    James Smith on Steroids, Calling Out B******t, & His Bizarre Path To The Fitness Industry

    James Smith on Steroids, Calling Out B******t, & His Bizarre Path To The Fitness Industry

    In this episode of the podcast, Layne and Holly interview James Smith. James is the author of two best-selling books "Not a Diet Book" and "Not a Life Coach" and is known in the fitness industry as someone who takes no shit and pulls no punches. He also has one of the most interesting and, quite frankly, bizarre stories of how he came to be an established figure in the industry. James is also extremely transparent when discussing his experiences with anabolic steroids, alcohol, and various other things. This episode is very entertaining, funny, and a must-listen for aspiring fitness professionals.

    Hypertrophy Talk: Volume, Load, Intensity, & Going to the 'Dark Place' with Dr. Mike Israetel of Renaissance Periodization

    In this episode, Holly and Layne interview Dr. Mike Israetel. Dr. Israetel is one of the most well-known evidence-based hypertrophy experts in the world. We chat with him about what matters most for hypertrophy, with the discussion centering around volume, load, intensity, and proximity to failure. We also get insight into the mindset of hardcore training where we will teach our listeners about the difference between training to failure... and training to failure by going to the 'dark place.'

    The Resistance Training Revolution: Benefits, Myths, & Why Everyone Should Do It with Sal Di Stefano of Mind Pump

    The Resistance Training Revolution: Benefits, Myths, & Why Everyone Should Do It with Sal Di Stefano of Mind Pump

    There are many myths that have been perpetuated about resistance training over the years including but not limited to:


    -Lifting makes you bulky


    -Lift light weights to be 'toned'


    -Lifting stunts your growth


    -Lifting makes you 'muscle bound'


    In this episode, Layne talks with Sal Di Stefano from Mind Pump. Sal began his fitness journey of lifting weights as a teenager and became a personal trainer at 18 years of age, then was promoted to general manager of a large gym by age 19, and started his own business at 22 by opening his own personal training studio. A veteran of 'in the trenches' hands-on personal training, Sal brings a practical element of resistance training knowledge with an ability to distill complex topics into engaging content.


    Layne and Sal rap about the many benefits of resistance training, the myths about it, and why almost everyone should be resistance training in some form.

    Partial vs Full Range of Motion, Post-Training Heat Stress, & Their Effects on Hypertrophy with Dr. Dan Newmire

    Partial vs Full Range of Motion, Post-Training Heat Stress, & Their Effects on Hypertrophy with Dr. Dan Newmire

    Dan Newmire is a professor at Texas A&M and has also competed as a successful bodybuilder, winning the superheavyweight class at 2012 NPC Junior USA Championships. Dan's research centers around the mechanisms behind hypertrophy and one of his specific areas of research is examining the utility of partial ranges of motion on hypertrophy compared to more conventional methods. He also is interested in the adaptations to resistance exercise and the effects of warm & cold immersion on recovery from resistance training. It is rare that a researcher such as Dan also has the same 'hardcore,' in-gym experience as many top bodybuilders. This gives him a unique perspective on what is useful for fat loss, muscle gain, and body composition. Don't miss this episode!

Long time waiting

Kept waiting for a Layne Norton podcast! Finally! Layne is so good, straight forward and no BS. Science based and on point. I love Holly as well her knowledge on nutrition is real informative and as I’m an Aussie too it’s good to hear a true blue accent. The way Layne and Holly bounce off each other is so funny and highly entertaining. Love it. Layne your a deadset legend in my books and Holly is brilliant! Thanks for sharing!
