How to Read Research Articles
Buckle up! It’s time to dive into the world of research, and mainly the world of how to read research! In Today’s episode we teach you how to navigate reading a scientific research article, why it's important to read more than the abstract, and even where to find actual scientific articles. We hope you enjoy!
Diet Culture Sucks
We hope you are ready for a bit of a roller coaster today. In this episode, we discuss our dislike of diet culture, how it affects us as athletes, combating diet culture in your life, and why we should focus our energy on getting strong and NOT getting small.
Performance Nutrition vs. Physique Nutrition
Low protein, high protein, low carb, high carb...what is the best thing for you?! Well, that depends. Today we are going to dive into the world of performance vs physique nutrition, where do we draw the line & how that line has been blurred in the body building & strength world
Mental toughness is something that is thrown around a lot in the strength and fitness world, but what does it actually mean and how can you implement it into your life. This week, we discuss just that and more!
So excited to find this podcast!
Thank you for cutting the bull and giving us science based advice.
So glad I found you!
After a few years away from lifting and eating healthy, I decided to re-engage. I joined a program that tracked macros, something I really enjoyed and knew worked well for me, and provided fitness training. Only behind the curtain, the coaches used shame to try and motivate you to continuously lose more weight. It was NOT healthy! This podcast and the 2 hosts - Dr Lander and Dr Morton - were TOTAL life savers! I learned more from their podcast episodes than I did in the 6 months I was in the other program. I have binged all the episodes and cannot thank them enough for the education, motivation, honesty, practical application, and open-minded approach to health
Mostly about food and
I keep coming back because Empowered by Iron had some great episodes about the science behind strength and effective workouts, but for the past year or so it’s almost entirely about intuitive eating and self motivation. Which is fine, just kinda gets old after a while. I feel like there’s not a lot to those things, and the information tends to just repeat itself. I’d love to hear more about strength and strength sports and rad female athletes who are killing it.
