Reverse Dieting Strategies | ETP#154

In Episode 154 we discuss choosing the right reverse dieting strategy and the pros and cons associated with each. Reverse dieting involves gradually increasing calorie intake after a period of dieting to find a new maintenance level. We explore two strategies: the hard and fast approach, where calories are increased immediately, and the incremental and slower approach, where calories are increased gradually over time. We cover the psychological and physiological factors to consider when choosing a reverse dieting strategy, as well as the impact on training. This episode provides a comprehensive overview of reverse dieting and offers insights for dieters looking to transition out of a dieting phase in the best way for themselves.TIMESTAMPS0:00 - Life/episode updates27:33 - The concept of the reverse diet30:45 - Strategy One: Hard and Fast31:37 - Strategy Two: Incremental and Slow(er)34:54 - Advantages of Strategy One37:54 - Potential drawbacks of Strategy One45:53 - Pros and Cons of Strategy Two Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

We think that you will find some of the outcomes here rather thought provoking, as did we.

Variety OR Repeat Everything? | ETP#133

Which is best? Rotating exercises, rep schemes, and intensities week to week? Keeping all of the aforementioned variables identical? Or is it possibly some combination between the two?

Making Gains as You Get Older | ETP#125

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

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.

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.

Things That Matter. And Things That Matter, Less | ETP#108

This week we have a fun conversation where we break down our hand-selected facets of training and nutrition that should be considered compulsory for building your best attainable physique. Then we further categorize into things where overemphasis is placed, which we are labeling “things that matter not as much.” Finally wrapping up with things that may matter, usually based on context, per usual.

Minicuts vs. Traditional Cuts | ETP#107

In this episode, we discuss mini cuts versus traditional cuts for fat loss and when might be more appropriate to use each. Mini cuts are shorter-term periods of aggressive calorie deficit, while traditional cuts involve longer periods of time, at a less aggressive rate of loss. We cover the Pros and the Cons for each respective approach, and provide examples of when we’ve used minicut’s with clients in the past and why we might use them in the future. We also discuss how one's age, existing responsibilities, lifestyle, and goals can affect which method is best for them. Give this episode a go for all of our insights on mini cuts vs. traditional cuts for your fat loss.

A Conversation on Blood Work and Health | ETP#105

In this episode, we discuss recent blood work results and concerns about Aaron’s genetic predisposition markers. We share our experiences with traditional doctors and the challenges we faced to find a healthcare professional who understands both our fitness and medical needs. We underscore the importance of understanding our bodies and being proactive with our health, including preventative testing and lifestyle changes. We consider the possibility of potentially trying unconventional management approaches and eventually shifting away from pure hypertrophy-focused training to improve our health markers. We also talk about the trend towards private, more health-focused care and the need for doctors who can bridge the gap between traditional medicine and fitness. In the next episode, we plan to discuss our goals and forecasting for the future.

Setbacks + January Q&A Part 2 | ETP#103

This week we cover the ironic timing of lower body injuries we both sustained this past week and our immediate action plans for making the best of the situations. After that we round out the remaining questions from last week’s January Q&A episode.Instagram Questions:When doing cardio, should I do it by minutes or calories burned?How will this new approach to “cardio for healthspan” play into the spring cut?Do you really need to consume fewer carbs with insulin resistance or just fewer kcals?I’m an early lifter 5:30AM, I’ve started incorporating pre-carbs, do I need pre protein?When I travel with friends (eg skiing), it is hard to hit protein. Is it ok if protein is low for 3-4 days.Should we keep RIR and weekly volume per muscle the same in a meso? Or alter it every week?Rec on app or system to log workouts, reps, notes, RIR etc.. Tips get over the fear of the cut… Lose BF % and feel small, makes me want to bulk againHow the F is your HRV 227? What do I need to change in life?Do you do any hot/cold therapies?If so, how do you incorporate into hypertrophy? Can you explain why it’s better to hit the short muscle lengths first?What do you guys think is more significant when training if your goal is hypertrophy? Training the muscle until failure or time under tension? See a lotta back and forth around this and curious to hear your guys take!

Evidence-Based Nihilism | ETP#100

Research has dramatically helped to drive the industry forward over the last 10+ years. Thanks to this research we now feel quite confident about some things, such as longer rest periods are better for hypertrophy, frequency is mostly a means of partitioning volume etc… But there are many studies which have extremely small effect sizes or state conclusions where it doesn’t seem to matter what we do. Such examples might be: Training with “lower” reps vs “higher” reps or progressing with reps vs progressing with weight. When it comes to training volume, it’s often stated that more is better up to a point. Is that true for everyone? This episode is about going deeper into these studies, and understanding that these things very much matter FOR THE INDIVIDUAL (even if they don’t necessarily matter on a population level).

In our first episode of 2023 we take the high road on typical January first nutrition advice. After covering some year end updates and some of our own personal outlooks for 2023, we detail one training question: “Any reasoning (practical or theoretical) for why certain rep ranges would work better for shortened vs lengthened movements?”, before diving into our less commonly discussed approaches for making sustainable, long-term changes in the new year.

