    #128: Doug Brignole - The 20 Best Resistance Exercises for Physique Development

    Doug Brignole is a former winner of Mr. America and Mr. Universe bodybuilding competition, with a 43-year trajectory in the sport. He is also an expert in BIOMECHANICS, and the author of a ground-breaking new book called "The Physics of Resistance Exercise", which is turning the traditional weight training paradigm upside. Doug is the first person in the history of the fitness industry to outline the 16 biomechanical factors which determine the value of an exercise -- allowing us to evaluate the productivity, efficiency, and safety of each exercise. This allows us to select only the best exercises, and skip the exercises that have low value.
