Muscle Is Forever

Here’s the next episode of the UNCENSORED Podcasts Season 2.

Today’s topic:  Muscle is Forever

Muscle Is Forever!

Muscle Is Forever!


The term “building muscle” is the most common term we hear when referring to an increase in muscle size. This however is not the most accurate way of imagining how a muscle actually increases it’s size. A better way to think of it is inflating and deflating a balloon, and increasing the ‘rubber’ of the balloon.

From there it gets a little more complex with the incorporation of muscle specific stem cells called “satellite cells”.

In todays podcast we review the claims of an interesting self experiment done by Nate Green who gained 20lbs of lean mass in only 28 days. We determine that it’s more correct to say that he actually ‘re-inflated’ the same 20lbs of muscle mass he used to have…and that it’s perfectly normal to expect to do this for anyone who has previously been 20lbs larger.

Fact is that once you’ve built the muscle you can always get it back even after years of taking time off. And it comes back FAST!

Amazing Shape at 60 years old!

Joe Weaver 2nd Place Adonis index Open Senior Class

Joe explains how things have changed over the years and how the whole process started.

He shares some valuable information about the difference between training when you’re in your 20’s and 30’s compared to your 50’s. As a senior Adonis you’ve got to pay more attention to your rest and recover and listen to what your body is telling you.

When we’re young we tend to have an immortality complex and we tend to abuse our bodies, but a we move along in life we can’t do this anymore.

The lifelong process of working out, getting in shape and staying in shape isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon, and pacing yourself is the key to getting the most out of your body without breaking down.

Joe shares many words of wisdom for longevity and being in great shape at any age. And make no mistake about it Joe is in great shape, and a shape many 20 and 30 year olds would envy.


P.S. The breathing technique Joe refers to is called “Ujjayi”

The book Joe refers to in the podcast is called “Body Mind & Sport” by John Douillard
