doug-1Recently Dr. McGuff gave a brief seminar about the content in our book Body By Science at a book signing that happened to be recorded on video tape. I’m going to post this seminar as a series, covering different topics covered in the book ranging from “cardio” to “Whom Can You Trust?”

It is my hope to provide higher quality videos of this talk (and others) on this site in the near future. In the meantime I will upload these excerpts on and post links to the presentations here on this blog. The first one is up and (as always) Doug gives a masterful presentation of the material covered in our Introductory chapter. The link to watch this video is below:

doug-2I have just added Part Two of Dr. McGuff’s lecture on Body By Science in which Doug provides an overview of Chapter One. The central theme being what exactly are “health” and “fitness” and why they are not necessarily intrinsically linked. Here is the link to Part Two:

doug-3In this excerpt, Dr. McGuff explores the true nature of cardiovascular exercise during a seminar he gave at a recent book signing. The realities of “anaerobic” and “aerobic” pathways and his concept of “Global Metabolic Conditioning” (the touchstones of Chapter Two) are examined in detail. Here is the link to Part Three:

doug-4In this video (taken from a recent lecture Dr. McGuff gave at a book store), Doug speaks about Chapter 3 of our book Body By Science, in which he details the Dose-Response relationship of exercise. Along the way he touches on the content of other chapters such as Enhancing The Body’s Response To Exercise (Chapter 6) and Tweaking The Exercise Stimulus (Chapter 7). Here is the link to this video:

doug-5This is a two-part video that contains Dr. McGuff’s presentation of some of the key points of Chapter 9 of Body By Science. This is an excellent summary of the actual science underlying how human beings lose body fat and the role of high-intensity exercise in optimizing the fat loss process. Here are the links:

vee-chinThis is NOT a new video, but I thought visitors to our site might be interested in seeing Vee Ferguson of Exercise Inc. (Indianapolis) performing a 2-minute chin up (one minute up, one minute down) under the watchful eye of Bo Railey. This is an incredibly intense workout for the upper torso as Vee demonstrates  phenomenal physical strength. Here is the link to this video:

vee1This is the first video of a multi video series on workouts featuring the protocol contained in our book Body By Science.  In this video, Dr. Doug McGuff puts trainer Vee Ferguson through his weekly high-intensity workout. The video was shot at Bo Railey’s facility Exercise Inc., in Indianaoplis. Ferguson is an amazingly strong person as evidenced here: 300 pound Nautilus pullovers and negative-only chins with an extra 200 pounds strapped to his waist. There are more videos coming.
