Mind Pump: Raw Fitness Truth

MindPump exposes the RAW TRUTH about health, fitness, nutrition and more... Hosts Sal Di Stefano, Adam Schafer & Justin Andrews pull back the curtain on the mythology, snake oil and pseudo-science that pervades the fitness industry and present science-backed solutions that result in increased muscular development and performance while simultaneously emphasizing health. No fitness institution or fitness "truth" is safe from their quick wit and over 40 years of combined experience in the fitness industry. Produced by Doug Egge.

The average workout program that is being sold today is no more than a bunch of exercises thrown together to make you FEEL like something is happening without producing any results. Then to add insult to injury, these crap program purveyors pitch you on expensive supplements that they claim make the difference between success and failure in the gym. Here's the fact: Your workout (combined with a healthy diet and sufficient rest) is the KEY factor that determines if you will build any significant muscle or not. Supplements, in spite of all the hype and attention, play a very small role (possibly unmeasurable) in how your body adapts and builds. So why all this focus on supplements? Because they are a huge money maker and play into peoples' frustration and desire for the quick fix. If you want gains you must put your focus on how your workouts are designed and executed, not on supplements. Excellent workout design, also known as workout programming, is not an easy task and requires a very high degree of expertise and experience. Sal, Adam & Justin are often asked what makes an expertly programmed workout and why the MAPS programs work so well. You will soon learn why this is not a simple question to answer.

It seems that the fitness industry has it's priorities a bit mixed up. Go to a fitness show and what dominates?... Supplements! You would think that supplements are the key to success in the gym but in truth few have any proven value, most are worthless and some are actually harmful. Why has the fitness industry strayed so far from what REALLY matters...namely workout programming and diet? Because supplements make money, LOTS of money.

There is probably no other industry that passes off pseudo-science as science more than the fitness industry. More often than not this is done to build authority and to earn a profit. Of course, most fitness enthusiasts are hungry for results and are NOT scientists so they have to take the “experts” word on it, even if they are being fed pure BS. It is Mind Pump’s mission to call out this BS and to expose the massive misinformation for profit mindset that seems to pervade the Fitness Establishment. Please subscribe, rate and review this show!
