Hey, SBS Radio listeners! Our brand new episode with Luke Johnson (the third part in our Personal Trainer mini-series) is dropping next week. We've finally had time to sit down and record it - apologies for it taking so long.

I didn't want to leave you with another rebroadcast, so... here's an episode from our sister podcast - the De Novo Podcast.

In this episode, we talk to 3DMJ coach and natural bodybuilder Dr Eric Helms. Our questions to him include: 

  1. Your recent YouTube series is entitled Anecdotes and Observations - when it comes to making your fitness your own, why are anecdotes and observations so important?
  2. On the topic of anecdotes - there was a fascinating discussion between you and Joe Klemczewski on Facebook recently regarding training frequency. Could you summarise that discussion for us?
  3. Recent data on periodisation have shown that maybe it's time to reconsider some of the reasons for periodising someone's training - what would you say are the main benefits to a periodised approach to training?
  4. One of the main aims of science is to test hypotheses - what was the most surprising fitness-related hypothesis that you've seen either supported or scuppered after scientific investigation?
  5. Do you have any favourite studies out of all the ones you've reviewed for MASS?
  6. What would you advise for someone looking to become more 'evidence-based' with their fitness?

Our final episode in the fitness dogma series tackles powerlifting specific dogma! Chalk up, and let's go 9/9 on these. 

  •  "Lower your hips" on deadlift critiques
  • You should care about bodyweight-based strength goals
  • Powerlifters do not need any kind of cardiovascular training.
  • Lifting weights faster = cardio
  • Certain exercises ccannotbe performed for higher reps. Front squats and deadlifts especially
  • The idea that focusing on assistance stuff is (with exceptions of rare cases) should be 75% of the work out and the actual competitive movements only 15-25%
  • People that immediately recommend 5/3/1 or 5x5 without any knowledge of a person's training history.
  • Your total on the big 3 is the only measure of fitness that really matters. 

If you've not left us a review or rating yet, we'd really love it if you did.

Episode number 2 in our Fitness Dogma mini-series, and we move onto general training dogma!

In this semi-bumper episode, we examine the following statements: 

  • You should only deadlift once or twice per week, max.
  • You shouldn't train two days running.
  • Bro splits are the best way to train.
  • Every person should train particular movements. 
  • Hip hinge movements are magical.
  • Cardio is ONLY for fat loss.
  • Squats and deadlifts are all you need for your core training.
  • If your form isn't PERFECT you need to go back to an empty bar and learn how to move.
  • Your knees shouldn't go past your toes when squatting.

(Rebroadcast from October 2017)

We had a bonus episode in May asking for some of the worst dogmatic beliefs you've heard in the industry and we've decided to bring it back.

This first episode is going to be more about nutrition, general fitness will be episode two and the third episode will be more strength sports based.

Hold on to something tight, because this is about to get wild.

While you're listening find us on social media, we're @ShredByScience on most social media and you can find us on Facebook by searching Shredded By Science. The Judd is @LozJudd on Snapchat and @SBS_Lawrence on Instagram.

Also, the Eat, Train Progress group on Facebook is full of lovely people! Join us!

You can also email us - info@shreddedbyscience.com.

Here's the lowdown on this episode!

01:55 - Sara Jones says "one piece of dogma you see a lot that shouldn't be used as a blanket statement is you cannot gain muscle in a calorie deficit"

10:05 - Bas' has heard people saying "you need one or more grams per pound of bodyweight to gain or maintain muscle"

16:43 - Bas comes back with another dogma "you can't get strong on a vegan diet"

21:40 - Zachary says some people say "one macronutrient is the issue for fat gain in America"

52:26 - Jer Chapman brings the dogma "people who say calories in v calories out is all that matters"

Mar 7, 2018

In this special bonus episode, I introduce you to our brand new podcast - the De Novo Podcast, from De Novo Supplements. Enjoy!

  1. You do a bunch of "pondering" about your approach to lifting, and also others' approaches to lifting as a coach. What first sparked your current interest in sports psychology? 
  2. Let's talk a little bit about biases and cognitive dissonance. Can you talk a little bit about what they are, and why they're generally considered (esp. in the case of cognitive dissonance) to be negative? 
  3. Are there any instances for an athlete that biases and CD might have a net positive effect?
  4. What have been the most impactful lessons you've learnt in your research and also practice as a coach? 
  5. I've observed that athletes can fall into one of two camps - the 'shut up and lift' camp, and the 'overanalyzer' camp. How does your coaching approach differ for these two types? 
  6. How important do you think self-talk and the exact semantics/wording you use in your self-talk are?
  7. Are you implementing anything new in your Arnold prep right now?

