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.

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"

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.
