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. Find Mind Pump and the Mind Pump hosts on Instragram @mindpumpradio, @mindpumpsal, @mindpumpadam, @mindpumpjustin & @mindpumpdoug and on Facebook at mindpumpshow.

Organifi Quah! iTunes Review Winners!

In this episode of Quah, sponsored by Organifi (organifi.com, code "mindpump" for 20% off), Sal, Adam & Justin answer Pump Head questions about strategies for women who have screwed up their hormones and can't lose fat, if some people are genetically predisposed to having to take pharmaceuticals to be "normal," tips for persistent acne when the elimination diet has failed and pointers for avoiding lower back strain when doing a standard military press.

  • Guys talk selling yourself doing just about anything (4:04)
  • Guys talk about JP Sears (7:45)
  • Sal goes to the carnival (8:48)

    • Streamed by Amazon
  • Justin talks his Thrive Market order (31:25)
  • Quah question #1 – Can you talk about dieting strategies for women who have screwed up their hormones from competing and have gained a ton of body fat and can’t lose weight? (38:27)
    • Reduce cardio activity
    • Lower calorie intake at first, increase later
    • Focus on resistance training, building muscle
    • 40/30/30 – Fats/Protein/Carbs
  • www.Brain.fm/mindpump Brain.fm discount www.audibletrial.com/mindpump,  Audible discount, www.bengreenfieldfitness.com/naturebite "Mindpump" discount on CBD supplements 
  • Quah question #2 – It seems there are two somewhat opposing views which are consistently discussed and represented on the show. The first is that there are some people who are simply genetically predisposed to superior fitness or athletic prowess, something that it would be hard for anyone to refute. The second is several times it has come up in reference to western medicine's ability to treat chronic health concerns. It came up recently when you spoke on ADHD. So if there are people who are simply genetically predestined to be superior in certain aspects, why would someone not simply be genetically predestined to be much weaker in a certain function such as focus? Is it realistic to think that there are people who will simply never be “normal” without some sort of daily pharmaceutical intervention? Does this represent a true belief for any of you or is it just a result of interpretation? (53:26)
  • Quah question #3 – Any tips for an adult male with acne? They have tried the elimination diet and eat organic. (1:09:12)
    • Probiotic sprays for your skin
    • Extended fast (24-48 hrs.) then switch to plant based diet
    • Focus on messing with diet and take notes
  • www.kimerrakoffee.com Discount Code "mindpump", www.bengreenfieldfitness.com/bars Discount Code "mindpump"
