  • Doug McGuff Video from the 21 Convention

    A very informative video on nutrition, exercise and cellular biochemistry.

    Quote Mark a number of times and is an advocate of the "Primal" lifestyle.

    Video can be viewed here.

    His book "Body by Science" is a great read if you really want to get some serious information that references studies as well. Not nearly as quick to read or as enjoyable a read as Primal Blueprint but I'm about 1/4 through and it's good.

      this video is fantastic, even though i think the convention itself is hokey. wish i could find mark's presentation there, though...

      anyway, doug mcguff is a great speaker, and i would definitely encourage folks to read body by science if you're intrigued by his message about the way that our aerobic respiration & anaerobic respiration are linked, and how the idea of 'cardio' or 'aerobics' is based on a faulty paradigm.

      i do take small exception with the length of rest periods he advocates, but in general, the book blew my mind.

          I'm interested in hearing what others have to say about the recovery time he mentions. I just finished the video and that was my main question as well.

          *yes, i understand this thread is very old.

                Here is Mark's presentation.

                Mark, McGruff and Robb Wolf are my main goto guys.
                Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
                READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

                and yes, calories DO count my little piggies

                  The recovery time that Dr McGuff advocates is based on many years of training clients. What he has found is that most trainees make better progress training once every 7 days or even less, than they do training more frequently. High intensity exercise is very demanding and one can easily over train if the "dose" is too frequent.
