#102 Flex Coach George - New Science of Muscle Growth

Season #1

A bicep curl is a bicep curl, right? Well... some new science is suggesting that under certain conditions, spending longer in a particular portion of the exercise is supportive of hypertrophy (growth). This is true for all exercises, beyond bicep curls. Flex Coach George takes us on a tour of this emerging science and unpicks if, when, and how we can implement this into our programming for better outcomes.