2022 Year In Review | ETP#98

After a week off, we have a number of big updates. Bryan discusses new programs starting in January on “Bryan’s Program” as well as new cycles across the Paragon family of programs. Then Aaron drops an amazing new service/product he’s been working on with Jackson Peos. The main topic for the day is a review of some things we’ve changed our minds on this last year. These are not necessarily things where we completely flipped 180 degrees, but more like an updated perspective. Topics include reverse dropsets, lengthened bias approaches, cardio, metabolic cycles, and training volume.  Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Optimizing Your Own Nutrition | ETP#97

Today’s episode is on the topic of taking an Individualized approach to optimizing your own nutrition. Within the personal pursuit of optimizing you may very likely find that certain approaches might end up being different from the generally recommended “population level” averages or suggestions even from meta analyses and systematic reviews. These help us provide great places to start, but you likely will find that testing for yourself ends up being the most optimal approach. In this episode we cover a few very common places to look and evaluate.

Minimalist Training: How Low Can You Go? | ETP#96

This is a discussion around training volume (and effort) with a twist. Instead of looking at it from the perspective of trying to MAXIMIZE gains, what if we look at it from the viewpoint of “minimum effective volume?” (the least you can do to still make progress over time). Or to take it even further, the “maintenance volume” (where you would not gain or lose muscle). Does the literature provide us guidance? We delve into a bit of the research, as well our personal experience to have an in depth conversation to discover HOW LOW CAN YOU GO?  Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

This is definitely one of the most fun episodes we record each month and look forward to helping our listeners better understand various principles within the health, training, and nutrition space. We hope you learned something new this month!Instagram Questions:1. For shortened biased exercise, is it better to overload the short range the most, or have a drop-off in the short position to better facilitate a hold at that position? 2. How do you handle having the flu?3. How has your recovery been post-cut? 4. Palm towards or palm down for face pulls? 5. Results/thoughts on the one-arm training experiment so far?6. 8 weeks pulldowns, then changed to BB row for 8 weeks. Home gym based. Good idea? 7. Hypertrophy - what is the difference between mental failure on a rep and muscle failure? 8. What is the most optimal/effective for lateral raises… DB’s, cables or machines?9. Overhead Press and Lateral Delts. How much do they get worked? Meaningfully?10. Does colder weather increase NEAT / Brown fat activity? 11. Is there any accuracy to the notion that a walk after eating increases glucose uptake?12. What does tracking ALL macros give, that tracking just calories and protein doesn’t? Assume a healthy range.13. Leg Curls - Should I just do the seated version all the time, even if lying is programmed? What’s the deal with standing leg curls?

Arguments For & Against Biomechanics 2 | ETP#91

Today on the podcast we are discussing arguments both FOR and AGAINST placing an emphasis on biomechanics in your training and programming. There are a lot of discussions surrounding biomechanics as it is a super hot topic right now. We found that many of the discussions were one-sided and didn’t quite portray both sides of the arguments equally. So that is exactly what we decided to try and do today for you. Keynotes from today's episode:Biomechanics/Anti-BiomechanicsBiomechanics is the study of the structure, function, and motion of the mechanical aspects of biological systems, at any level from whole organisms to organs, cells, and cell organelles, using the methods of mechanics. Biomechanics is a branch of biophysics.Arguments against biomechanics:People have been getting yoked for decades with free weights If it worked for Arnold…Barbell basics Just work hard (feels like biomechanics sort of goes against the way it was “meant to be” or whatever nonsense, of just smashing weight)Pull-ups for back Biomechanic-optimized movements aren’t as “subjectively taxing”You need to do much fewer movements if you pick the big hitters. Isolating more stuff means you have to do more movements Arguments for biomechanics:Everything is biomechanics. Even if you try to optimize a barbell movement Long muscle lengths = need to find where it is most lengthened Minimizing joint issues / nonexistent since “switching”Learning/understanding why certain movements produce an incredible stimulus and others don’tIncreasing tension on the desired tissuesHow do you know people wouldn’t have been more jacked with better movements?Improved program design. Less redundancy, better volume distribution.Thanks for listening!  Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

October Instagram Q&A | ETP#89

The monthly Instagram Q&A episode is here for October. We had a lot of fun running through these questions and were really able to provide quality contextual feedback and solutions to the following questions.During reverse, cals go up, and cardio down. Increase cals fast or weekly? Is this good?Opinion on interset stretchingHow do I know that I’m recovered for a specific body part?

Do Rep Ranges Matter For Building Muscle? | ETP#88

In this episode, we discuss rep ranges for hypertrophy. So long as you are training hard do they even matter? Some people will say they do not matter. However, here on Eat Train Prosper, it’s quite clear that making blanket statements isn’t how we do things. So we cover the commonly bracketed rep ranges, the pros and cons for each and in what circumstances we think the rep ranges matter in pursuit of gains and other common weight lifting situations.  Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Is there evidence suggesting that some whole foods are better than shakes?2. Thoughts on nutrition protocol for high school wrestlers? 4 months of 1.5% BW loss per week.3. During bulk do we need to decrease fibre from fruits/veggies because of high carbs?4. Is there a difference between optimal nutrition for longevity vs. strength training?5. Can only sleep if I’m dead tired. Do you have tips for better sleep and how to avoid “overthinking” before bedtime?6.

