Aerobic Health & Performance | How To Improve It?
If you have ever done ANYTHING to follow lifestyle improvements, breathing or mindset techniques, ANYTHING that is considered a healthier choice (by me haha) you are unknowingly doing something to either increase oxygen levels in the cell, or at least doing something that reduces oxygen levels by the least.
Your poor lifestyle and habits are lowering your cellular oxygen.
Low oxygen levels create a more ANAEROBIC environment in your mitochondria, where energy production occurs.
The worst thing for health, for all living things on earth, is chronic low levels of oxygen.
Aerobic is Health | Anaerobic is increased stress products, poor health, &
Oxygen is Key to Life
Inflammation lowers cellular oxygen
Stress lowers cellular oxygen
Very brief anaerobic exercise can be good (for some), but I'm talking about long term aerobic or anaerobic environments.
If you want to feel better, get fitter, be healthier, or perform better in everything you do, you need more oxygen in your cells.
I let you know how I got 'fitter' without even exercising.
I explain deeper theories around aerobic and MAF exercise, and how breathing rate is more important than heart rate.
1 Breathing influences cellular oxygen
2 inflammation lowers cellular oxygen
3 Oxidative stress lowers cellular oxygen
4 Stress lowers cellular oxygen
All life on earth needs oxygen. At the top of everything your lifestyle habits are trying to change/improve, they are all under the category of "ways to increase oxygen in your cells and mitochondria"

Why Muscles Cramp
An original look at WHY MUSCLES CRAMP, by Ironman World Champion & Health/Performance Coach Pete Jacobs.
Driven by passion to understand his fatigue and health issues he had encountered since his teenage years, Pete has discovered that most ailments can be explained through the lens of ENERGY PRODUCTION processes.
And no ailment is more obviously linked to the need for efficient energy production than the actual act of moving a muscle which clearly uses energy to do so!
ENERGY IS ATP [Adenosine Triphosphate]. ATP is produced in the mitochondria through a combination of factors. And it is how these combination of factors are available or limited that changes the ability to produce ATP & move a muscle.
The result of missing some factors that allow efficient energy production can be an overload of stress and a massive reduction in ATP production, and therefore NO ENERGY TO MOVE THE MUSCLE and the muscle spasms and CRAMPS.
The main factors that cause cramps.
LOW ENERGY PRODUCTION
Low oxygen - over-breathing (like hyperventilating), inflammation,
Low minerals - electrolytes - Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium
Inflammation - food, illness, stress, high blood sugar.
Oxidative stress - from exercising too hard (or too long).
Repetitive neural fatigue.
Listen to the podcast to get more details and some more explanations on how to fix your cramps, and if it helps please leave a review on Apple podcast app, or google reviews :)
thanks for listening.

Breathe Less | Live Longer | Niraj Naik Interview
This episode has special guest Niraj Naik, who is a leading breathwork teacher, and highly regarded health practitioner. He has some very interesting information on the importance of building carbon dioxide tolerance, which allows higher levels of oxygen into the cells.
Niraj Naik – ex-pharmacist turned holistic health expert, founder of the international school of breathwork Soma Breath. He started his path in healing others, as a community pharmacist, yet after several years he found himself a patient of stress-related depression and ulcerative colitis. This was a wake-up call that made him embark on a journey of profound self-healing and education.
Known internationally as the Renegade Pharmacist, Niraj is dedicated to educating others on topics of holistic health, breathwork, meditation, and more.
In addition to his website and blog therenegadepharmacist.com, he has created many other brands related to health and healing.
Thanks so much to Niraj for sharing this important perspective on breathwork and limiting our breath.
What Is The Keto Diet & Ketosis
Ketosis is natural for everyone. It is the adaptation to use ketones, not sugars, for energy, especially in the brain.
As you burn fat, fat [by-products] can be converted into ketones (but does not happen for everyone all the time)
A "KETO DIET" does not guarantee ketosis.
Fat adaptation does not mean you are automatically adapted to producing and/or using ketones.
As a professional Ironman Triathlete I was very fat adapted, and very aerobic, and yet I experienced situations during/post races where I bonked because I had low blood sugar and was not adapted to producing/using ketones.
In this episode I clear up a few things
* Confusion around ketosis
* Confusion between ketosis and keto diet
* Confusion between needing to choose one diet
* And lots more!
