Don't forget, as Lawrence said in this episode, The 2017 Strength and Physique Conference is in July, it features Eric Helms and Dr Mike Zourdos and you can get your tickets from shreddedbyscience.com/conference.

Let's get into the episode:

01:13 - From Tom McDonald - Do fifty year olds need to change their type of workouts, do too many even bother even when their joints are screaming? 

09:06 - From Andrew Doueihi - What are you opinions on the concept of myofascial release?

17:35 - From Amber Joy - What are some good rules of thumb, starting points or sources of information for a general population person who wants to learn about counting macros for fat loss? 

20:50 - From Sylvia Hua (sorry if we spelt it wrong!) - I read that taking creatine can cause weight gain due to water retention. For me I see a direct cause and effect of taking creatine of monohydrate and weight loss and increased visability of ab lines. 

25:50 - From Stephen Dallas - When performing a powerlifting arch for bench press what is the difference in pec activation compared to a somewhat natural arch?

32:44 - From Tim Garret - For a lifter that is a long way out from a competition how far away would you move from the competition lifts?

48:23 - From Mitch Ables - How long should you spend on a program before altering exercises or intensity/volume?

03:11 - Correction - it's bullshit.

20:30 - Counter-Dogma - "There is no anabolic window"

25:44 - "I was told by a trainer that it's absolutely necessary that I start foam rolling and that it would make me immediately stronger"

47:13 - "The 1,200 standard for weight loss"

52:00 - "Oh yeah, chemicals"

Lawrence is joined by Dr. Nova Deighton-Smith, Leah Boepple and Andrea Valdez in this week's SBS Radio.

This episode's topic is a very serious one. Dr. Nova Deighton-Smith's research looked into Fitspiration. The kind of posts that flood social media and how they can be so destructive. Leah Boepple discusses a study looking into how pro-anorexic websites can make people feel worse about themselves and research into Thinspiration websites.

In the second half of this episode Lawrence speaks to Andrea Valdez of 3DMJ who looks at this topic through the lense of being a bodybuilding coach.
