Play • 41 min

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training has gained popularity in recent years. 

But is it overrated? 

What about the countless other concepts, theories, and methods in strength training?

At times it can be hard to tell the real from the fake.

Let's clear some of that up today.

I had you guys send in your questions, and I'm here with my take on whether I feel these (and others) are overrated or underrated: 

  • Protein powder? [2:20]
  • Calf raises? [3:56]
  • Overhead pressing? [7:24]
  • Chains? [11:26]
  • Intra-workout nutrition? [12:56]
  • Blood flow restriction? [17:16]
  • Fasting? [28:31]
