In this episode, coaches Seba Ehmann and Jim Elli welcome Dr. Buckner from the University of South Florida.

Research focuses on skeletal muscle adaptation, and his current work emphasizes enhancing understanding of the effects of blood flow restriction on muscle size. Dr. Buckner has 60 papers published in peer-reviewed journals, and in 2012 was the Guinness World Record holder for the most consecutive 90-degree pushups.

On this podcast, we discuss some common myths which are often magnified in the powerlifting community, how to implement effective training strategies for muscle growth, and the intricacies of individualized training for optimal performance.