August Instagram Q&A | ETP#84

The (mostly) monthly Instagram Q&A episode is here for August. We had a lot of fun running through these questions and were really able to provide quality contextual feedback and solutions to the following questions.Have you tried the lengthened drop sets as their own set? i.e. taking a full rest before the set? 5 weeks post cut, 12 lbs up, but can't lose weight on lowest calories of cut. Metabolic adaptation tips? If you could do the training career all over again, with the current knowledge, how would you do it? You seem to always do leg extensions before compound leg movements. Isn’t this significantly limiting mechanical tension on your big compounds?Do you ever program movements that aren’t 10/10 for hypertrophy, like lateral lunges and loaded carries?Is there a correlation between a larger surplus and larger muscle gain? Similar to the larger deficit, larger fat loss?Template for weight loss/surplus phases? (i.e. 3 mth, 6 mth)Back tweak, at a conference, got covid, 3 weeks off the gym.

Making Sense of the Effective Reps Model | ETP#81

In today’s episode Bryan and Aaron have an honest conversation about some of the ambiguity sometimes found even in evidence-based research info. Specifically, surrounding the stimulating/effective reps model for hypertrophy.It appears that multiple experts looking at the same exact data sets will come to varying versions of conclusions. Which can then become very confusing for the lifters and hypertrophy-seekers downstream of this information. We weigh in on some of the more seemingly conflicting points and provide our ultimate takeaways to help you maximize your pursuit of gains without incurring extraneous fatigue.Thanks for listening. Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Finding Personal Balance in Pursuit of Goals | ETP#80

This week’s episode is about finding that proverbial middle-ground or “balance” for each of us. One of the most common misunderstandings for many attempting dieters, new lifters, their significant others and family members is being limited to black and white thinking.In this episode, we use a swinging pendulum as a metaphor to walk through spending time at both “extremes” before settling into a balanced middle ground.Give this one a listen to better help understand the roles seasons and cycles of periodization play in helping you find that balance for yourself.Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Heads up! In the introduction of this episode, we were planning a conversation around dealing with training injuries and setbacks. But as our conversation unfolded there was a lot of great context in the conversation on the backend of Bryan’s recently wrapped up calorie deficit and photoshoot.Specific periods of nutritional periodization such as dieting to uncommonly low levels of body fat and attempting to game time a physique for a photoshoot provide excellent opportunities to have conversations about the intricacies of approaches and execution.In next week’s episode, we will release the episode on handling training injuries and setbacks.Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Evidence, Anecdote, & Personal Preference | ETP#75

Today’s episode topic is all about how we approach coaching clients, and in what ways we account for these three components: evidence-based, personal preference, and anecdote. Do we tend to use all three equally? Or do we put more credence in one more?We break this topic into our two main pillars, of course, training and nutrition. And detail our coaching approaches respectively for each.This episode ends up being a very productive and insightful conversation into the limitations of applying some research, and the power of anecdote and preference when you’re finding yourself at the far ends of the spectrum.Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Physiological vs. Psychological Signals to Deload | ETP#74

We kick off this week’s episode of Eat Train Prosper with Bryan detailing some of the challenges this diet has presented him. Then, we move into some not-so-commonly discussed factors influencing when you might take a deload. Psychological fatigue versus waiting for a loss of performance.We also talk a little bit about approaches for ending “very hard” sets. Grinding through reps vs. cutting a rep once momentum stops and leveraging lengthened partials. Then we wrap up with some points around the various utility shortened overload movements can have outside the context of maximizing hypertrophy and what to look for in knowing you’re recovered to train again as your training age progresses.Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

We go into depth on the reasoning behind each of these top selections and important considerations for each. This episode ranges from gaining based on your training age, how much muscle you are attempting to put on, what changes to your training would be more practical during gaining, and what you should be considering from a nutrition standpoint to make the most out of the months ahead.

June Instagram Q&A | ETP#72

This week we are back with another monthly edition of the Instagram Q&A episode format. This is definitely a favorite recurring format that we will continue to do. The questions covered this week:Training with slow perfect reps with stretch/contract versus fast explosive reps with more weight?What courses do you feel a trainer should do or the best ways to educate himself?Do you think there is a per-session training stimulus that must be achieved within that given in order to see gains in hypertrophy? For example, is it possible that one could experience faster gains by doing 3 sets in one session rather than 1 set spread out over 3 days of the week? From a beginner's standpoint, would it be more beneficial to focus on the big lifts? If so, what role would machines and cables play in a beginner's workout plan? If one’s diet consists of beef/chicken would adding fats from nuts be beneficial? What are examples of metabolic training?Optimal quad hypertrophy 2x/week programming?After a 12-week cut, is it better to do a maintenance phase or start a lean bulk?Short/intense full-body session almost every day? Like 2 sets per body part in different splits?I like benching for hypertrophy, but seems like everyone on the internet is saying it’s terrible?How do you determine whether the arm path of a given exercise is good or bad and lines up with joints? Do either of you do one-off consults, or just pay for an hour of your time? Thanks for listening! Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Going From Intermediate to Advanced| ETP#67

What are the key factors to break past the intermediate lifter phase? It seems that many get stuck in the lifetime intermediate stage.

