Gymchat 215 - The Health, Fitness, & Fat Loss Benefits of GARLIC (with Kurtis Frank)

Strength gains, fat loss, recovery and a whole lot more.


As you saw in the Gymchat last week, we talk a great deal about supplementation on Straight to the Bar. To assist with strength gains, fat loss, recovery and a whole lot more.

This time we're taking a close look at one item in particular - garlic. When to have it in the form of food, and when to take it in pill form; mechanisms of action ( mainly hydrogen sulphide signalling ); potential benefits to body composition and of course the various research surrounding it.

Helping us uncover this fascinating topic is Examine.com's own Kurtis Frank, joined by Strongman & Personal Trainer Josh Hewett. Details below.
