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.

  • #ListenerLive question #3 – With my current programming my back is still sore from deadlifts by the time I get to squat day. There have been multiple times now that I go for my first warm up set of back squats and my back immediately locks up and is in insane pain which cuts my workout short because I can’t continue doing squats or any hip hinge movements. Is there something else I could be doing differently to avoid experiencing this so often? (1:12:59)
