The Strength Training Paradox with Dr. Jeremy Loenneke

Researchers have recently uncovered that ‘those who are strong, live longer.’ Moreover, people who exercise get stronger. Therefore, as logic would dictate, people who exercise should live longer. Right? Well, maybe not.

On our last episode, #62- The Cardio Myth, we attempted to reframe common thinking about Aerobics. On this episode, with Dr. Jeremy Loenneke, Asst. Professor at Ole’ Miss, we discuss his recent findings that challenge long held beliefs about strength training. Does getting stronger help you live longer? And if not, what’s the point of it all?

Here’s another common belief: Developing bigger muscles causes them to become stronger. In other words, you can’t get stronger unless your muscles are also getting bigger. Obviously, true? Not according to Dr. Lonekke’s observations. He and his research team, have uncovered some interesting data that gets you saying, “Wait, what?”

You don’t want to miss this fascinating discussion between Adam and Jeremy on the influence strength training has on our strength, muscle size, health, and lifespan.
