Evidence Based Coaching
Foundation of Experience:
Our team has spent a decade testing training techniques and nutrition paradigms, collecting and analyzing data, consistently improving our strategies to develop the most effective programs for each individual ShyTown client.
Combined with Evan’s experience leading Exercise & Nutrition research – you get to seamlessly leverage science to optimize every aspect of YOUR program.
Evan will deal with the highly complex physiology, you just enjoy the benefits of putting it into action.
Our internal network of PhDs and scientists are consulted with weekly to discuss and evaluate new developments in exercise and nutrition research. For two main reasons:
- When we get better, so do you.
- To ensure our current strategies are utilizing best practice.
How do we define “best practice” strategies?
- Demonstrated record of safety
- Strength of available scientific evidence
- Ensures quantifiable progress toward your goals
- Consistent with the lifestyle you desire
In our view, no strategies are inherently good or bad, but rather what is best for you. Using a combination of science and diverse experience – Evan will tailor you a program that is exactly that.
Previous Data from our Scientists in the NEP Lab:
Title: “Muscle time under tension during resistance exercise stimulates differential muscle protein sub-fractional synthetic responses in men.”
These results suggest that the time the muscle is under tension during exercise may be important in optimizing muscle growth; this understanding enables us to better prescribe exercise to those wishing to build bigger muscles and/or to prevent muscle loss that occurs with ageing or disease.
Title: “Low-load high volume resistance exercise stimulates muscle protein synthesis more than high-load low volume resistance exercise in young men.”
These results suggest that low-load high volume (lighter weight, high reps) resistance exercise is more effective in inducing acute muscle anabolism than high-load low volume (heavy weight, fewer reps) or work matched resistance exercise modes.
