How do you grow muscle in the healthiest, strongest and fastest way possible? Whether that's for strength, size & shape or simply because it makes everything you do just that little bit easier?

This week we're going to be talking about the science of muscle growth; what to do, when and how often. Helping us tackle this one is Chemist & Personal Trainer Kevin Stock, Personal Trainer Kirk Fontaine and You. Should be a great one.

NB : I'm very keen to hear both Kevin's thinking on these areas, and yours. If you've got questions or opinions on body composition and muscle growth, join us on the Hangout. Here's how.
