In this episode, Holly and Layne interview Dr. Mike Israetel. Dr. Israetel is one of the most well-known evidence-based hypertrophy experts in the world. We chat with him about what matters most for hypertrophy, with the discussion centering around volume, load, intensity, and proximity to failure. We also get insight into the mindset of hardcore training where we will teach our listeners about the difference between training to failure... and training to failure by going to the 'dark place.' This episode is sure to blow some minds, so you don't want to miss it!