Taking Ownership of Your Own Health | ETP#65

This week on the Eat Train Prosper podcast: taking ownership of your own health. Bryan and Aaron go into some details of a recent set of labwork from Bryan. Aaron covers some interesting findings of Bryan’s Testosterone levels, and we explore potential reasonings as to why and why not this might matter. Aaron shares thoughts around why it’s important to take ownership of your own internal health and to get things looked at. We share our anecdotal findings of subjective positives of the recent Metabolic Training we are both currently performing. Then we wrap up with a discussion around some of the complicated reasonings as to why pulling conclusions from emerging research studies might be problematic and what could be a more appropriate path.Thanks for listening! ✌️Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Metabolic Training | ETP#63

We kick off today’s episode with a small fix to an answer we provided during episode #61 Q&A regarding adding additional sets as a method of increasing stimulus. We also touch on RP’s “Compound-Isolation Sandwich Training” and decide whether cycling carbohydrates during periods of overfeeding has applicable utility.In coordination with the upcoming Evolved and Paragon training cycles that Bryan provides, we cover what you need to know about metabolic training, whether systemic or local. And how these might be incorporated into your training.Bryan Updates: 1. Diet starting 2. Metabolic Cycle (discuss later in the episode)3. Blood Work / DEXA 4. Mouth procedure 5. Nasal breathing6. HRV questions/insights *Random readings super low; scheduled readings super high 7. Interesting tidbit on Casein absorption speed (from SBS)Aaron Updates:1. Tweaked something in my back last Wednesday, haven’t trained since.Oddly, the most painful thing is being seated2. Had an opportunity to get paid to give a presentation to a team of nutrition coaches.3. First time as a paid educator.The correct URL for Beardsley's post: Original Question from 3 episodes ago: Do you consider adding a set for an exercise as a way to “increase stimulus?” Just add a few sets as needed over the course of a meso. Kind of like what Chris Beardsley put together in this infographichttps://www.instagram.com/p/CYtjD7hgZAJ/Additional Q from an Instagram DM I recently watched this video by Dr Mike called compound isolation sandwich training: https://youtu.be/UhLCTU_6iFYThe jist was to do a compound first, then isolation, and then another compound with more than one degree of freedom E.g. hack squat, leg extension, then barbell squat. He said that having more than one degree of freedom was important such that other muscles couldn't take over and reduce load to target muscles, in this example the extra degrees of freedom from the squat ensures the quads are still working hard whereas, on a leg press, the glutes may take over and do most of the work reducing quad stimulus.  I'm wondering though, that due to the instability of a movement with more degrees of freedom, it would be harder to push that exercise to failure safely and therefore that may be less stimulus than a more stable exercise.This is a very nuanced question and I know they are both great approaches and will get good results. But I was curious about your thoughts, do you think one is superior and why? And learning a little more about degrees of freedom would be super interesting.

The 3 Mechanisms of Hypertrophy | ETP#59

Today’s episode is inspired by a recent Instagram post from Aaron comparing two recent DEXA scans. On the surface, it looks like muscle mass was lost…but was that truly the case? Can hypertrophy training mechanism temporarily shift the measurable amount of lean body mass?In this episode we introduce and cover the two types of muscle hypertrophy, myofibrillar and sarcoplasmic. As well as the three main mechanisms of action that drive muscle hypertrophy.  Three Mechanisms of Muscle Hypertrophy:1. Mechanical Tension: Heavy weights, in a controlled manner, through a full range of motion2. Metabolic Stress: short overload; higher reps, metabolites in muscle, supersets etc…3. Muscle Damage: lengthened overload = damage but is that a good thing? Two Types of Muscle Hypertrophy:1. Myofibrillar Hypertrophy.Building bigger/stronger muscle fibers2. Sarcoplasmic Hypertrophy.Accumulating more fluid in the muscles (glycogen; pump) *what you lose when taking time off, not actual muscle.   Thanks for listening.Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Are you training hard enough? | ETP#57

Are you training hard enough? How do you know? What are some of the clues you can use to subjectively perceive “enough” in the middle of a set? These are concepts we explore and provide personal feedback on in this episode. Additionally, we answer the remaining questions from episode #56 consisting of missing bicep pumps, Bryan’s new personal program on Paragon, is LMNT a good idea, how much Vitamin D to take, and eating less on rest/non-training days.Episode Questions:1. My bicep pumps are gone, I have done more & less volume, both with DB & cables. Carbs are up??2. Comparing Bryans program to the general Physique template at Paragon 3. Is LMNT or an electrolyte/sodium drink a good idea for everyone? 4. Good starting rec for Vitamin D. Is 6k IU a good starting point?5. On rest days/weekends, I find I am not nearly as hungry. Would it be ok to prioritize mostly protein and just let the carbs/fat fall wherever even if it means lower cal intake overall?

