Due to popular demand, we are back with another version of the Fine Print, one of our signature episodes, in which we reduce a research study from the field of Human Movement Science to its fine print; you know, all the stuff you miss when you read something the first time around.
This time Dr. J and GG tackle a first-of-its-kind study, underwritten by a prominent health club operator and managed by a distinguished medical center. The intent of the study was, purportedly, to examine the difference in fitness outcomes between a group following an exclusive program, under the auspices of a high-caliber personal trainer, and another, which was entirely self-guided.
Take this rarefied opportunity to review a study with a real research scientist, Dr. Paul Juris, as he interprets and makes sense of some of the statistics that may reveal surprising conclusions upon deeper inspection. Does the study ultimately live up to the hype? Well, Dr J and GG offer their take home messages, but, you’ll have to listen for yourself to decide what this study is really all about.
In this episode we discuss:
Storer, T.W., Dolezal, B.A., Berenc, M.N., et. al. (2014). Effect of supervised, periodized exercise training vs. self-directed training on lean body mass and other fitness variables in health club members. Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. 28(7): 1995-2006.
