He joins us right now MacKey chills on a friend fitness and wellness expert expert rather saint Charles parish hospital. -- tell me about body building and a little bit about the history of it how it started what does science say. And and the thing I find ironic about this is its originally may be was reported to be. You know lack health finance and and build a new body up Indians strong and and and Haggis healthy is best word I can use an end. When you look at some of the techniques involved to get that look it's anything but health. You know I -- -- -- talk about the history you know this goes back to them. I guess to the eighteen hundreds but when you really what it it would and we hear people picking at adult it was. The old Tom things that you potentially could read about it no idea is six it was Charles Chaplin and and then on the didn't seem to do new things well and you just took the -- -- enemies that that -- To god that I'll tell you almost scrawny and then in the would be on the -- and then there's the. Died -- -- strong girl looks more. Aren't that. And and then. The first thing that I targeting you not been around some are right from the Kabul on which has a social. 400000 readers which is targeted to 284. -- Oriented to the type of training. But what what -- -- in the bi -- I came out was called dynamic resist and that's all you're between the call to pay. It variation so metrics and then seeing something that people my age I'm sixty -- might remember called Opel worker which was this. There's despite that the contracting in the union all the appeared determined and then he let me go in a -- Team that was dynamic. Pension which was -- interest and so basically. It wasn't an ice and static contractions. That you holes while you pushed a -- in and out. So I symmetric is just pushing your hand against your hand MacKey went -- -- If you take -- people now where it should actually it input that. -- pomp and their hands together in confirmed their chests like -- getting rate to pray and push in that would be a I symmetric contraction. Dynamic I symmetric contraction. Would be to do the exact same thing. And then take your arms together -- The feeling like we're getting ready. To release and it died and pull -- picking -- -- -- Dynamic means movement and. Static contraction means they're there bet that your compression -- trophy they almost -- two different things that you can make it work that weren't done. Contraction back. In the early 1950s. Surely. Well I guess they had -- term. Because right now -- much emphasis is placed a call -- training it would you contract while lengthening them open all at all. That the concentric contraction which means I contracted muscle while short bills. Actual. All muscle that muscles high -- high -- a lot of you actually get stronger with the same picturing out a little more dangerous. -- -- All all based on eccentric little -- your -- If you take a baseball player. And -- them outfield and the picture wines are all right the first motion picture -- shoppers away from it. And that -- -- -- and the wind -- go into quarters squat attractiveness centric little. You load the Marshall. Or they try. When you -- -- edict lifting army you'll remember you get a lot of -- on the back of your shoulder but first immediately go to. In fact an 88 and that's an eccentric Lexington. Where where you're taken hamstrings and your salary that you're coming. Most all -- Is built on centric training and I'll stop for many years. They were people treat -- like it's trying go to opposite in the training in and that's where you can get more -- Although centric training at a potential. Stranger. It is the solution to preventing injury -- dynamic or a very well ballistic movement in sports such as. What we're getting great to see happen this thing that first movement the quarterback comes up at large bucket -- technical. His -- is like a forward press in golf almost where yet. He you do suddenly get everything Nolan. Well yeah well. And that's basically number -- cult. Got to talking our friend MacKey she'll stone about body building and did mr. Olympia contest coming on. NBC they've decided to start televising it again and then TU about the whole body building thing ladies especially. Oil men depending on. You know -- real men if you retirement. The other man answer right now ladies of retirement of the ladies or men are you talking about. Ladies that body build and -- big muscular look and ladies the big muscle guys -- the -- -- an attractive or grotesque I'd really like to hear from the end. During the break Shelton -- we're talking what Mackie -- -- we're doing rather what -- shall stone suggested before and that's where you. It's nice symmetric where you pressure hands against each other like Ukraine. And Agassi eccentric part of it where you hold them up above your head and we didn't build any muscle mass. But we did get three prayers -- yeah. And -- is that is that OK and acceptable outcome as well. -- -- -- again if you actually prayers and I think that -- actually you may have misstated. -- -- movement does not corner -- your that was the dynamic movement that means movement is eccentric rate that would more confused people back where you. All links and I'm also during the contraction. Called forest itself. If you do legally -- -- you're you're actually you know when Hillary let down. -- your long game also but also contracting as well so it will deter or talked about we we were -- again dynamic. They're dynamic cut of the static contraction. I'm sorry I misspoke and certainly no -- doesn't change his mind. You trained -- Serena Williams Armenians. Like it came back for thirty days with some greens have been mistreated and cycled back program like a -- the 20s July gimme gimme some of the other big names -- really -- -- While I do not go back from god I'm forty years but it was Michael stinks to the ancient scripture actually Willis is our chief.

