Dr. Scotty Butcher: Energy Systems, Conditioning & Metabolic Health
Today we welcome one of Kathryn's mentors, Dr. Scotty Butcher back to the podcast for a conversation about energy systems. Every time you move, your body is using and re-synthesizing energy. Learn where that energy comes from and why high intensity exercise has metabolic and muscle building benefits. Scotty will help you understand aerobic and anaerobic energy systems, balancing strength and conditioning, and what is actually fuelling your training. You will also learn why mid-workout rest breaks are vital to replenish energy in order to feel successful and efficient in exercise.

Approachable, safe and thorough expertise
Excellent podcast whether you’re a beginner, old hand or ‘lapsed’ at exercising and incorporating strength training. I like that there are short one topic episodes as well as long form interviews that help me build confidence and reconnect with enjoying mindful strength training.
Merci beaucoup! ^_^v
Tons of great conversations to hear
This covers so many different aspects of body/mind practices and is a chance to explore really broadly. Well worth listening.
Interesting, thought-provoking, variety, easy to absorb
I love listening to this podcast. The variety of topics is interesting and I find that I either learn something new or have a new idea for contemplation. Thanks for hosting Kathryn and Kyle!
