EP 5: Menno Henselmans – Bodybuilding and the Ketogenic Diet

posted in: Podcast | 1


Menno Henselman knows his stuff.  Menno is a physique trainer with a long history of natural bodybuilding.  He writes articles for T-Nation.com and SimplyShredded.com, as well as his own site, BayesianBodybuilding.

Menno dares to challenge the dogma that carbs are necessary for building muscle…I enjoy his writing quite a bit, in fact he is among my favorite writers on building muscle and fitness because of his rational approach to analysis and implementation of the available data.

You can build muscle without carbohydrates, a ketogenic state is just as effective for putting on mass when the body is given the proper nutrition and training.  We talk about low carb high fat bodybuilding, the carb dogma in the fitness industry, training in ketosis, how to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, and much more.  Menno is a wealth of information and I can’t wait to have him on again and talk about specifics in training.

Check out this other interview with Menno where he discusses his training methods.