February Coaches Q&A | ETP#56

Today we have another edition of our Coaches Q&A segment where other nutrition coaches, in-person and online trainers submit questions. If you’re a new/established coach or looking to get into the space feel free to DM us question specifics to be covered on future Coaches Q&A episodes.1. What do you guys think about training abs before the primary workout? 2. What’s the order of training? Is it conditioning, strength then hypertrophy?3. Would love to know how you phase training between hypertrophy, metabolic and neurologic phases?4. Do your daily calories or macro splits change for rest days?5. How do you deal with unmotivated clients?6. Do you think personal trainers and nutritionists should be more distinct, and PTs not seen as a “one stop shop” for everything fitness related?7. Calculating Macros using TDEE if you lift 4x/week. How do you account for a super sedentary job?8. How to know how much protein someone needs? 9. How to deal with a client too focused on staying super lean but wants to add size?10. Is training each body part 2x over 9 days instead of 7 days still “optimal”?11. What is your check-in process for online clients?

Not Gaining Weight on Vacation?! | ETP#55

A fresh and health-focused viewpoint on taking vacations. After a recent poll on Bryan’s Instagram we realized losing weight during short trips and vacations is very common for us.

New Year: New Goals Q&A | ETP#50

Milestone episode number 50 landing right as we head into a brand new year. To kick the year off we have a rapid fire style Q&A segment and we cover a lot of different topics. Let’s jump into the questions!1. Aside from not getting a variety of minerals, etc. from different food sources (and possible food boredom) is there anything not optimal about eating the same foods day after day for let’s say a month or longer at a time if they meet your macro goals?2. Programming perspective/beliefs we used to hold that have now changed dramatically? 3. In tracked maintenance for a 3 months after a long time of inconsistency. Is Physique cycle a good one to begin a bulk? Also, I suffer from Gastroparesis and can’t bulk much (about 300 surplus). Will that do anything? 4. C19 in October. Bad case, tons of fatigue and breathing issues. Struggling, and having to choose work or workout, as fatigue is too high for both. Sleeping 9-10 hrs a night for last 2 weeks. Also all whoop readings red for a number of weeks. Used to be an avid hiker, but really struggling to workout and walk or get any super consistent movement day to day. Any words of advice or encouragement? 5. Super confused on failure training. Is one set to failure enough? Why would I want to do 2 sets ever? Is it better? Would you try to hit failure on every exercise in a workout if safety isn’t an issue? 6. Best way to load a sissy squat? Weighted vest?7. Thank you for all your knowledge and assistance throughout the year :) 8. In a training rut for myself. What good resources can you suggest? 9. Full body routines fatigue me too much for the final few exercises. Should I switch up the order? 10. How to get over a breakup. The chemistry was amazing, and three months later I am worse off 11. Best way to optimize upper body training when you can’t train lower with a broken leg? 12. How do you assess how you are recovering and when you need to take a rest day instead of train? 13. Reverse or Recovery diet? 14. In a superset, start with short or lengthened movement first? Why? 15. Cable machines…. Does it get harder or easier as you move closer to the cable stack? 16. How does narrow/wide stance impact a Glute bridge? 17. In your current setup, are you hitting upper 3x/week and lower 2x/week? 18. Who would get better results and why: Person training only lengthened movements, person with an even mix between lengthened/shortened/mid-range?19. Advice on moving away from scale and food/macro tracking. Irrational fear of loss of control…Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Co Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Rapid Fire Nutrition, Training, Lifestyle Q&A | ETP#42

Today we take a new approach to an Instagram Q&A episode and instead of picking and choosing we answered ALL SUBMITTED QUESTIONS. 23 questions to be precise. We sectioned off the questions into first nutrition related questions, then training related questions, and finally lifestyle related questions. Thank you to all of you guys who submitted your questions for this weeks episode and thank you for listening! ✌️Nutrition Questions: Does a higher fat macro split tend to favor a “lifestyle lean” Aesthetic, or is this anecdotal?Is it possible to go too slow in a building phase? I.E. 100 cal increase every 3 weeks versus every week? Sucralose. Avoid or don’t worry? Been on a cut to lean out. Is it bad to be on a cut for too long? How long should cuts and bulks be? Until you hit goals, or what is the recommendation? Nutrition and lifestyle tips for a college student who doesn’t wanna “miss out?” Training Questions: Studies or new findings that have changed the way you train and program?On days with a lengthened overload squat, would you prefer lengthened or short overload leg extension as secondary movement. If young training age, will “ME” (muscular endurance) training translate to overall/max strength. If so, how long? Do you find for yourself and clients, that training 6 out of 7 days is too much? Thoughts on Jeff Nippard style full body training 5x/week?Thoughts on single set to failure training? Best Pull-up progression? Bands, negatives? Resources we recommend for coaches wanting to expand training knowledge? Best way to gauge RIR if new to this type of training? Do we recommend warming up and stretching before, or just starting with light weight for first movement? (second part; stretch before or after training?) Best rep range for novice? Would you ever use eccentric-only training? Maybe at the end of a set? How do you gauge weights for backoff set on primary lift? Lifestyle Questions: I’m getting adequate total sleep, but very little DEEP sleep. Thoughts/tips/effects?Best tips for a good night sleep? Best recovery protocols? Foam roll, sauna, muscle stim? Others?How do you stay MOTIVATED to train solo? Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/F Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Recent Research Roundup | ETP#41

