I know it has been discussed on a few episodes, but could you breeze over training to increase the number of nuclei in muscle cells again? Thanks

As I look back over 30 years of training, I thought it’d be helpful to discuss those times where I made the greatest gains.

While exercising, blood flow to the muscles is elevated at least 400%, producing the ability to raise biologically active GH 480%, the ability to positively modulate insulin/antagonize cortisol and the ability to increase protein synthesis no less than 600% (1)(2)....
The next time you’re in the drug store, take a hard look at all of the available “fat burners” for sale. There are DOZENS of them on the shelves, just begging for your dollars. They average in price from a low of $20 to a high of $75 or more, in some cases a LOT more! Take a closer look at the label.
