Greg Nuckols is one of the most well respected evidence based researchers in the fitness industry. He is the founder of the popular website StrongerByScience.com, and also of the monthly newsletter MASS (Monthly Application for Strength Sport) where he reviews recent scientific studies and then translates them to where regular people (like you and me) can understand them and apply their principles.
In this episode, Greg and I talk about a lot of interesting topics that are all backed by science and will get you thinking about things you’ve probably never thought about before.
