Training for maximum muscle growth [JMax podcast]

Categories: Videos & podcasts

I don’t even know what the topic for this podcast was. I also didn’t know we were live until about 10 minutes in. Nevertheless, this was a nice talk and we touched on many different topics, including the following.

  • Should you train to failure?
  • How to train your calves
  • The optimal training frequency
  • Eccentric overloading
  • What is ‘mechanical tension’?
  • Strength vs. size
  • Isolation vs. compound exercises
  • Why the deadlift isn’t an ideal mass builder
  • Exercise modifications for the pecs and delts
