By day, I’m a skeletal muscle physiologist in a laboratory at the University of Tampa. But I also have a secret—OK, it’s no secret. I absolutely love bodybuilding and lifting weights. Ever since I was a kid, I knew I wanted to be a scientist studying sports performance, and bodybuilding in particular.

To me, bodybuilding is fascinating because it’s based on the ultimate dichotomy: gaining size and getting shredded at the same time. These shouldn’t mix, right? But they do, as we see in our lab on a regular basis.

At any given time, we’re doing approximately six experiments on bodybuilding. We can look at muscle from the bone to the skin; we can scan your whole body and tell you the most accurate ways to look at fat. You name it, we can analyze it.

I want to bring this sport to a new level with the latest science has to offer, and I want you to ride along with me.

Pull up a chair and get out your notebook. Mass Class is about to begin.
