This is the final episode of 2020, and it’s a science-heavy episode packed full of information. After some Good News and Feats of Strength, Eric revisits a couple of previous segments and social media posts about optimal protein intakes and the potential benefits of fish oil. Greg got some new information about a paper evaluating the use of strength blocks to increase hypertrophy, so he revisits that topic as well. Finally, Greg and Eric share some new research reviews about the importance of muscle glycogen depletion for lifters and biological factors that may limit the growth of muscle fibers, followed by a sincere “thank you” to close out the year.
