Can adding a minimal amount of walking enhance your results by 50%? Does ginseng boost testosterone? Do artificial sweeteners enhance or inhibit weight loss? What type of lifting cues work best? I’m covering the latest research on these topics in this podcast.

This podcast is another installment in my Research Roundup series of episodes, where I give you concise and practical takeaways from studies that I think are interesting and that can help us gain muscle and strength faster, lose fat faster, perform better athletically, feel better, live longer, or get and stay healthier. 

There is a ton of scientific research that gets published every year, and even if you narrow your focus to fitness research, it would still take several lifetimes to unravel the hairball of studies on nutrition, training, supplementation, and related fields. 

That’s why my team and I put a lot of time into reviewing, dissecting, and describing scientific studies in articles, podcasts, and books.
