Three Bro Science Myths Dissected

Bro Science is becoming a scourge. If anyone so much as utters something that sounds fallacious, you can bet there will be someone there to point and laugh in scorn and derision decrying “Bro Science!” This is no more apparent than on our favorite social media outlets. In this case, arguments would turn bloody and fatal if half the people behind the keyboards acted as they speak. I digress, however.

"Not only does Layne talk the talk, he's walked the walk. I recommend listening to and reading his resources to any of my friends looking for science-backed fitness information to guide them on their path of knowledge expansion within the realm of fitness. He's one of the few people i've found to be a reliable, educational, no b.s. resource."
