Fasting - is this truly something worth our time and attention or is just the next "cool thing" in the health and fitness industry? Sal Di Stefano (on Instagram @mindpumpsal), one of the hosts of the incredible Mind Pump podcast, has decades of experience he is bringing to the table in this interview all about the many benefits and dangers to properly conducting a fast. Also, we dive into many other half truths, whole lies, and other misbeliefs that people should be paying attention to when it comes to maximizing their workouts, diets, and overall mindset towards improving their lives.
More about today's expert guestl... Sal was 14 years old when he touched his first weight and from that moment he was hooked. Growing up asthmatic, frequently sick and painfully skinny, Sal saw weightlifting as a way to change his body and his self-image. In the beginning, Sal’s body responded quickly to his training but then his gains slowed and then stopped altogether. Not one to give up easily, he began reading every muscle building publication he could get his hands on to find ways to bust through his plateau. He read Arnold’s Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding, Mentzer’s Heavy Duty, Kubrick’s Dinosaur Training, and every muscle magazine he could find; Weider’s Muscle and Fitness, Flex, Iron Man and even Muscle Media 2000. Each time he read about a new technique or methodology he would test it out in the gym. At age 18 his passion for the art and science of resistance training was so consuming that he decided to make it his profession and become a personal trainer. By 19 he was managing health clubs and by 22 he owned his own gym. After 17 years as a personal trainer he has dedicated himself to bringing science and TRUTH to the fitness industry.
