Guest Bio

Menno Henselmans


Menno is the man behind Bayesian Bodybuilding. Once a former business consultant specialized in advanced statistical data analysis, Menno has MSc with distinction from the University of Warwick (UK) in that area.

Menno’s background in science and statistics helped him to develop Bayesian Bodybuilding. The Bayesian method goes beyond the scientific system. It is not just a method of collecting knowledge. Bayesian methods tell us how to form rational beliefs based on the available information. Menno’s work is thus data driven and evidence based.

Menno is a published academic author and has spoken at some of the world’s biggest evidence-based training conferences and events.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Menno’s recent contest prep: why, how and lessons learned
  • How to structure ab-libitum dieting for fat loss phases
  • The flawed, incorrect idea that “IIFYM is the only way”
