Making Gains as You Get Older | ETP#125

8/22/2023
This week on Eat Train Prosper we are covering why you should not give up on your body composition or gain making goals just because you’re into your late 30’s, 40’s, or even 50’s. Many of the commonly held beliefs about plummeting ability to achieve significant hypertrophy are simply not supported by the evidence. We cover which areas to put your emphasis and efforts into, and what are the ACTUAL limitations that have been limiting your previous efforts.

Glute Training: What the Research Says | ETP#121

7/25/2023
Bryan provides updates around his decision to focus more on cardio and what changes will take place in his approach to lifting. Aaron discusses fatigue and a need to deload. Then we get into the topic for the day, in which we breakdown two new studies on glute development. Both studies include Hip Thrusts and apparently demonstrate how great they are. We question some aspects of study design and how there are some important confounding considerations in both studies. We finish with some practical takeaways, and whether we can use anything from these studies to influence program design.

Results: 6-Month Single Arm Training Experiment | ETP#111

After 6 long months of training arms (biceps / triceps) on his left arm ONLY, Bryan shares with us the results of his pre and post testing.