Bryce and TSA are coming to the UK and Ireland for a seminar tour from March 31st - April 8th. Check out http://thestrengthathlete.com/tsa-seminars/ for more information! 

About Bryce

Bryce Lewis is a competitive, drug-free elite powerlifter in the 83-105kg weight classes.  He holds records in both the USA Powerlifting federation (USAPL) and International Powerlifting Federation (IPF), and strives to promote the comprehension and love of powerlifting training throughout the world. Through his success as an elite lifter, Bryce’s dream is to pass on his knowledge and skills through The Strength Athlete (TSA) powerlifting coaching services online in addition to his YouTube Channel and Facebook fan page.  By these efforts, Bryce hopes to help raw, drug-free powerlifting gain more prominence and acceptance internationally.

Under 3D Muscle Journey (3DMJ) Coach, Eric Helms, Bryce was introduced to powerlifting, following a collegiate and high school passion for volleyball and a five year period competing in natural bodybuilding.  He immediately fell in love with the newfound sport.  Lifting heavy was always fun, but powerlifting allowed him to express his desires for competition, application of advanced strength training techniques, and achievements through measured progress.  Even now, Bryce remains an integral part of Team 3DMJ and has adapted their principles of dedication, desire, and discipline as his own.  In addition to training services, Eric also mentors Bryce through an ongoing 3DMJ internship.

Present

In addition to his successful career as an athlete, Bryce has always strived for academic and intellectual attainment.  He graduated from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2010 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Philosophy.  Currently, he plans to continue coaching athletes from around the world through TSA, and help more athletes develop the tools for success.  Bryce passionately advocates for the application and love of the sciences, evidence-based philosophies, and skepticism of pseudoscience.  In his spare time, he explores a variety of art forms from pencil and pen drawings to graphic design to culinary arts in the kitchen.

Bryce resides in Fort Collins, Colorado with his chocolate labrador, Sequoia.  After winning USAPL Raw Nationals two years in a row, Bryce heads to IPF World Championships in Calgary, Canada in 2018.

Just quickly, before we begin - I have 3 spots that have opened up for online coaching, and I thought I would offer them to podcast listeners first, as - let’s face it - you guys are awesome. If you’re maybe a bit confused as to how to implement some of the training or nutrition principles we’ve discussed on here, or maybe you’re a bit overwhelmed by all the information out there and you’re struggling to find a way of training that you’re truly happy with, I’m here to help. My coaching is pretty simple - together, we devise training programmes and nutrition guidelines that fit with your lifestyle, and our weekly check-ins are specifically designed to help reassure you that you’re doing the right thing. If this is you, get in touch. Drop me an email at lawrence@shreddedbyscience.com, and say you’ve come from the podcast. I may even offer you a podcast-exclusive discount.

In our final episode of January, we take a look at thriving. Many of you will have started 2018 with the aim of making this year more amazing than ever - so in this episode, we talk to my good friend Nicola Hobbs about just that. 

We cover: 

  • Thriving – what is it, why is it important, why it is important in training/business/relationships/life, THRIVE model (from the book)
  • Positive Psychology - why working in is as important as working out, why mental health is still a taboo
  • Yoga – what is it, benefits, how it can help in gym/work/life, how it changed my life, flow state/samadhi 
  • Meditation and mindfulness – what is it, why it’s important (especially with anxiety and distraction caused by social media), how to do it, explore why more people don’t do it 
  • Spirituality and science – blending an eastern and western approach, what is spirit, why is spiritual health just as important as mental and physical health
  • Key topics from the book Thrive Through Yoga – anxiety, body image, perfectionism, letting go (and any other chapters you think are relevant)
  • Simple things to do to make your experience of life more amazing

We talk about: 

  • Why do you lead a vegan lifestyle?
  • What do you feel are the biggest misconceptions surrounding veganism?
  • Why do you think that so many people who eat animal products look down on veganism?
  • What are your top tips for those looking to go vegan without their gym performance or physique suffering?

In this episode, I chat to Nicola Joyce about her month of veganism in 2017. 

