In today's episode, Daniel sits down with Dr. Andy Galpin. Topics of discussion include mechanisms of muscle hypertrophy, additional considerations regarding metabolic damage, fiber type-specific hypertrophy, age-related muscle fiber type distribution, plyometrics and stepping outside of strength-based research, and more.
