Dr. Doug McGuff on Strength Training Using Body by Science: Tonight on Philosophy in Action Radio

By Unknown

In tonight's episode of Philosophy in Action Radio Interview, I'll interview Dr. Doug McGuff on "Strength Training Using Body by Science."

I've used Dr. McGuff's methods for over a year and half now, and I've kept myself in great shape for riding horses and skiing with just 30 minutes of weight training per week -- with little soreness and minimal risk of injury. (You can read my periodic reports here.)

Most people suppose that fitness requires long "cardio" sessions of running, biking, stair-climbing, or the like. In contrast, Dr. Doug McGuff advocates brief, infrequent, and high-intensity weight training using slow movements. Does this approach work? What are its benefits and costs compared to other fitness regimens?

Dr. Doug McGuff is an emergency medicine doctor practicing in South Carolina with a long-time interest in fitness, weightlifting, and high-intensity exercise. In 1997, he opened Ultimate Exercise, where he and his his instructors explore the limits of exercise. Dr. McGuff is the best-selling co-author of Body by Science and The Body by Science Question and Answer Book. You can read Dr. McGuff's blog at
