Every week The InForm Fitness Podcast dives into emerging research in the world of exercise and nutrition. We not only want to motivate you, we want to inspire and educate you.
We cover topics like the role genetics plays in our response to exercise, the profound physiological effects of intense exercise, proper biomechanics, and bodybuilding’s dirty little secret.
We also interview experts like best-selling author Gretchen Rubin of The Happiness Project, biomechanics expert, Bill DeSimone, biochemist Sylvia Tara, author of The Secret Life of Fat, and many more!
At the time of this recording we are smack dab in the middle of the 2018 Winter Olympics and a lot of us are camped out in front off the TV cheering on the Americans in their favorite winter sports, like ice hockey, figure skating, snow boarding, and skiing just to name a few, while others are actually headed to the ice or to the slopes themselves.
So how does all that tie into a podcast about slow-motion, high-intensity strength training? Though you may not find Olympic athletes training at the several InForm Fitness facilities across the US, Mike and Adam have heard numerous reports from their clients how the Power of Ten Protocol has shown significant results to improve a skiers performance and endurance while enjoying their time on the mountain.
Adam Zickerman and Mike Rogers of Inform Fitness are joined by Luke Carlson of Discover Strength to discuss a book authored by Greg Mckeown titled Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. The principles described in this book directly apply to the slow motion,
The principles described in this book directly apply to the slow motion, high-intensity, strength training protocol practiced at all 7 InForm Fitness locations across the country and the 3 Discover Strength location in and near Minneapolis, Minnesota of which Luke is the founder and CEO.

However, could this study contain some flaws? Could the trusted, highly respected AHA actually be skewing the results of their study? Adam and Mike breakdown the data behind the recent AHA study and point out the obvious flaws that could be misleading the population to eliminate natural oils (such as coconut oil) for unnatural oils (such as canola oil).
This one’s for the girls and Sheila, Ann, and Nicole discuss:
- The main issues they encounter with their female InForm Fitness clients
- Whether or not there is anything special about the Power of Ten Workout specific to females
- The battle between a client’s desire for weight loss or body composition
- The pursuit for vitality and strength over just being skinny

and Joanie which basically recaps what we talked about in the last two episodes of The Inform Fitness Podcast. Then at the completion of the video a little magic happened. A relatively spontaneous little jam session broke out between Adam and Joanie. Adam pulled out a guitar and Joanie shared her voice with us and we captured it all on video.
