Testosterone: For those who aren't familiar with SWIS, give them a quick overview.

Dr. Ken Kinakin:

T: That'll be a great resource for sure. So how did the symposium come about?

KK:

T: Wow. Sounds great!

KK:

T: Is the symposium open to anyone?

KK:

T: What's the focus of this year's symposium?

KK:

T: Cool. You're one of the most knowledgeable guys in this field, so what did you learn from last year's symposium?

KK:

T: That seems to be a theme of many advanced people in this field: there is no right answer or perfect way to do anything, just a lot of approaches.

KK:

T: Last year a few people presented on acupuncture. Is this becoming more of an accepted practice?

KK:

T: Now when you talk about meridians and energy pathways, it almost sounds like you're talking about chakras and tree hugging and all that new age stuff. But acupuncture is legitimate, huh?

KK:

T: You've also talked about a blood test than can help people understand how they react to carbs and other aspects of their diets. What's the latest info on that?

KK:

T: Oh really? How can we fix that? Probiotics?

KK:

T: As simple as that, huh?

KK:

T: Wait a minute, you mean to actually make chewing motions with a mouthful of protein shake?

KK:

T: So you're not really grinding up the protein any smaller; it's more of a Pavlovian response.

KK:

T: Very fascinating stuff! Now what's this about people making their shakes too thick?

KK:

T: Interesting. Now tell us a little about digestive enzymes.

KK:

T: Which ones?

KK:

T: So would bodybuilders just go for the ones that help with protein?

KK:

T: So how could a bodybuilder use these enzymes?

KK:

T: Interesting stuff! Hypothetical situation: Let's say I get a weight training injury. What can I do myself, besides going to the doctor, to aid in recovery so I can get back to the gym?

KK:

T: I hear people talking about how squatting and heavy weight training compresses the spine. To decompress the spine, they hang on chinning bars and use gravity boots. Does that really help?

KK:

T: So with the gravity boots where you hang upside down...

KK:

T: What other new equipment has been developed in this area?

KK:

T: Well, as always, you're leaving us flabbergasted here with new info. Thanks a lot for talking with us.
