    funny…i already knew the jist of this talk…from studying exercise science my whole life,but i was honestly wonderfully blown away listening to this: GREAT stuff,GREAT presentation…;worth noting is that the fitness industry has a different understanding of things;the "alternative training" ideology is basically what dominates how most gyms operate these days…;simple fact: VERY few people find strength training to be "interesting enough" to make a consistent part of their gym experience,and gyms have KNOWN THIS,for a long time. So,the fitness industry has collectively,quietly agreed,that the most convenient way to generate business (and yea,i suppose keep their membership feeling good about SOMEthing),is to invent other ways to be physically active: functional+core training. Talk about ROI heaven! The fitness industry discovered years ago that selling this kind of training to the public was a massive HIT and the idea of continued efforts to educate the public about conventional progressive resistance, strength training,should take a back seat to the promotion of any OTHER kind of training that could possibly maintain nice numbers (return on investment).
    The fitness industry has turned into a freakshow of junk science and junk fitness pro's….i go into a gym these days and listen to such endless garbage from trainers (talking out loud to their 1-on-1 clients) who seem out of touch with even the basic principles of strength training…
    So i fear that a REALLY EDUCATIONAL video like this one will just never find its way to a public desperately in need of some truth and fact.

    You can tell that these people asking questions here in Florida, are relocated northerners, based on their confrontational tones.

    Great comment on orthopedic PT/re-hab. at the end. Having had 3 major surgeries (Lt. ACL, Rt. TKR, and Rt. Ankle micro-fracture, removed bone fragments and repaired torn ligaments, etc) in the last 3 yrs. I employed BBS style work which impressed all of the therapists I had, and the results were fantastic. Once I explained it to each therapist, they were very supportive. If you have not tried the BBS workout, check into it and read the book so you understand why and how. The why is as, if not more important, than the how. Once you understand the science behind the concepts, you will be more effective with the program.
    The BBS book also gets into the 'Paleo' diet which isn't necessary and IMO doesn't really belong in the book. I general, much of what is discussed in the 'Paleo lit. is pretty decent. However, the Diet itself has been largely debunked, but that is a whole 'nother topic.

    Superb talk. So kind of Dr. McGuff to mention my work and the importance of physiological capacity, body composition, and type 2 fibers. He got into systemic signaling, which is my current point of emphasis. Brain and muscle are your most important tissues, which you will see from my IHMC lecture. Cardio is over rated and, as his lecture points out, can only happen if you first use the more ancient form of movement — anaerobic metabolism. I would point to stem cells and have my own protocol, not much different from Doug's, which is to double my muscle stem cells through a form of eccentric exercise. Anyway, great work.

    Is there anywhere in Orlando that teaches his methods?

    What caught my ear was that the older gentleman he profiled near the beginning did HIST 1x/week, but ALSO apparently High Intensity Aerobic Interval Training (HIAIT).

    Does anyone know what type of HIAIT is utilized under the Body By Science protocol?

    Is it the 'commonly understood' type of aerobic training (like Elliptical, Sprinting, etc.) where, for example, a person does a high intensity '20 seconds on, 10 seconds off' kind of protocol;

    Or is it weight bearing, where, for example, someone did high reps of lower weights to fatigue for a short period of time, takes a brief rest, and then does them again?

    I'd like to incorporate my HIAIT into my workouts at this point of my life, so any guidance is much appreciated.

    Doug McGuff or anyone else with the knowledge. Since UPC1( thermogenin) is found only in brown fat, what uncoupling mitochondrial proteins are stimulated by IL-15? I knew that uncoupling are increased by thyroid hormone, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and leptin—but I had no idea about (1) IL-15 stimulation nor (2) conversion of white to brown fat in either children or adults. Truly fascinating, and uplifting !

    Glad to see a new version of the Body By Science teaching. Your teaching helped motivate me back onto a life long path of health and high activity. I had a lull in my late 40's that caught up with me around 50ish. Following the HIT protocol my health snapped back quite quickly. A big thanks to Doug McGuff.

    This is probably one of the most important lectures on the efficacy of strength training, in terms of inducing physical well being, that I have seen. Thank you Dr. McGuff for sharing this with us.

    Thanks, what is your opinion of ketogenic nutrition?
