Ryan A. Hall, BS, MS, Exercise Physiology, Certified Master Trainer, and major partner in Exercise Science, LLC has over 25 years of experience in the health and fitness industry. Ryan’s Exercise and Genetic Variability Lecture formed the basis of Chapter 8The Genetic Factor in Body By Science by Dr Doug McGuff and John Little. He also contributed to Chapter 3: The Dose/Response Relationship of Exercise.

This is Part 2. For Part 1, which I highly recommend you listen to first, please click here. Please note - In this episode, I talk about my confusion around effective diets for optimal body composition, I've since found that Ted Naiman's recent presentation on Insulin Resistance (coupled with our recent discussion - coming soon!) has been incredibly helpful in providing some clarity!

The studies Ryan mentioned will be added to this blog post at a later date.

  • Ryan’s thoughts on effective exercise cadence.
  • How to objectively measure progress and specifically improvements in strength.
  • The importance of the negative component of the exercise.
