1. What is Barbells on the Brain?

To make a long story short, “Barbells on the Brain” fuses scientific evidence with the practical insight gained through years of actually training. Over the years the fitness industry has long debated the importance of education against experience, like the two were mutually exclusive terms. I’ve dedicated my career to completing the scientific training required to answer the difficult questions regarding optimal training methods (education), and developed my applied skills through moving weights myself and training a variety of individuals (experience).

If you’re comfortable diving head first into in-depth studies, and understand that sometimes practicalities require you to take a leap of faith on a purely theoretical argument, you’re going to like it here.
