#81: What Is The Minimum Amount Of Exercise To Maintain Progress?
It is easy to feel like if we can not keep up our planned workout routine, we are doomed to lose all our "gainz".
This leads to all-or-nothing approaches.
The reality is that you would be surprised at how little amount of exercise can actually maintain our aerobic, strength, and muscle.
Armed with this knowledge you can feel much more confident and comfortable doing less when your fitness may have to take a back seat to other priorities in life.
In today's episode, we break down these exact "minimum effective doses" to maintain your progress.
#80: What To Do About Stress Eating
We have all experienced it...
Something like Covid-19 can cause massive around-the-clock stress or simply a small trigger in your day can cause you to be stressed out.
We then resort to eating to handle it.
This then leads to an awful habit and response to stress.
Luckily there is something you can do about it!
Mainly, using and working on your cognitive flexibility.
The coaches dig in on the meaning of this fancy term, how you can improve yours, and even go through a little test to score your own.
#79: Why You Need Structure
Will and Gary go over the importance of structure with an exercise and eating program in today's episode.
They compare the differences of structure vs no structure when it comes to not just your workout routine, but also why structured support and accountability can be the difference between achieving your goals and overcoming your obstacles.
#78: The Problem With Exhausting Workouts
We all want to get the most out of everything we do.
So it seems natural that the more tired and exhausted we can make ourselves when we work out, the better...
Except this isn't actually the case.
Exhaustion leads to poor movement, recovery, and injuries, and burnout.
In this episode, Will and Gary go on a rant of sorts about training programs and workouts, and the main problems with the all-or-nothing approach to workouts.
They then dig into a proper approach to things and when and why all out workouts have their place.
#77: Are Artificial Sweeteners Bad For You?
On this episode of Fit For Life Radio, Gary and Will dig through the details of all things artificial sweeteners.
Do they make you gain weight? Do they have adverse health effects? Can the make you crave sugar?
Find out what the science says and if they can have a place in your diet.
