What Is A Podcast?
Podcasting is a collection of technologies for automatically distributing audio and video programs over the Internet via a publish and subscribe model.

Podcasting enables independent producers to create self-published, syndicated "radio shows," while giving broadcast radio or television producers a new distribution method.

Dan reviews the science of bulking, right down to the cellular/biochemistry level of muscle fiber growth. This review includes applying Dan's Dynamic Training Approach/Variable Intensity Resistance training model, including modulating intensity, duration, and frequency.

Dan reviews the importance of preparing for the bulking cycle, planning the training schedule, the sleep factor for maximum muscle growth, and about the workload, rep range and performance of the reps, concentric and eccentric phases for best results.

Dan also covers scientific breakthroughs about muscle growth, satellite cells, muscle precursor cells, myoblasts, myotubes, and muscle fiber growth and repair. Also included are some tips on evaluating resistance programs, which ones to avoid, turning your existing program in to a bulking program, or creating a new program.

Some of the top resistance training exercises for bulking include:

These are in addition to single joint and dumbbell exercises at moderate intensity for warming up, after the heavy workload exercises on heavy training days, and on alternating moderate intensity training days for complete muscle fiber development. Weider Training Principles and Weider Bodybuilding Training System DVD's are also mentioned.