Today’s episode is a pilot for a new type of episode we may include monthly on research review roundups where we weigh in on some notably practical research in nutrition and training.First up a very cool study demonstrating that metabolic rate pretty much stays consistent throughout our 50’s. Then we dig into a very popular topic right now with three studies suggesting that training at longer muscle lengths promotes greater hypertrophy than shorter muscle lengths. Potential uses and practicality for drop sets and intensity training, and then some options and preferences on training split and frequency when strength is the priority.  If you enjoy this style of episode please reach out to either Bryan or Aaron on Instagram and let us know if we should do these semi-regularly.  As always, thanks for listening! ✌️Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/metabolic-performance-protocolDone For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Follow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media  ⬇️Instagram: @Eat.Train.ProsperInstagram: @bryanboorsteinInstagram: @aaron_strakerYouTube: EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Exercise Order / Dynamic Double Progression | ETP#40

Today we take a bit deeper of a dive on practical progression options for when to increase (or decrease) loads. We cover Dynamic Double Progression a bit deeper and why the rep drop-off model may be a more appropriate progression model for you.Additionally we cover if you should be rearranging your exercise order in your program to give greater rest between the same body parts.Then conversation then shifts into how to increase the length of your training blocks and extending potential total hypertrophic stimulus before deloading by reducing fatigue accumulation.We wrap up with which type of training: strength or hypertrophy would be most optimal for periods of considerable weight manipulation. Both increasing and decreasing.

Training Legs: Exercise Variation & Execution Cues | ETP#16

This week it's Bryan and Aaron going back and forth on Aaron's proposed daily leg training, reducing exercise variation to personal favorites for the purpose of increasing stimulus to the desired musculature. Bryan provides insight on common pitfalls and what is possibly the most realistic way to design full body hypertrophy programs. The conversation pivots into exercise execution specifically for Romanian Deadlifts (RDLs) biasing glutes vs hamstring and Bulgarian Split Squats biasing quadriceps vs. glutes and helpful cues to dial in your desired bias further. We wrap up with answering an Instagram question about our takes on drinking alcohol strictly from a training and body composition perspective.

How to Pick the Best Training Split | ETP#13

In today's episode we are talking all things training splits. What type of training split might be best suited for beginners, or for more advanced training ages? What factors outside of the gym might impact which training split could work best for you right now. We discuss our current training splits, some of our favorites we have used, as well as common splits we personally find we do not like much. Additionally we cover brief explanations of some of the most popular training splits you are likely to come across:A. Traditional Bro Splits. Training each muscle once per week.B. The Upper / Lower Split. Commonly repeated twice or more per week.C. Push, Pull, Legs. Commonly repeated once weekly for a 6 day split.D. Upper, Lower, Push, Pull, Legs. Hits each muscle group twice, providing a 5 day per week split.E. Full Body. 3-5+ times per week.Bonus Questions:1. How should rest days be adjusted for different splits 2. Is there a specific number of optimal reps for any given training split? Or are rep ranges specific to desired stimulus like strength, hypertrophy, endurance etc.?3. What is the best split for sports performance?4. What is our favorite upper back exercise?5. How would you structure split if you have an injury that limits upper body?Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.comInstagram: @aaron_strakerFollow Bryan's Gym Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comInstagram: @bryanboorsteinEat Train Prosper Socials ⬇️Instagram: @Eat.Train.ProsperYouTube: EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCASTCoaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Breaking Plateaus & Reflections on Lockdown Training | ETP#12

This week we revisit our training during last year's lockdown and the modifications we made and how it affected us physically and mentally. Our best advice for what to expect and plan for when returning to the gym after lockdown, and lastly how to approach breaking plateaus.Topics Explored:1. Reflecting on training during lockdown. Looking back now one year later.2. For those who haven't yet returned to your "normal" gym. The important things to consider for when making your triumphant return to the gym.3. Breaking plateaus. What we have found to be “best practices” when you think a plateau is occurring or has occurred. Covering both checkdowns you should make sure you're addressing inside your training as well as the "big rocks" outside of the gym.Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.comInstagram: @aaron_strakerFollow Bryan's Gym Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comInstagram: @bryanboorsteinEat Train Prosper Socials ⬇️Instagram: @Eat.Train.ProsperYouTube: EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCASTCoaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Psychology of Doing Less - Best Rep Range - Post "Cheat" Plan | ETP#11

