About the Website
Exercise science can be rough can't it? Some people just want to know the basics and simple explanations to get on with their workouts. We simplify the science into easy to follow principles, and we provide cited sources from peer-reviewed journals and textbooks from nationally accredited organizations; no broscience here. We also provide workouts for your goals, and recommend other resources for more advanced people. We love talking about this stuff, and we hope you all enjoy the content!