I'm honored that you would have beyond. There's a mile and a bottle that they don't have Riddick -- money or Serena Williams monies so there's a chance to get. Some advice from a really a world renowned respected by. Big time athletes like you wouldn't believe fitness and wellness expert -- she'll -- visit saint Charles. Parish hospital -- would allow them also give back direct conversation a MacKey gives him more time after the news. A ticket let's get semis and get some people some. Professional advice may gal in New Orleans played on your end -- it WL. -- -- more are more quick question here a local dispute forty. Are all muscles you know was the belts. We've only -- maximize. Student. You're chasing. I wrote a book call me an art and science building muscle I -- -- -- years ago written seven books but that was one. That was a steady that I -- -- Alison Elliott and the election medical center which is now culture -- to church we actually -- case study are comparing. We didn't it was a one of these random control studies but we actually put twenty people program. Which we used six week resistance training program alternate between upper body exercises along with court creating and and sprinting -- a week. Our and then we added to the that a diet based on your energy expenditure which has formula back and we can actually measure we do venture. And I'll wait to check your body fat and hold well based on formulas we now maker with the Texas which is. Well since the -- scanned for sixty dollar we can see where the body isn't much in whatever. But the fact is that over -- six and we edited out we needed weight and achieve which is just ask digesting a more practical work out. -- the action that would be a carbohydrate powder or if you combined it was -- A colleague -- Gatorade. And then lastly is a little bit create team. People eighteen years of reachable with appropriate medical clearance for kidney function or whatever. And over eight week here over over 86 week period. Following the plan. People in ten pounds of muscle now let's define what that can scale down. Again ten pounds in the -- that's where I think a lot of missiles -- Real. Question back and ask the right question -- warning and pound ball on the scale or -- -- gained ten -- -- -- because it. The program or a program helped -- you gained ten pounds of muscle. Are right but lotteries can't counts of well it gave me your objectives and pounds of muscle but this game -- -- change. And I think -- of people happened misnomer. EU practical and determine how much involved in muscle. Cult -- and secular leave you should happen particular situation means. In using something architects which is available we are. Actually from. -- Basically happened technically tissue is link issue. That is skeletal muscle your candidate. And your -- -- -- are all protein matrix is in fact if you track. And your bones and then you can tell your -- so when you can. You could actually how much. You could do away from a peaceful. Which diet change and have to -- The technical national and the protection scheme. But typically require approaching for an individual. Is structuring. And and a bit of strength trainer. Would be as much as one point eight grams to two grams of protein per kilogram of body -- Well kilograms to appoint counsel basically that would be one. One point 822. Grams. And occupy. And that my intention and along with some people you might consider export. More than me on how long considered that. Bet bet the way -- pleasure -- takes into consideration did scale. So I'm basing my protein requirements or scandal. That has voted and it also has in the and why -- -- trying to use routine based on the amount of fat people and so the Morse is. Dictated formula -- agree that the -- -- on the amount of lean muscle issue. I'd hang on MacKey will pick it up here going come back Miguel I hope that answered your question if not. Give you shouted at that is in MacKey exactly what I would say. You know put an extra ten pounds on a bar but that's just me yell at Lionel. MacKey is their guests and if you want any advise on Morgan out get a text that comes in a son is introducing and guys not. Joke and he says what's the least amount of exercise I can do and still remain city's 59 -- -- and ask MacKey he trained due David Blake he's busy with.

