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.

  • #Quah question #1 - If you want to add volume to focus on building up a certain muscle, how much sense does it make to scale back on all the other muscle groups for a phase? How long would you recommend staying there before overfatiguing the target muscle? (57:27)

  • #Quah question #2 - What's the best program for someone who typically overtrains at the gym and is about to start training for a half marathon? (1:00:56)

  • #Quah question #3 - What are the best compound exercises? Which ones do you recommend above all else? Which ones are a waste of time? (1:03:39)

  • #Quah question #4 - When should I take creatine? I used to stack it with my pre-workout but heard somewhere that the two fight for bio-availability so you don't get the full benefit so I switched to post-workout. Now after hearing about all the cognitive benefits, I'm considering taking it in the morning. I typically work out either at lunch or after work. When would you suggest is the optimal time to take it? (1:09:12)
