Ep 65 | How to Build "Toned" Muscles, Misery McMansion, and Sensational Headlines
Aug 29, 2017
Sabrena Jo and Matt Scanlon
The show opens with a discussion about the most effective marketing tactics in the fitness industry. This includes short "challenges", talking about "toned" muscles, and unfair targeting of women in fitness marketing.
We spend the bulk (pun intended) of this show talking about the science of muscle fiber types and how (if at all) one could train for "bulky", "toned", or "long and lean" muscles. We do a thought experiment - why do we believe that building muscles in an unweighted squat is somehow different than training muscles in a weighted squat?
It all comes down to genetics, diet, and training volume. Be informed, folks.