Ready jaguar opinion -- You consider pumped up body builders attractive or grotesque 95% saying grotesque. 5% attractive in MacKey it is to get back to what we originally. And had you won four and ending not that big idea to give people a question askew. Two and says she questions. When it comes these body builders what in the world do they do to get these muscles so big and the waist lines of small and is it really healthy or not. Actually back in 190 laws applicable to -- she. Cole that so many story and just a pet currently -- a week training so that anything we were reasons to help on equipment. Over to the rafters somewhere around outside it under the bleachers and pushed into lane stadium you know like -- -- and now ironically I. Built the first rate him as a volunteer the chilly but it history and -- that -- -- or all that. At the -- in the carport behind my house well as a football and I walked on to -- of course whether -- A bill PGM appearance look across the street and -- stadium. Shall we call -- march at the same equipment as Pittsburgh steeler Lynn and Ricky got it for me but again. Well I had this Super Bowl extra -- Steelers back and it's Rocky Bleier. Are cherry branch or like -- well John Cole all these great start clinical work in my house. -- -- They pulled us out of the pack the stadium and -- all my drive like and what will work out -- Michael. And this -- used to -- He is. Our -- swore an acre. And it was no place to take him in the wallet back in early so these may cost you about our margin from the steel is working out there I mean you -- And in so everything is brought -- brought Arnold Schwarzenegger. To not -- urging him he would he would. Come more to do interview on your station. And actually again as I did and used them back and India is meant I would really like Eugene bull a couple holes are in town. At least a close friend with the partner Mike -- has -- or. Who my partners were the leaders of the Arnold classic which is the biggest. Bodybuilding event in the history of the world it pulls all 200000. People -- the campus of Ohio State. And they have every -- and not just building -- Apple's sporting recreational and for people to come actually. You don't ask a question about what these body used to back. So to speak in the day the body builders war. And shoulders and everybody intrigued. Your knowledge of human physiology. And their understanding are on full growth and I'm gonna actor used steroids Margaret. And their ability to understand. About diet. Wood and -- debt -- and what they. We do and -- just and in view our research study published in the journal string. And -- condition actually. It's in the it's in the current issue street conditioned terminal a which would be actually which you need cheap and people. You don't help bought the one city. And it brought on by purple and higher -- sent immediately for competition. In an effort to look and field goal and he wants it. Back. -- In simple terms it represents. The way of increasing hydration. In the muscle -- actually -- well in the short term appear. It's called hyper hydration. And body builders see this really like two different ways to do a bit based concepts repetitions in time and that's just. Billion high repetition -- speed Internet sector and he lips with the links -- sixty seconds rest and the second unit it's. War. Repeated the issues combined with shorter restaurant sit there and increased essence. -- so cruel to our attention to -- well perhaps the only thirty seconds rest. They they also. Another option to the -- used to before which call up a true option. -- body builder by reform our high intensity. That might see. You know and -- certain like 6070%. Of the maximum 80% of its maximum. They even equally well by lord. Well -- that might be twenty to 50%. And they -- that the trucks. Maybe the most significant way to increase muscle cross sectional area end. Are you -- people are old news. The people health club. You've seen this up there you grip on arms outstretched. To the side and you grab handle both sides can -- That. And you can go the opposite way or that -- like extension the -- Our electoral closure exercises. That gravel lot of muscle fiber to a ball in motion so that is something to help look. Body builders in the competition. Will build up in -- chiseled. Away. And then -- we're -- year -- if you want to talk about them the most and hurt or strictly spiders. That would be on. The public. View credit cards out. On the big competition to get like that. Because -- -- lucky enough competition. The other and that that won't happen is pure competition. Before the competition. They'll use something to bring up the temperature. Because as the temperature up thing. Literally come up to the short -- -- air conditioning get cool show back it was called vascular relation. -- -- even things up these. The Catholic actually do that well so I'm actually. We have some light lifting equipment for the guys. And girls might say the girl you guys. It can get the effect that. About what they do now I don't think question. Bet they are quite a few body abilities. Who are not as healthy. Especially -- -- power intact possibilities and what pressures. Theoretically can be much higher and at risk. All they do so from joint pain but you know tell me any athlete the -- -- I don't think they stand separate and apart. I think they stand in just went there and I think that's why in BC moved to do that. Still have a Steely Dan give a way to get to but a quick question on text question. Push up zoom every day or every other day. Caught present what you look at -- you wanted to populated to a very short range motion out on the bottom if you wanna get the full range. -- you know you do -- -- -- answer the question are really combined as the the push up with a clay court you holed up in the extended position. Good way to a -- in the shoulders up to sell -- answer that question from before. To body builders get body just more fear like this more feel like an RX is in and leaning any research. That says they really. Don't see what they look like -- -- to them and it's never enough and female body builders are -- getting away from the huge manly physique skin back to lean muscles. Well answer that combines the way we -- there is something. But it is more here there's. Two support. Actually we're where it should distorted image. Answered -- in a couple of women.