I ask Nicola: 

  • What made you decide to go vegan for a month?
  • To what extent did you “go vegan”?
  • Were there any unexpected surprises during the month?
  • Did you find the vegan month affected your hormonal cycle?
  • You wrote quite a bit about the challenge of getting enough protein - what were the main struggles and how did you try to get around them?
  • What exactly is seitan, and how on earth did you make it?
  • What were the main things you learnt from going vegan for a month?
  • Will you adapt your diet at all going forward?
  • What are your thoughts on eating entirely vegan for a whole month, vs experimenting with including more plant-based food in your day-to-day diet?

You can find Nicola's blog where she details her vegan experiment at https://thefitwriter.wordpress.com/the-vegan-month/

In January, we're going to be focusing on one of the hottest trends of last year - veganism - to coincide with the new trend of "Veganuary". This involves going vegan for the month of January, for any one of a number of reasons: environmental, ethical or health-based. 

In this introductory episode, I have an informal chat with OG SBS Radio co-host Emma Storey-Gordon, as we discuss our own NYRs and give a broad overview of whether we think Veganuary is a good NYR for you.

Dec 22, 2017

In this episode, I chat to Dr Rachna Patel. Dr Patel is a physician, specialising in the field of medicinal marijuana and practising in California. We dig into marijuana's mechanisms of action, discuss its role in chronic pain relief, and tackle the age-old topic of the munchies.

  • Veganism

  • Increased overall fitness knowledge amongst the general population

Welcome to this week’s SBS Radio episode - My Life With Anorexia.

A report in 2015 estimated that more than 725,000 people in the UK are affected by an eating disorder, with roughly 75-90% of those being female.

BEAT, a UK-based eating disorder charity, estimates that of those with eating disorders, 10% were anorexic, 40% were bulimic and the rest fall into the EDNOS category which included BED.

Concrete statistics are hard to come by - but what is clear is that eating disorders can be devastating, are on the rise, and are still not very well-understood. Whilst this podcast episode is by no means going to be a comprehensive guide to anorexia, I wanted to have an open, candid discussion with a couple of people regarding their experiences with anorexia and other eating disorders.

First, we have Polly Hale of the Fit Mum Formula, who was hospitalised 3 times between the ages of 18 and 22 due to her anorexia. In the second half of the podcast we’ll hear from Matt Stranberg, a registered dietitian and strength and conditioning specialist who currently is working with the Walden GOALS programme, who treat competitive athletes experiencing disordered eating behaviours.

I just wanted to thank her for being so candid and open with me. What you’re about to hear covers a particularly painful part of Polly’s life - so her willingness to discuss it on record doesn’t go unnoticed.

More about Polly: http://www.thefitmumformula.com/

07:06 - Did the tragedies early in your life lead you down your life's path?

Happy Friday dear listener. As an end of the week gift to you, Lawrence is bringing this episode back from last year.

Today Lawrence is joined by SBS Coach, SBS Academy Tutor and Lift the Bar Mentor, Stuart Aitken.

It's a historic episode as Stuart is our first ever Scotsman on the pod. Lawrence and Stuart actually recorded this while holding hands over Hadrian's Wall.

Stuart is here to discuss the importance of being evidence based and how it might be really important to PTs, but not that important to clients.

Quick audio quality note. Lawrence's mic inexplicably goes a bit odd towards the end of the show, sorry guys.

Like at the end of Indiana Jones when the Ark is opened and it melts the faces of those who look into it, the SBS Radio Archive is full of knowledge so powerful it can only be trusted to a select few.

Lawrence is joined by Chad Dolan today. Chad is the latest and greatest member of the Academy team and gives us an introduction as to who he is.

Hold onto your earphones and keep children well clear. This episode features strong language and stronger opinions.

Lawrence and Patrick are here today with the debut episode of Fireside Rants. 

The guys are a bit rattled as someone has come into the Eat, Train, Progress Facebook page and been less than brilliant about their attitude. As such Patrick isn't a happy boy.

In this episode, the two take turns to take a swing at a few of their pet peeves online -Functional Patterns, Personal Trainers claiming that they can eliminate pain, and irresponsible advice about medication all receive a lashing in this episode. In the emotional outpour, the two get into the habit of talking over each other making timestamping this episode a bit more difficult.

As an added bonus, though, there is a point where Patrick gets so annoyed he don't talk his words so good no more.

Today Lawrence is looking at a big question. What does it actually take to become a successful personal trainer?

0629: Continued professional development.

0752: Get good at personal training first.

0922: Have a client centred focus.

1039: People skills.

1447: Start loving the process.

