What’s the truth? Should Oz be burned at the stake or is he simply the scape goat for an industry and a people who have lost their way and are desperate to be saved from their own fork and spoon?

Episode 39: About the Truth About Post-Workout Nutrition and The Mr. Olympia Weekend

In this Power-Packed episode, Scott and Shawn attack the often debated issue of Post-Workout Nutrition.

Is there a vital window? Must you have a protein or Nutrition shake? What should you eat and when?

Or, is it all just a bunch of hype you should forget?

Scott shares an important paper on from Alan Albert Aragon and Brad Jon Schoenfeld, Nutrient timing revisited: is there a post-exercise anabolic window?

We tell you what the science says, and then what we both practice and believe. This takes Scott into his experimenting with BCAA’s, and how he feels that’s working (or not).

And finally, Shawn shares his highlights (well, some of them) from last weekend’s Mr. Olympia weekend. A great time and great gathering of industry icons!

Episode 38: About POWER EATING with Dr. Susan Kleiner

If I told you how great, how valuable, how rich in wisdom this show is—right here—your brain could not even grasp it.

Seriously, I could expire and go to Performance Hell now and be totally satisfied with my work here on earth after spending a hour with the one and only Master of Performance Nutrition, Susan Kleiner, PhD, RD, FACN, CNS, FISSN.

What do we talk about? Well, for that you’re gonna have to listen but safe to say it’s what you absolutely, positively need to know. For sure. No punches, no BS, no myth, no crap… it’s the real deal.


NOW Please, if you’re a fitness professional, if you’re an athlete, if you’re a person who wants to live a leaner, lighter, stronger life… GO OUT and GRAB your COPY of this amazing LIFE’S WORK NOW.  Don’t think about it, agonize over it or even dwell for one second. Just DO IT. NOW. This is the truth, the wisdom, the guidance. This is what books are meant to be.

Here’s what I shared on Susan’s Facebook Page after the show…

“That was such a highlight… I so enjoy talking and learning from you. I just think this world of performance, of athletes and for that matter, human-beings, desperately need more of your wise, sound, scientific and grounded practical knowledge… this world of “fitness” is so full of extremes, of myth, of absolute “do’s and don’ts” that people become confused victims of it all… and yet, here’s this teacher, this guide, with the real experience, the real information who’s putting it into a book you can have and hold… and best of all apply to your life.

I think when you love challenging yourself, your body, your performance like you and I both do, the idea of being able to share this with people and help them achieve a better life is the best thing ever…And that is what so inspires me about talking with you and sharing your work. I want people to have this information, I want them to have the chance of getting better, stronger, leaner…whatever it is they want to do better.
