I hear many discussions and reading several articles regarding metabolism and client training, specifically, using the “MST” Metabolism Scare Tactic to sell training. When discussing Metabolism with clients do you also explain the concept and need of determing their “BMR” Basil Metabolic Rate as well.
MST!? There’s a name for this sh-stuff, is there a manual? Anyhow; Yes, I think metabolism is being discussed quite frequently between provider and client. Usually I see the language condensed and spoke in analogies (Endo/Meso/Ecto-morph, or “..like a furnace”) but its diffinitely there. I personally cover BMR with my clients, enough to show number ranges. Its got science behind it in various different studies, and science is good.
