    Ep. 481: Aging Strong: How We Feel Fit + Athletic After 40 with Rachel Cosgrove

    Ep. 481: Aging Strong: How We Feel Fit + Athletic After 40 with Rachel Cosgrove

    We’ve all heard some 20-year-old trainer say that “age is just a number” when it comes to our training, but the truth is that fitness in our 40’s and beyond is different than what we used to do! Our bodies, hormones, and metabolisms are changing and that means we have to change our workout methods if we want to stay healthy and fit as we age. We know just how important it is to put on muscle, so today we’re chatting with Rachel Cosgrove about her new book, Age Strong, and why talking about women’s fitness after 40 matters so much. We want to look and feel good for as long as we can, and it starts with adapting our workouts to what works best at every age.

    Why women’s fitness after 40 matters [1:44]
    Real life women with real life success stories [5:28]
    Putting on muscle as we age [9:38]
    The fear of injury [10:39]
    Shifting our relationship with cardio [13:15]
    Why aren’t more women lifting weights? [16:33]
    Programming with pictures so you know what you’re doing [19:11]
    Training for people new to weights [21:07]
    Focus on the fundamentals [26:10]
    Losing fat as your metabolism changes [29:44]
    When people fight for their limitations [34:30]
    It’s not just about a number on the scale [40:21]
    You just have to decide that you can [42:49]
    Focusing on what you can do, rather than how you look [45:13]
    Sometimes we need external motivation [50:41]

    Ep. 480: The Internet is Boring Now

    Ep. 480: The Internet is Boring Now

    Is it just us, or is the internet boring as fuck lately? And yet even though we’re bored to tears, we can’t stop cycling through the same apps over and over again. We’re addicted to it and yet we’re just so bored. Everyone posts the same content over and over, where the only point is to get attention and make people angry, rather than doing anything interesting. It could just be that we’re just pessimists, but it feels like the algorithm has rotted our brains. It might be time to start some social-media detoxes, and while we’re at it, maybe start reading again?

    How can you be sick of something you’re addicted to? [1:17]
    The never-ending app loops [3:51]
    The death of creativity [5:43]
    Creation for the sake our outrage and engagement [7:51]
    You have to find a way to make it work for you [9:22]
    Looking for new ways to scratch the itch [12:31]
    Let’s practice going without our phones [14:17]
    Internet burn-out [16:20]

    Ep. 479: We're Sick of Authenticity

    Ep. 479: We're Sick of Authenticity

    There’s so much chatter about “authenticity” and “just being yourself” online these days that it’s kinda starting to lose meaning. Of course you should be yourself online, but often people mistake being “authentic” with being vulnerable. Some people like to share everything about themselves with their followers, some people don’t! We’ve also seen a lot of people conflate being authentic with just being an asshole. At the end of the day, it’s important to stay true to who YOU are in every moment, and what YOU want to share, rather than what some rando on the internet tells you is “real” authenticity.

    What the hell does “authenticity” even mean? [0:55]
    Authenticity and vulnerability are not the same [2:15]
    Dramatics get more attention [4:47]
    “Just be yourself” is harder to do than you think [9:39]
    Ownership is sexy [12:04]
    Creating teaches you about yourself [16:05]
    Finding peace in who you are [18:32]
    You need people to feel safe with you [21:42]

    Ep. 478: When A Prominent Public Figure Tells A Lie

    Ep. 478: When A Prominent Public Figure Tells A Lie

    Maybe you’ve heard already, but prominent podcaster Andrew Huberman, was recently exposed for having relationships with 6 different women at once. And while there’s nothing technically “illegal” about what he’s done, it’s a really s****y move done by someone who claims to have high integrity, and it rubs us the wrong way. We’re not big believers in the concept that how you do one thing is how you do everything, but how are we supposed to respect a man that has shown he doesn’t really respect the women in his life? No one is perfect, but when you’re a public figure, the way you act has a big impact on how your work is perceived, and this is one mistake we can’t really look past.

    Is how you do one thing is how you do everything? [6:50]
    Not everyone is what they seem [11:00]
    A pattern of disrespect is telling [15:02]
    Bad behavior has consequences, no matter who you are [18:15]
    Only a sincere apology will do [21:17]
    If it hurts someone, it hurts everyone [26:13]
    A war between the sexes [29:25]

    Ep. 477: How Our Workouts Change As We Age

    Ep. 477: How Our Workouts Change As We Age

    We’re not at young as we once were, and as much as we hate to admit it, our bodies are changing. That means making peace with the fact that the way we once worked out no longer works for us, and figuring out new ways to stay fit. It’s hard af to let go of the ways things used to be, but staying the same forever can do more harm than good. Nowadays we prioritize managing our physical + emotional stress, putting on muscle, and letting the small things add up. Just because working out looks different now doesn’t mean what we’re doing is worse.

    Adjusting your workouts as you age [1:44]
    Keeping your stress levels in-check [6:54]
    Optimizing your workouts for your hormonal health [9:39]
    How our bodies react to the stress we put them under [14:51]
    Bone density and bone health [15:49]
    Small things add up [16:54]
    Doing something different is actually better [19:18]
    The importance of mobility and flexibility [21:48]

Listen to Natalie Jills episode about hydrogen water. That was life changing for me! Maybe that’s another piece to the puzzle for your “get better “ journey. Xoxo. Stacey 😍
