Fitness Science Explained

Do you want to know how to use science to optimize your health, fitness, and lifestyle?

Do you want to know how to protect yourself against misguided, misleading, and even menacing advice supposedly supported by research?

And do you want to get up to speed quickly, regardless of your educational background?

If so then the book Fitness Science Explained which I co-authored with Mike Matthews is for you.

It’s a crash course in reading, understanding, and applying scientific research, and it teaches you in simple terms what most people will never know about how to not suck at fitness science.

Fitness Science Explained covers all of the big moving parts, including the basics of the scientific method to the differences between randomized trials and observational studies, the power of the placebo effect, the importance of sample sizes, the anatomy of statistical analysis, and much more.

You’ll also learn how to get access to full-text studies (without spending a fortune) and the most popular journals for exercise, nutrition, and supplementation, and you’ll get a scientist-formulated “cheat sheet” that’ll help you quickly and accurately estimate the quality of research you want to review.

So, whether you want to discover and use evidence-based methods for building muscle or losing fat faster, reducing your risk of disease or dysfunction, or maximizing some other aspect of your body, mind, or life, Fitness Science Explained will show you the way.
