. My homie @laurencs1 posted this and I think it's dope. Enjoy. - Estrogens potentially influence force production, recovery from training, muscle mass maintenance, and metabolic processes. -
Estrogens are involved in the regulation of:
💪🏻satellite cell proliferation
💪🏻rate of protein synthesis
While the influence of androgens on skeletal muscle are pretty well documented, the effect of estrogens are less clear but potentially important. More work to be done here!

I freaking love what my close friends @shruggedcollective are doing with this @onetonchallenge !!!! _
6 Lifts. One Goal. One Ton. The @onetonchallenge
Testing the raw strength of the power lifts (squat, deadlift, bench press), combined with the speed and athleticism of the olympic lifts (snatch, clean, jerk).
Add all 6 lifts together to find your One Ton Total. The goal is 2,000 (1,200) pounds.
Live events, competitions, and training plans to make strong people stronger, define the lifelong pursuit of strength, and create the complete strength athlete.
It isn’t random. Strength now has a definition.
Deadlift - 500
Squat - 400
Bench - 300
Clean - 300
Jerk - 300
Snatch - 200
One Ton Total - 2,000
