Greg and Eric are back with the second episode of Season 2, and it’s a great one. First, the guys discuss a ton of remarkable Feats of Strength from the last few weeks. Next, Greg & Eric answer some listeners’ questions about topics such as fat-free mass index, pre-workout nutrition, building strength without adding muscle, and whether or not you should use touch-and-go reps while deadlifting. That’s followed by a Research Roundup segment, which discusses some fascinating new articles about the relationship between muscle fluid volume and force, the effects of protein intake on bone health, and high-load versus low-load training. After that, Eric gives an explosive update on the drama related to the red meat/processed meat research that has caused quite a stir in the nutrition world. Finally, Greg delivers on his promise and explains how to bake the perfect loaf of sourdough bread.
