Audio Question from Joe:
What are your thoughts on alcohol during the training/racing season?
And Brenden asks:
I love beer, yet clearly understand how bad it is for my athletic performance and sleep cycles. I try to only drink on the weekends, yet sometimes find myself drinking one or two during the week. What is a safe number per day? Zero? LOL. I guess my question is, will I lose workout and fitness gain by drinking 12oz everyday? You get the picture. What type of rules do you have for yourself?
Audio Question from ???:
Wants some suggestions of quick and healthy foods to consume after a 5k running race to stop him from feeling nauseous and faint.
Audio Question from Andrea:
Wants advice on fueling for a “pump and run” event.
Audio Question from Chuck:
Wants to know more about MCT Oil.
Audio Question from Jean Luc:
Is there an easy formula to translate training “Short and Fast” vs. “Long and Slow”.
Audio Question from John:
Looking for some advice and exercises to do while healing from Patellofemoral Syndrome.
Audio Question from Tim:
What do you think of Seitan as a protein source for vegans?
Audio Question from Tom:
Vegan runner who eats well and takes CoQ10, Hawthorn (ect…) and still has high blood pressure. What else can he do?
~ In my response to Tom, I mention heart rate variability testing using the emWave.
Audio Question from Clay:
Wants some help with his exercise induced asthma (beyond his inhaler).
This is a totally serious question, I saw this mentioned in a discussion about over training. Is there any basis behind the theory of nocturnal penile tumescence being an indicator or not of testosterone level, and possible being over trained?
How effective are Curves Women's gyms from both a weight loss and fitness point of view? My wife's main goal is weight loss at the moment so she wants to know if she'd be better off hitting a gym with a pool, treadmill, bike, classes, etc and losing her Curves membership.
