    "Valuable Supplements: Part II" with Dr. Stuart Phillips, PhD.

    "Valuable Supplements: Part II" with Dr. Stuart Phillips, PhD.

    In this week's episode of the Discover Strength Podcast, I had the pleasure of being joined once again by Dr. Stuart Phillips.

    Dr. Phillips is a senior lecturer at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. He is widely regarded as one of the preeminent researchers in the world on protein. In this week's episode we focus specifically on supplements. What works, what doesn't and what does the research say is worth spending your money on.

    The supplement industry is fraught with misinformation, disinformation and unfortunately outright lies. There are however, a few supplements backed by research and proven time and time again to be effective in muscle building. That list however, is very short, and because the industry is widely unregulated, it's important to know what is worth using and what can potentially hinder you, harm you, or will simply be a waste of time and money.

    In this episode Dr. Phillips in I discuss that short list of supplements we know work for sure. We also talk about some other supplements that may or may not have potential, and the rest unfortunately are for the most part, just fancy marketing. If you're interested in hearing our other episodes with Dr. Phillips, check out Season 2, Episode 9 (Here) and see links below for Dr. Phillips on previous seasons.

    "Valuable Supplements: Part I" with Dr. Stuart Phillips, Ph.D.

    In this week's episode of the Discover Strength Podcast, I had the pleasure of being joined once again by Dr. Stuart Phillips.

    Dr. Phillips is a senior lecturer at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. He is widely regarded as one of the preeminent researchers in the world on protein. In this week's episode we talk about the biggest differences in protein types. This means jumping into the debate on "Animal vs. Plant" protein.

    We discuss things such as bioavailability and contribution to muscle protein synthesis (MPS), and what are the best non-animal protein sources to optimize muscle and strength gain in conjunction with proper resistance training.

    We also discuss the realities of what protein can and cannot do. If you've ever had any questions on protein quality and consumption, this episode is a must. I'd also highly recommend you check out Dr. Phillips previous episode on the podcast.

    "Intervals vs. Steady State Training and Body Composition" with Dr. James Steele, PhD.

    "Intervals vs. Steady State Training and Body Composition" with Dr. James Steele, PhD.

    On this week's episode of "The Discover Strength Podcast" we are joined by one of the premier researchers in the field of Exercise Science, Dr. James Steele, PhD.

    Dr. Steele is a professor at Solent University in the UK and one of the leading authorities on Exercise Science research in the world. He's collaborated with a number of our other guests including Dr. Brad Schoenfeld, Dr. James Fisher, Dr. Stuart Phillips, and more.

    This week Dr. Steele and I discuss a recent study that looked at the effectiveness of steady state cardio vs. interval training for fat loss and improvements in body composition. The Meta analysis examined what if any differences there are in improving measures of fat loss with short interval bouts versus longer lower intensity sessions.

    Listen to hear what, if any differences there are between the two training types, and how to incorporate these findings into your own exercise routine.

    Full Study HERE.

    "Resistance Training to Boost Metabolism" with Senior Exercise Physiologist, Maria Hauger

    "Resistance Training to Boost Metabolism" with Senior Exercise Physiologist, Maria Hauger

    In this week's episode of "The Discover Strength Podcast" I sat down with Senior Exercise Physiologist Maria Hauger, from our North East Minneapolis location.

    Maria and I discuss a topic that everyone seems to be interested in. How to burn more calories! Specifically we look at metabolism, energy expenditure and exercise. We dive in to what the research has to say about using resistance training as an effective modality for fat loss. We also dismiss some of the common myths, primarily that traditional "cardio" is a good way to lose fat.

    Research Below:
    Exercise on RMR
    Resting Energy Expenditure
    Training to MF vs. 3-set

    This episode comes just in time for our April Body Comp Challenge! If you're looking for ways to jump start you body composition goals for 2022, Discover Strength's BCC is a fantastic way to kick start your program.

    Anyone interested can sign up HERE, and be sure to ask your trainer about getting started if you haven't already.

    I encourage you to share this episode with friends or loved ones who train on their own, and might be interested in trying a Discover Strength Workout. Send them HERE, to sign up for a complimentary Discover Strength Introductory workout, in studio, or virtually!

    "Getting to Failure & The Value of Supervision" with Senior Exercise Physiologist, Jake Picht

    "Getting to Failure & The Value of Supervision" with Senior Exercise Physiologist, Jake Picht

    In this week's episode of "The Discover Strength Podcast" I sat down with Senior Exercise Physiologist and General Manager of Discover Strength Woodbury, Jake Picht.

    Jake and I discuss a concept known as "Reps In Reserve" and the idea that most trainees (even those with a lot of experience) are not great at predicting when they are approaching failure in their workouts. As we know, reaching or getting close to momentary muscle failure is extremely important to maximize the benefits of efficient, effective resistance training like clients participate in at Discover Strength.

    Jake and I also discuss why this makes supervision in your workouts so important. Not only does the research support that supervision improves your strength training outcomes, it's also one of the best ways to make sure you're working as hard as possible.

    I encourage you to share this episode with friends or loved ones who train on their own, and if they're interested in seeing the value of supervision, send them HERE, to sign up for a complimentary Discover Strength Introductory workout, in studio, or virtually!
