There are people who like working out and there are people who ‘just like working out. Remember how we talked about the astonoshing Frank Medrano in one of our recent posts (Read Here), which talked about how he defies all the rules of gravity? Well, if that wasn’t enough, here we are again, with one more name that stands our in the field of body building/athleticism and physical science all across the world.
And that name is Jim Stoppani!
Who is he?
Jim Stoppani received his doctorate in exercise physiology with a minor in biochemistry from the University of Connecticut. Following graduation, he served as a postdoctoral researcher in the prestigious John B. Pierce Laboratory and Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at Yale University School of Medicine, where he investigated the effects of exercise and diet on gene regulation in muscle tissue with great success.
He was awarded the Gatorade Beginning Investigator in Exercise Science Award in 2002 by the American Physiological Society for his groundbreaking research and is one of the most respected name in the domain.
Jim Stoppani the author
He has written thousands of articles on exercise, nutrition and health and is author of:
– Encyclopedia of Muscle & Strength (Human Kinetics, 2006)
– Co-author of the New York Times Bestseller, LL Cool J’s Platinum 360 Diet and Lifestyle (Rodale, 2010)
– Co-author of the book Stronger Arms & Upper Body (Human Kinetics, 2008)
– Co-author of the chapter “Nutritional Needs of Strength/Power Athletes” in the textbook Essentials of Sports Nutrition and Supplements (Humana Press, 2008).
One of his achievements is that he is the creator of the Platinum 360 Diet as found in the book, LL Cool J’s Platinum 360 Diet and Lifestyle (Rodale, 2010) and creator of the diet program found in the book, Mario Lopez’s Knockout Fitness (Rodale, 2008), which are followed by a huge audience that likes to live a healthy and sound life.
Where he stands different
It seems that with Stoppani we have a man who properly studied what he is writing about and in his articles makes sure to point at the science that backs his words. The claim at the top his website, “using real science to design real programs for unreal results,” should find a lot of you in rejoice.
Dr. Stoppani has been the personal nutrition and health consultant for numerous celebrity clients, such as LL Cool J, Dr. Dre, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Mario Lopez, and has appeared on the NBC television show Extra as an extra life changer.
