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 mentality MATTERS most! (10:04)

 

  • The Focus, Pros, and Cons of Lifting Heavy Vs. Lifting Light.

    • Pros: Great for overall muscle, real-world applicable strength, and builds a solid body. (19:12)
    • Cons: Higher injury risk, feeds the ego, and it's hard to bring up lagging body parts. (25:50)
  • Lifting Light: Maximizes inefficiency, focuses on the target muscle, and it's all about the “feel.” (30:08)
    • Focus: Calm collected, and visualizes the target muscle. (35:08)
    • Pros: Brings up target body parts, and lowers injury risk. (41:25)
