Greg and Eric are back from summer break and better than ever. Season three brings a couple of exciting changes, including a brand new Facebook group and subreddit to allow you to participate in the conversation. Today’s episode begins with a conflicted Good News segment and some recent Feats of Strength. After that, Greg and Eric have a huge Research Roundup segment to catch up on a number of studies that were published over summer break, with topics including cannabis, caffeine, creatine, bench press angles, appetitive traits, steroid addiction, and more. That’s followed by a quick Q&A segment and a conversation about how to progress your training throughout a mesocycle. Finally, Greg and Eric share their top barbecue tips to play them out.
