What would you ask Brad Schoenfeld?

January 24, 2014


Just a quick one from me today as it’s all go here.

I’m donning my journalist’s hat tomorrow (it’s one of those black porkpie ones with a press card tucked into the hat band) and going along to Brad Schoenfeld‘s seminar Maximal Hypertrophy, on behalf of my clients at Muscle & Fitness magazine. (Thankfully, I get to hide behind my notepad this time. I was too embarrassed to write about the time I had to be in the photos for the article, but my dog hijacked the laptop and blogged about it. He’s a better writer than I am to be honest.)

Brad is thought of as one of the leading authorities on body composition training (and he’s also a lifetime drug-free bodybuilder).

I wanted to ask those of you who are Muscle & Fitness readers, or who follow Brad’s work, or who are interested in the topics… what would you ask Brad if you were coming along?

Here’s the agenda:

1. The Mechanisms of Muscle Hypertrophy: What Makes Muscle Grow?

2. Hypertrophy Program Variables: Applying the Mechanisms to Practice

3. Hypertrophy Program Design: Periodising the Ultimate Muscle Building Program

4. Eat to Grow: Nutritional Strategies for Maximising Muscle Development

It’ll be interesting for me to hear your questions… I’ll try to get the answers from Brad, and then perhaps build the article around the most interesting answers!

Nicola Joyce writes for Muscle & Fitness books

December 21, 2012

A nice end to the week (to match the nice beginning!) My work is going to be featured in a book.

With my journalism hat on, I often write for Muscle & Fitness magazine. In fact, if you get the issue which is out at the moment, you’ll see my interview with Bronwyn Taylor – “Britain’s Strongest Schoolgirl”.

So I’m delighted to be able to tell you that my work is going to be featured in one of three books produced by the Muscle & Fitness team: Muscle and Fitness guide to Sports Nutrition.

I’ll actually be in another of the three, but not my words. Remember when I did that photoshoot with Shaun Stafford, to illustrate a strength and conditioning feature I wrote for the magazine? Well, some of the photos from the shoot have been selected for the Muscle and Fitness guide to HIIT!

The three books – “High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)”, “Sports Nutrition”, and “Weight Training Success” are all part of the “Muscle & Fitness Guide to…” series.

I’d love you to pick up a copy of the books, and there are various ways to do so

The first two will be on sale in print in the UK on 10 January 2013 and the third will follow on, going on sale on 14 March 2013. You’ll be able to get all three printed books at WH Smith and Sainsburys, or via Muscle & Fitness’s website.

The app for the digital editions is available in iTunes and Google Play – just type “Muscle and Fitness Books” into the search screen and you’ll see the blue M&F Books App logo (or you can go to it via the link on Muscle & Fitness books). The app is free to download. Once you’ve downloaded it, you’ll see six more icons: a free sample of each book and the full version for sale.

You can even get the three books as e-books, readable on any Windows or Apple desktop/laptop computer and iPad. You can get that version here. They’re encrypted, and you’ll need to download Javelin Reader but it’s all very simple and straightforward (I managed it, so it must be!)
