    Aerobic Health & Performance | Aerobic Deficiency Syndrome.

    Aerobic Health & Performance | Aerobic Deficiency Syndrome.

    Aerobic Deficiency Syndrome is common, and it effects your ability to be healthy, perform, recovery, be resilient, and feel energetic.



    Coined in the 80's by health and performance legend Dr Phil Maffetone Aerobic Deficiency Syndrome (ADS) occurs when a person has lots the ability for their cells to efficiently transfer oxygen in, which effects nutrient delivery and energy production and leads to many chemical, hormonal, and physical injuries.



    'Aerobic' (meaning 'with oxygen') is not just a category of exercise - 'aerobic' is the optimal state of health for you, your cells, and for peak performance.



    Anearoic (meaning 'without oxygen') is also both a category of exercise, and a measure of your health every minute of your day.



    In this podcast episode from Live Your Own Fit Health & Performance Coaching:



    Pete explains the clear differences and benefits between anaerobic and aerobic health that you see everyday, and you also see it obviously in hospitals. Oxygen is Good!



    * Aerobic Deficiency Syndrome: Do you have it? Are you at risk for it?

    * What are you doing that is lowering your oxygen levels and increasing your health and fatigue risks?

    * Anaerobic exercise creates low oxygen in your cells, so stop doing it!

    * Aerobic exercise is good for your health

    * Anaerobic exercise is only ok to do if you already have a big aerobic capacity first!

    * How to rebuild your aerobic base for increased oxygen for health and performance.



    Aerobic Deficiency Syndrome symptoms



    * high resting heart rate (HR)

    * high HR during easy/moderate exercise

    * Shortness of breath during easy exercise

    * Shallow rapid breathing

    * Feeling of 'lactic acid' during short moderate exercise efforts

    * Fatigue

    * Aches and pains

    * low tolerance to carbon dioxide (CO2)

    * Weakness - loss of power

    * Inflammation

    * Susceptible to other stress inputs - easily 'overloaded' with stress.

    How Does Stress Affect Health & Performance ?

    How Does Stress Affect Health & Performance ?

    How does stress create fatigue, and illness, low energy, chronic disease, depression, poor performance, bad skin, IBS and many more symptoms?



    Pete explains there are many different types of stress, but they all have a similar effect, albeit in a couple of different ways, which results in the same problem of 'inhibited energy production', meaning you feel tired, and your cells are not functioning optimally.



    Mitochondrial dysfunction is a hallmark of poor health and many symptoms you may not yet associate with poor health. This episode helps you see your health, and your energy production ability (in the mitochondria), as one and the same thing.



    Why are you tired one day, and then ok the next? Or ok one day, and then tired the next?



    Daily fluctuations in the several major inputs of stress need to be accounted for in the big picture of health.



    Health, performance and energy are all the same, and you can learn how to increase your energy, reduce fatigue, improve your health, on todays podcast.

    How to Control Ego

    How to Control Ego

    This episode is with me, Pete Jacobs Ironman World Champion, and I am giving insight into my routine of mindset practice, and how to control ego, so you can achieve your best, just like it worked for me.



    Hawaii Ironman Triathlon is a tough race for anyone, but training for it is even tougher, especially when you know you have fatigue issues and can easily over-train. My experience with fatigue was actually what helped me learn about ego, and therefore helped my win in Kona, Hawaii.



    My three key points for how to control ego are;



    1.Be present.



    A quiet present mind cancels out your ego. You can’t have fears, doubts, worry, anger, etc. if your mind is in the present moment. Use a trigger word, a thought of gratitude, or just a blank quiet mind to control ego. Ego exclusively exists in thoughts of past or future.



    2. Turn Your Weakness into Your Strength 



    I embraced the fact that I could not train as much as my competitors, and by accepting my weakness I could follow my instincts, and become the best I could be.



     



    3. Do three things each day that are working towards your goal.



    Monday was always my rest day, but I made sure I focused on three things that day that would help my mind and body be in better shape on race day.

    Understanding Chronic Fatigue

    Understanding Chronic Fatigue

    Hi Pete here, since I was a teenager I’ve dealt with several symptoms of poor health, including chronic fatigue, and want to say to you - 'I understand how you feel'.



    If you have experienced even one day of fatigue, this podcast will help you. 



    If you have experienced chronic fatigue, depression, brain fog, anxiety and many other symptoms of poor health, then you will hear your story in this podcast and also some helpful tips, support, and empathy from me here today.



    I share my struggles, my story, my failures and the wins I’ve had by embracing, accepting, and understanding what was happening in my body.



    Since I was a teenager I had fatigue issues, and I learnt to manage them to become Ironman World Champion. I share my tips, and what I have learnt since winning Kona about how fatigue accumulates and how we can mitigate the impact of our lifestyles.



    I love sharing my story so other people know they are not the only one to have experienced this problem that makes you feel hopeless, useless, and misunderstood in so many ways.



    Let’s join together, and if this story sounds like you, or someone you know, then share this with them and let them know you can talk openly about how hard simple things can be when you feel the fatigue and other symptoms.