This week we have another Instagram Q&A covering the psychology around "doing less", how to balance your volume between rep ranges, and appropriate course of action following a blowout/cheat meals and philosophies here.*Note. Bryan was experiencing some audio hardware issues later into the episode.Topics Explored:1. Coming from a higher volume training program (for example: competitive Crossfit) The process of psychological acceptance that it’s possible “less is more” and how you might diagnose your true volume requirements. 2. Regarding different rep ranges for hypertrophy, is there a “best one” for an individual? Or should we split volume evenly between all of the suggested rep ranges for hypertrophy. (5-10, 10-15, 15-25+)3. The day after a cheat meal is it ok to eat intuitively for carbs and fats versus meeting my macros?Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.comInstagram: @aaron_strakerFollow Bryan's Gym Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comInstagram: @bryanboorsteinEat Train Prosper Socials ⬇️Instagram: @Eat.Train.ProsperYouTube: EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCASTCoaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Relevancy of Tonnage? / When to Progress Load within a Rep Range | ETP10

Today's episode surrounds the ever important topics considering evaluating appropriate progression when moving through a training cycle. Speaking from the context of primarily hypertrophy but with indications of where dually applicable for strength as well.1. What is the relevancy of achieving a greater tonnage in evaluating progression? Is tonnage a metric we should pay attention to in a micro perspective? What about from a macro perspective?Example. Performing 30 lbs. for 15 reps = 450 lbs. tonnage vs 32.5 lbs. at 12 reps = 390 lbs. Does this decrease in total tonnage mean a lesser hypertrophic stimulus?2. How should you decide when to move up in weight for your working sets?Example: Say a target rep range is 12-15. If you perform 15, 13, 11. Do you move up or repeat the following week? Technically you didn’t meet the rep range on set 3, but the first two are great.Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.comInstagram: @aaron_strakerFollow Bryan's Gym Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comInstagram: @bryanboorsteinEat Train Prosper Socials ⬇️Instagram: @Eat.Train.ProsperYouTube: EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCASTCoaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Higher Carb Dieting, Training to Failure & Rest Periods | ETP#9

In today's episode Bryan and Aaron explore three different topics that always seem to be circulating in the various training and nutrition spaces. Dieting on a higher carbohydrate vs. a higher fat intake. There are generally two different considerations on this. One is shorter term, more geared towards aesthetics and physique. The other is a longer term approach and more health and longevity focused.Training to failure versus training to 1-2 RIR? (Reps in Reserve.) What about going high such as 3RIR and 4RIR?Optimal Rest Period length? Short rest periods (60 seconds) versus longer rest periods (3+ minutes) What are the implications of each on factors such as volume, rep execution, maintaining intra set performance,  do these effect muscle stimulus, etc.Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.comInstagram: @aaron_strakerFollow Bryan's Gym Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comInstagram: @bryanboorsteinEat Train Prosper Socials ⬇️Instagram: @Eat.Train.Prosper YouTube: EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCASTCoaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

On today's episode we have our first ever guests, Dr. Dave Maconi and Abel Csabai. Dave and Abel are both very knowledgable about training and nutrition and have valuable insights regarding each.Topics Explored:1. General thoughts on how much the genetic potential of strength and hypertrophy are related?2. Conjecture on some potential "strength numbers" that genetically average people could expect to hit over a training career.3. General discussion of epigenetics generation to generation (as well as whether there may be any potential impact from "nurture" throughout early part of life on muscular potential). What have we seen?4. Training volume: It seems we have all gone from higher volume to a more moderate volume of training over the last few years.5. Psychology of the “majority of days” being a certain way when dieting.

Instagram Questions & Answers:2 | ETP#6

In this second Q&A style episode Bryan and Aaron cover more questions asked from their Instagram followers. The questions are a solid balance between training, nutrition, and some  of the differences in how men and women can approach training respective to their physiological differences.Questions Answered:If I’m looking to maintain a lean physique but am confused if I’m eating enough or not, is it better to hire a nutrition coach and stick with a basic strength training program or to hire someone who does both nutrition and writes training programs. And if hiring a nutrition coach - are there any credentials one should look out for? Can you discuss the reasons and/or benefits of why you train twice daily? Trying to understand it practically, as well as physiologically. Please discuss periodization with regards to bulking, cutting, et. What are optimal periods for each?Why does lifting weight feel heavier/lighter depending on the training day? Are training and nutrition principles the same for males/females. Do differences in hormones impact results? * The Women's Book Aaron referenced in this episode can be found here. https://store.bodyrecomposition.com/the-womens-book-vol1/Resting between single leg movements versus single arm movements; Still need 2-3 min between limbs? If you’re eating in a deficit how should your weight training look/feel vs. maintenance eating?Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.comInstagram: @aaron_strakerFollow Bryan's Gym Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comInstagram: @bryanboorsteinEat Train Prosper Socials ⬇️Instagram: @Eat.Train.Prosper YouTube: EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCASTCoaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

