Great time having bigstrongfast and marksmellybell at the Cal State Fullerton Lab today! Nice to be down in SoCal to work with drandygalpin and colleagues! Look forward to seeing data from these muscle samples... 💪

At senior level coaches may be recognized for their contribution but in other forms of the game they often go unnoticed on the sidelines. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to say thank you to your coach for the endless hours of encouragement, guidance, inspiration and motivation. Just write a sweet note on a greeting card to express your gratitude. You can even post your messages and quotes on Facebook or IG, These kind words of recognition of your coach’s contribution in your journey as a player or an athlete will mean a lot. Coaching can sometimes be very thankless because winning is credited to the players whereas the blame for losing is often put on the coaches. Thank you coach ibertrophy. Only a coach like you can help us convert the bitter pain of sacrifice into the sweet taste of victory. #teamibertrophy

Presenting my poster on estrogen effects on AMPK activation in human skeletal muscle. The menstrual cycle is a complicated mess that dissuades the inclusion of female subjects in studies of muscle physiology. Because we lack the knowledge of what these hormones affect regarding our proteins of interest, we scientists continue to pursue studying the lower hanging fruit (aka men). Thus further perpetuating the lack of knowledge regarding women. Trying to break this cycle and encourage future studies to better understand that other cycle! #ampk #estrogen #menstrualcycle #musclescience #sheblindedmewithscience

I had a great time today presenting my masters thesis at the Southwest American of Sports Medicine Conference in Long Beach! My research looked at the effects simulated zero gravity imposes upon skeletal muscle myonuclear content and how combined aerobic and resistance exercise can mitigate muscle atrophy. Turns out, this mode of exercise helps prevent muscle atrophy that normally occurs during space flight and preserves fiber type! Muscle physiology is cool, guys 😊 • • • #musclescience #muscle #spaceflight #musclephysiology #exercisescience #womeninscience #hypertrophy #satellitecells #sciencerules

- MUSCLE 💪 vs. FAT - Regranned from bretcontreras1 - Please share this so we can clear up this misconception‼️ . I'm sure you've seen the images floating around the Internet showing what 5lbs of fat vs. 5lbs of muscle looks like. The replicas typically shown are a giant blob of fat next to a tiny mound of muscle, and you're inevitably left believing that 5lbs of fat takes up 5x more space than 5lbs of muscle. . This is a myth! 🚫In actuality, the density of mammalian skeletal muscle tissue is 1.06kg/L, while that of adipose tissue is 0.9196kg/L. In other words, fat only takes up 15% more space than muscle. . So 5lbs of fat weighs the same as 5lbs of muscle - obviously! But muscle is only slighter more dense than fat. . How did this misconception arise? I do not know, but I surmise that some sleazy marketer fabricated the idea to sell a product or service by dramatizing the visual effects of getting into shape. 🤷🏽‍♂️Whatever the case, this individual clearly never chased down the science like I did. Unfortunately, these images are so common nowadays that they aren't questioned and are passed along as fact. Exaggeration is never a good idea; people deserve the truth. 🙌🏽 #science #fatloss #muscle #musclescience #fitness #bodybuilding #gluteguy . References: . 1️⃣Lohman TG.

#Repost kevinmurachphd ( get_repost) ・・・ An interesting short review was just published in the open access journal Frontiers in Physiology (free to read!). Mitochondrial biogenesis (or the creation of new mitochondria, the ATP-producing powerhouses of the cell) in skeletal muscle is a hallmark adaptation to endurance training. It is not classically associated with resistance training adaptation. In regard to resistance training, the authors write: “As judged from the ability to increase mitochondrial respiration, high-load resistance exercise can stimulate mitochondrial function. Yet, since this has so far only been reported from studies on permeabilized fibers, but not confirmed in studies on isolated mitochondria, this specific methodological aspect also requires further attention.” The authors also highlight that very little is known regarding mitochondrial adaptations to low-load/high-repetition resistance training, which can elicit hypertrophic adaptations similar to heavy weight lifting, but also has an endurance-like component. Overall, the positive effect of resistance training on mitochondrial health is probably overlooked, and much more work should and will be done in this area. Resistance training = mitogainz!? Stay tuned. #mitogainz #musclescience #mitochondria #liftingweights #endurancetraining #exercisephysiology #sportsmedicine #biomechanics #sportscience #bioquímica #adaptation #programming #strengthcoach #athletictraining #weightlifting #preparadorfisico #treinamentointegrado

MUSCLE BUILDING STRENGTH STANDARDS - I have a question for you... - What do you think builds more muscle?: - A) Getting stronger - or - B) Getting a pump - The answer is "A" all day baby! - If you want to build muscle, your goal should be to get strong in each "big lift". This means having a strength standard. If you reach this strength standard in this lift, it means you will be bigger. Try to find me a guy who can squat 405lbs, pullup 125lbs, bench 315lbs, and deadlift 495lbs who isn't jacked. - I want your muscle building journey to be simple. The best way to do that is to focus on one thing: get stronger and work towards these strength standards. Don't let anyone get in your way...not even a Lannister. - Each strength standard is based on a 180lb man with 12% body fat. Being strong and fat isn't that impressive. You want to be strong and lean! This is what will allow you to be jacked. - If someone you know is trying to put on muscle, then send them here. - #buildmuscle #gainmuscle #musclescience #musclegrowth #musclescientist #getstrong #muscleman #muscled #musclegain #jmaxfitness #musclemodel #musclemen #muscleboy #muscleguy #musclefit #musclekingz #deadlifting #squatlife #squatday #benchpress #benchday #deadliftday #legday #armday #chestday #backday #latspread #chinup #pullup #strongman

HOW TO GET BIG NOW - There's ONE THING you need to do that will guarantee muscle growth, and it's getting stronger in the 6-10 rep range. - For example, if you want to build your chest, and your max bench press is 135lbs for 6 reps, then your number 1 goal should be to add 100lbs to your bench press. Doing so will build a bigger chest. I promise. - The same goals for any other body part. Have skinny legs? Add 100lbs to your Bulgarian Split Squat. Does your back suck? Add 100lbs to your chinup. Crappy shoulders? Add 100lbs to your overhead press. I think you can see my point. - Take your time and the strength will come. For example, if you can currently bench 135lbs for 3 sets of 6 reps, then your next workout needs to be 135lbs for 7,6,6. The workout after that needs to be 135lbs for 7,7,6. Keep going until you can do 135lbs for 3 sets of 10 reps, then add weight and keep going. - Chase that strength. Weak guys don't have big muscles. Just look at Joffrey Lannister for an example of that. - If someone you know is trying to build muscle, then send them here. They need to hear this. - #highreps #buildmuscle #gainmuscle #musclescience #musclegrowth #musclescientist #setsandreps #muscleman #muscled #musclegain #jmaxfitness #musclemodel #musclemen #muscleboy #muscleguy #lightweight #musclekingz #deadlifting #squatlife #squatday #benchpress #benchday #deadliftday #legday #armday #chestday #heavyweights #lowreps #bulking #bulkup
