Yeah. It's interesting to look back at sort of the timeline of what was popular. What was mainstream like if was it the 60s into the 70s where you started to see this big running initiative. We're like culture was all about getting out and then running and then and then you kind of move into Words like the 80s where it was all like this Jazzercise is aerobic sort of effort where everybody thought that was the way that we're going to stay in shape and
be healthy. Yeah. So in fact Justin my inspiration for this book The reason why I named it, the resistance training Revolution was in the in the 70s. There was a book that was put out. In fact, if you saw the cover of this book, you'd probably recognize it's called The Complete Book of running and it's got like a lower leg in a running shoe. It was called the running. Lucien no, no, it started the running Revolution the book the book is called The Complete Book of running and when this book came out it started this huge Trend that were still in even today of people running for fitness and it was had a huge impact on there. It is right there. I mean, I know you guys have seen the yeah. It's an iconic book and it got so many people to lace up some running shoes and go and run to become fit. So I said, No, I would like to write a book that would do this for resistance training mainly because resistance training the benefits you derive from it everybody surpass any other form of exercise by itself, when you compete in a head-to-head competition for actually any goal and we can get into this. It's the best form of exercise and so I'm like, I want to defeat The Stereotype. I want the average person to to when they think to themselves I need to get fit. Think resistance training not other forms of exercise which nothing necessarily wrong with them. They're just not nearly as effective. How
did they get the medical community though behind running is the main form of exercise. It couldn't have been because of this book is it because we just didn't have the technology that we have today to be able to measure a lot of the things that you get as far as the benefits from is this
is Charlie's on resistance training for health were way behind minimal way behind right the studies we have idiots
had like a lot like further. Hanson
us. Yeah, the studies around resistance training really revolved around performance. They revolved around Olympic weightlifting and athletes. They didn't do a whole lot of studies on health. Yeah. How does it improve bone health? How does it balanced out hormone interest? How does it burn body fat?
