Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Greg and Eric are back with another episode. First, Greg shares some recent Feats of Strength. Next, Greg & Eric answer some listeners’ questions about topics such as resting metabolic rate prediction equations, electromyography, vitamin D and fish oil supplementation, standing desks, and more. That’s followed by a Research Roundup segment, which covers recent research on plant-based proteins, training shy of failure, and artificial sweeteners, in addition to a critical review of “Why We Sleep.” Finally, the relationship between lifting technique and injury risk is discussed in a brief Coach’s Corner segment, and Greg shares some sous vide cooking tips to close out the episode.
