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.

In this episode Sal, Adam & Justin cover the pros and cons of lifting heavy vs. lifting light.

  • There are two main ways to strength train. The first one is to make heavy weights feel light. The second is to make light weights feel heavy. (1:40)
  • Which avatar benefits more from switching lifting methods, the bodybuilder or the powerlifter? (4:12)
  • The mentality MATTERS most! (10:04)

 

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

 

  • Lifting Heavy: Maximizes efficiency, focuses on movement, and doesn’t focus on “feeling” the muscle. (13:40)
    • Focus: Psyching up, and perfecting the smooth movement. (16:55)
    • 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)
    • Cons: Doesn’t build as much total muscle, and strength is less applicable to the real-world. (44:52)
