Today’s episode is a special edition of the 3DMJ Podcast in which you will hear three separate discussions by Eric Helms, and special guests Greg Nuckols and Mike Zourdos.
The first discussion titled, “A Glimmer Of Hope For Weekend Warriors” led by Greg Nuckols, addresses a study which looked at consecutive versus nonconsecutive training days and the differences (or lack of) in progress between two splits. The second discussion, “If It Fits Your Macros May Be Better For Your Micros Too” led by Eric Helms, is about a study which looked at the differences in micronutrient intake between individuals following a traditional bodybuilding diet and those following an IIFYM approach. The final discussion, “Intra-Session Load Reduction: Same Gains, Less Effort” led by Mike Zourdos, examines a study which looked at planned load reductions as a strategy to increase training volume while decreasing perception of effort.
This episode is packed with takeaways valuable to all strength and physique athletes, coaches, and bodybuilding/powerlifting enthusiasts. Not only will you get the practical application of these three studies, you will also get an inside look into the thought processes behind why Eric, Greg, and Mike came to the conclusions they did.