The three guys gather around the microphone to talk about the six levels of the training pyramid. What's that you say? We're not going to tell you here, you best download this episode and subscribe!

Once again Lawrence is joined by some fascinating guests in this episode of SBS Radio.

Mike Zourdos is an assistant professor at Florida Atlantic University and is the director of the muscle physiology lab there.

Eric is also a body building coach with a focus on Science based coaching.

The three guys gather around the microphone to talk about the six levels of the training pyramid. What's that you say? We're not going to tell you here, you best download this episode and subscribe!

Lawrence is joined by Kris King in today's episode where you'll get jealous of Kris' job.  

Once Kris introduces himself and he'll start to spill the beans on Obstacle Course Racing, and what you should do before you sign up for one.

Just a quick note, when speaking to us, Kris was on his phone so the audio quality isn't the best and unfortunately the call seemed to drop once or twice so you'll notice Kris seems to skip a few words in a sentence occasionally. Sorry about that.

If you want to find Kris online you can find him on Facebook as Kris King, Kris' page is Project Breaking Point and on Twitter go follow @CoachKingy

Since you were little, you've heard that eating too much salt can be bad for you. You've heard that you should avoid "salty" foods or that foods high in salt are "bad."

But you're still not sure what counts as a "high salt" diet. You also work out, and you know that you lose some salt through sweat. So is it okay to eat more?

Will adding a little salt to your diet increase your risk of heart disease? No, not really, and we explain why in this podcast. You'll learn why people think eating lots of salt is bad for you, and what the evidence really says.

You can't build muscle forever. Eventually, you start gaining a lot more fat, and the gains just aren't worth it. But does that mean you should always cut body fat before trying to build muscle? That's what one of our listeners asked:

"I have often heard that no matter what your long term goal is, you would benefit from "getting lean first". From what I have picked up this has to do with better insulin sensitivity, lower inflammation, better hormone balance = better nutrition partitioning.
 
Is this something you would support? If so, could you point me to somewhere I can read more about this?"
There is some merit to the idea of getting lean before you bulk, but it's not the best idea in all circumstances. You'll learn why in this podcast.

You're leaner than you've been in a long time.

Now that you can see your abs, you're ready to think about gaining muscle.

You know you have to eat more calories than you burn to grow. But you've heard horror stories of people "eating to get big" and packing on thirty pounds of fat in the process.

You've heard that if you use the right nutrient timing strategies and eat the right combination of macronutrients, you can "lean bulk." You like the idea of adding muscle while losing fat or keeping the same body fat percentage.

The problem is that it doesn't really work. At all. You'll learn why people think this is a good idea, and why it really isn't, in this podcast.

The science is clear - people who weigh themselves regularly lose more weight and keep it off better.

But, it's easy for this healthy, normal habit to become something you dread. It becomes a constant reminder that you're not doing well at something that's important to you. It puts your focus on losing weight when you may want to think about more important things.

So, how do you use the scale to lose weight in a healthy way without driving yourself nuts? That's what you'll learn in this episode of SBS Radio.

To lose weight, you have to eat fewer calories than you burn. 

 

When people start counting calories to get leaner, however, they often don’t lose fat. 

 

So what’s the problem? 

 

If calories really mattered, why doesn’t everyone lose weight when they track calories?

 

Usually, it’s a problem of “calorie awareness.” People don’t understand how many calories are in different foods, so when they track it’s not accurate. Not even close.

 

At first, everyone sucks at tracking how much they eat and how many calories they burn. But over time, with practice, you can get much better. Eventually, you’ll be able to accurately track your calorie intake, or even lose weight without tracking calories. 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn how people usually screw up calorie counting and how you can do better.

The best diet and training program in the world is worthless if you don’t do it.

 

Most of the time, you’re told to just “buckle down and do it,” or some other form of “grinding” through the problem. 

 

The truth is that motivation is more complex than flipping open your phone and looking at fitness models on Instagram.

 

In this episode, Armi, Emma and Lawrence break down the psychological science behind what causes people to take action. You’ll learn how to find the right kind of motivation for your goals and background. 

 

You’ll also learn:

 

How to find the right balance between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

 

How taking fitness too seriously can hurt your progress and make you less happy.

 

Why “fitspiration,” like you’ll find on Instagram, can be helpful or harmful in the right context. 

 

How to decide if working with a personal trainer would help you reach your fitness goals.

 

How to get back on track if your motivation wanes.
