Weightology Research Review January 2020

The January 2020 issue of the Weightology Research Review is now online!⁠

If you want to get jacked, this is THE issue you'll want to read.⁠

Here's the table of contents for this issue:

  • Volume or training to failure: which is more important to building muscle?
  • Does plate size impact calorie intake?
  • Training to failure: the load matters!
  • Muscle confusion: more psychological than physiological
  • More volume = more muscle? It may depend on the training structure!
  • Highly palatable foods: we know them when we see them...or do we?
  • NEAT reduction: a matter of efficiency
  • Breakfast: metabolism booster or buster?

There's been a number of recent studies on training volume and training to failure, and I cover them all. In one of the reviews, I go over the recent Brigatto study, just what it means for you in terms of training volume, and how it fits in with all the other volume research. In two other reviews, I cover training to failure and just when you should and shouldn't. Finally, I cover a recent study on "muscle confusion" and whether there's any benefit or detriment to it.⁠

I round things out with reviews on plate size and calorie consumption, objective identification of hyperpalatable foods, NEAT and muscle efficiency, and breakfast and metabolism.⁠

Here's a visual snapshot of some of the content:
