Dr Andy Galpin joins us today to talk SCIENCE. He is a Professor of Kinesiology at the Center for Sports Performance at California State University, Fullerton. He has a PhD in Human Bioenergetics and is the founder and director of the Biochemistry and Molecular Exercise Laboratory.
Why do certain types of training programs work better than others? Why do certain people respond to certain types of training better than others?
Andy is a muscle scientist who studies muscle at the single-cell level all the way up to the performance to try to determine what happens in response to high intensity, high power, high velocity, high force exercise acutely and chronically.
He is best known for studying “human thriving”. What do we do to not just avoid being sick but how do we optimize? How do we thrive? He spends time examining those that do that so that we really understand what we’re shooting for in terms of optimal health and performance.
In this episode, we chat about things like why we think of science the wrong way, why hypertrophy training is so critical for long term development, the diabetes of dopamine, what happens when we eliminate all stress, and so much more.
I admire his skill for communicating such complex topics in laymen’s terms. His new book Unplugged is taking the best seller’s list by storm. Make sure you support the message by grabbing a copy and leaving a review on Amazon!
