Happy Thanksgiving. Personally, I’m grateful for having this job, smart readers like yourself, and forward-thinking lifters using our app
Speaking of this job, one of my #1 ressources is MASS
. Mass stands for Monthly Applications in Strength Sport. It’s a (paid) research review about strength, hypertrophy, and nutrition research. Unlike this humble rag, in MASS, you get a full summary, write-up, and analysis of every articles covered (7 each month).
It’s created by some of the smartest guys in the industry (I’ve even cited their papers and linked to some of their articles here before):
- Eric Helms (Ph.D. in strength and conditioning from Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand, M.S. in exercise science, a second Master’s in sports nutrition, B.S. in fitness and wellness)
- Greg Nuckols (held three all-time world records in powerlifting in the 220lb and 242lb classes)
- Mike Zourdos (Ph.D. in exercise physiology, M.S. in applied health physiology, and B.S. in exercise science)
What I like the most about MASS (besides the awesome science reviews) is their audio roundtable. I listen to a lot of audios (when working out for example), and these are a huge time-saver. Each month, Eric, Greg, and Mike sit down and discuss all the studies reviewed that month. If you have no time to keep up with the written material, you’ll love the audios.
Imagine loading up a big barbell and getting ready to crush a squat PR while you listen to some of the world’s top coaches explain the science and give you tips to get massive and strong. It’s a lot of fun.
The reason I’m telling you all this is because they’re having a sale this Black Friday weekend. You can sign up for MASS at 30% off
You can even get the very special lifetime subscription (it’s the one I got). I think that one is not usually available. It’s not cheap, but I have faith these guys are here to stay. So if you can afford it (I see it as an investment), in 10 years, you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank with the money you’ve saved. To get the lifetime subscription, click here

Full disclosure: I will make a commission if you buy through my link. But that’s not why I’m telling you about MASS (I hope you’ve noticed).
They also have a group on Facebook where you can discuss the studies with Eric, Greg, and Mike. I’m there, as well as other subscribers. It’s a great place to learn and share. Perhaps I’ll see you there?
If you’re interested, just remember: their Black Friday sale