Importance of Compound Movements | ETP#5

We often talk about topics with a view from above, zooming in on the advanced trainee. But we all started somewhere, and the way in which you start can impact what you learn, how you interpret the information you’re receiving as feedback from your body, and what processes become your guiding principles as you progress through the training journey. In this episode we discuss some of the basic training concepts that were part of our journey during the early days. How much did we rely on compound movements? When did we implement isolation work? What lessons can be learned from the approach we utilized? Would we change anything if we could go back in time and do it again? Topics Explored:Learning how to work hard. The big lifts provide the biggest challenge. Defining standard training level progressions:  Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced.Progression happens weekly as beginner, especially on compounds, which allows an athlete to see consistent progress and improve execution through practice of similar movement patterns (and also movements that happen to be relatively functional in the perspective of daily life). The Nature of compounds that they work everything.  Arms with pulling and pushing movements, quads/hams/glutes across the lower body lifts. When a stimulus is new, these compound movements will absolutely cause growth in the auxiliary/assistance muscle groups. When you’re a beginner, every stimulus is new! Progressing 7 basic movement patterns and variations of personal choice for each.Squat, Deadlift, Bench Press, Row, Dip, Pull-up, Overhead Press.Diagnostic tools, variable assessment and adding in isolation movements slowly over time. Paul Carter's current argument that the complexity of the big lifts is too much for a beginner to learn oftentimes. Focusing more on simpler movements enhances the process of the trainee learning to make a MMC and improve execution quickly. Eventually, you reach intermediate status. It’s difficult to quantify this, other than the metric above regarding progression rates.When you add isolations, as an intermediate or advanced trainee, they can become the premier “diagnostic tool” that you have for whether hypertrophy is increasing in that area. Nutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.comInstagram: @aaron_strakerFollow Bryan's Gym Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comInstagram: @bryanboorsteinEat Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

The Protein Range Debate | ETP#4

Bryan and Aaron provide their take on the protein range debate. Is 0.8 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight sufficient? Is there any beneficial potential in eating up to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight.  Are those upper ranges superfluous or is there any merit? What are the important contextual considerations that warrant a lower protein intake vs. the higher end ranges.Questions Explored:What is your ultimate goal / importance of contextConsiderations when trying maximize hypertrophy both with and without concern for fat accumulationCan you lower protein if you are eating at a maintenance level intakeIs a higher protein intake more beneficial during a calorie deficitHow protein impacts the overall Thermic Effect of FeedingGluconeogenesisDietary limitations and restrictionsFood SensitivitiesReligious and moral commitments and how these can impact what may or may not be realistic for higher protein intakesProtein "overfeeding" studieshttps://jissn.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1550-2783-11-19https://jissn.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12970-015-0100-0High protein intake, the relation with renal function and kidney safetyNutrition Coaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.comInstagram: @aaron_strakerFollow Bryan's Gym Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comInstagram: @bryanboorsteinEat Train Prosper Socials ⬇️Instagram: @Eat.Train.Prosper YouTube: EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCASTCoaching with Aaron ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/nutrition-coaching-apply-now/Done For You Client Check-In System for Online Coaches ⬇️https://strakernutritionco.com/macronutrient-reporting-check-in-template/Paragon Training Methods Programming ⬇️https://paragontrainingmethods.comFollow Bryan's Evolved Training Systems Programming ⬇️https://evolvedtrainingsystems.comFind Us on Social Media ⬇️IG | @Eat.Train.ProsperIG | @bryanboorsteinIG | @aaron_strakerYT | EAT TRAIN PROSPER PODCAST

This is part one of a two-part series on how to incorporate better position for improving exercise execution.Bryan and Aaron go into detail on improving mechanics, getting more hypertrophy, and decreasing joint discomfort from the movements you are performing. Body Parts Discussed:QuadricepsHamstringsCalvesTopics Covered:The importance of moving through a full range of motion for quadricep development. Foot pressure and position for quads.The two things happening when you squat. Hip extension and knee extension.The degree by which a movement prioritizes the quads, is going to be how much the movement biases knee extension over hip extension. Elevating the heels when squatting.Isolation movements for the quadricepsGlute vs. quad dominance in single leg movements and how to prioritize one versus the other.Isolated quadriceps movements that extend the knee in the absence of hip extension better target Rectus Femoris. A movement that extends hip and knee together spans both joints and will not allow for as much specific Rectus Femoris focus. Functional fitness or home gym variations for the absence of a leg extension machine.Execution style of hip hinge movements and understanding proximity to failure in terms of what muscles are receiving the stimulus.Lying hamstring curls versus seated hamstring curls and techniques for improving execution for each.A recent research study published on the effectiveness of seated leg curls when compared to the lying leg curl: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33009197/The importance of achieving the stretched position of calf raises.Performing calf raise exercises with the knee extended and performing movements with the knee at 90 degrees of flexion.
