We've come a LONG way in our understanding of fat the last few decades.
Nature rarely has good and bad, in absolutity. Value/harm is rather determined by context, concentration, implementation, etc.
Great graphic from @dr.eddiejo -
More often than not body fat has been viewed as harmful to human health when in fact it is rather HIGH AMOUNTS of body fat that is the culprit. This common mindset has enabled a negative perception of body fat in that it is a useless organ people just want to get "rid of". On the contrary, however, body fat or adipose has an important role in whole-body metabolism; in fact, it can be beneficial to overall energy expenditure, lipid and glucose homeostasis, and weight-control... it just depends on what kind of adipose we're dealing with. Adipose tissue comprises of three types of fat cells, white, beige, and brown, each with distinct physical and metabolic characteristics. Beige and brown fat cells are more thermogenic, smaller, and conducive to whole-body energy expenditure compared to the white fat cells which are prevalent in obese individuals.
Many of the benefits of chronic exercise in general metabolism are commonly attributed to positive metabolic adaptations in muscle while adipose is largely ignored due its negative reputation. Research, however, has shown that chronic exercise also promotes positive metabolic adaptations in fat cells which in part is stimulated by chemicals derived from active muscles during exercise. This effect is referred to as "browning" of white fat cells which results in smaller and more thermogenic beige fat cells. These adaptations in adipose promote improved whole-body energy expenditure, lipid and glucose homeostasis, and control of body fat mass. Overall, chronic exercise has a positive impact on multiple organs beyond muscle, including those with a bad reputation and should be incorporated especially during weight-loss endeavors to promote long-term success.

You're out of your mind to miss this of you like combat sports.
The @nscaofficial is hosting a clinic on training for combat at the amazing new @ufcpi
This will sell out, so don't wait. A chance to learn from the best AND visit this new facility!
Presentors include @lorenlandow @dr_duncan_french
Remember we have Live (in-person) and Live Stream (sit on your couch) options now too!! https://www.nsca.com/combat2017/
In case you missed this. My chat with @joerogan from last week where we talk exercise physiology, #MMA, #nutrition, #strength training, philosophy, our new book @unplugged_book , by @iamunscared @philwhitebooks and myself, my podcast with @thekennykane called @thebodyofknowledge and so much more!
Audio on iTunes etc, video up on YouTube.

A visual of what I was talking about on @joerogan this week.
Speed, power, & strength differ greatly, and should be trained accordingly. Those with great elastic components may need more strength, those with great muscle function may need to develop connective tissue, spindles, and nervous system....generally (of course). from @darustrong - When formulating a full physical preparation program all aspects of performance must be met efficiently. This chart by @cal.dietz talks about Triphasic and how it will help the balancing of tendon and muscle strength. With eccentric training phases and concentric phases.
When you only focus on speed and plyometrics you develop strong tendons but not enough loaded tension on the muscle to cause adequate change. This could result in possible muscle strain, pull, or even tears. You are also inhibiting the ability to become faster and more powerful due to the prerequisites for speed and power (strength). When you only focus on strength training the tendons become weak. This will result in possible tendon tearing, tendinitis, and instability under high velocity impact.
Implementing a plan that takes care of both sides of the spectrum will not only enhance performance and athletic ability but reduce injury substantially.

We're #4 because of YOU!!! Can't thank you enough.
BUT WE WANT #1
With your help we can push past Phil Knight & Tim Ferriss to claim the throne. Imagine that, 3 nobodies beating these giants!
Here's how you can help:
1. Buy the book on Amazon (never too early to buy Xmas presents 😁).
2. Post a review on Amazon
3. Help us spread the word by tagging, commenting, or reposting.
OUR SINCEREST GRATITUDE,
Brian, Phil, and Andy.
Reaching your goals will be delayed or cut short if you don't learn to FEEL.
We (@iamunscared @philwhitebooks ) outline this EXTENSIVELY in our new book @unplugged_book
Excellent post from the homie @steficohen -
More often than not I see athletes forcing themselves to complete their programming daily regardless of how beat up they are or what they feel like doing that day. As we accumulate training years, aches and pains increase, and our motivation to come in and do work can fade. But how important is it to follow your programming to the T? I started searching for the answer after having success with being more lenient with my workout and exercise selection. Autoregulatory training adjusts to individual athlete’s adaptations on a day-to-day basis.
METHODS: 18 well trained participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups; AES (auto-regulatory) or FES (fixed). The training protocol consisted of three full body workouts a week for 9 weeks. Total lean body mass was assessed on a DEXA scan and maximal strength assessment (1RM) was assessed at weeks 0 and 10.
RESULTS: There was a significant increase in BOTH lean body mass and strength in the AES group as compared to the FES group. AES provides an advantage in body composition and performance adaptations in highly strength trained males.
PRACTICAL APPLICATION: Allowing athletes to select the exercises they feel most prepared to perform on a given day may allow them to tolerate greater volume loads. Auto-regulatory exercise selection might also be an effective method to prompt further adaptations in highly trained individuals, since the magnitude of increase in strength and muscle hypertrophy plateaus as training experience increases.
I feel I dropped a massive opportunity to breakdown the basics of Carbs, sugar, Fat etc yesterday while talking to @joerogan .
To amend that, I've tossed up the simplest explanation I could possibly muster on my YouTube channel & website www.andygalpin.com . Should be up by ~6pm PST.
Hope this helps. If so, let him and others know!
