Maybe you’re trying to hold onto your gains during a pandemic, maybe you just want to be equipped for high-quality home workouts when it’s challenging to make it to the gym, or maybe you just want to save money and not pay for a monthly gym membership. Regardless of the situation, if you can’t make it to the gym, this article should have you covered.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had wide-ranging impacts, with some of those impacts relating to fitness. In today’s episode, Greg and Eric discuss the small, free, easy things you can do to support normal immune function, and how to construct some effective home-based workouts with little to no equipment. After that, they debut a “Good News” segment, which we all could use, followed by a Q&A segment that includes questions about protein intake, lifting with long limbs, eating to support injury prevention (or recovery), bench press range of motion, fat burners, and more. Finally, Greg shares a risotto recipe to play us out, and Eric adds a couple extra tips to take that risotto to the next level.
Greg and Eric’s plans to morph the show into a political podcast have met an untimely end, but the show must go on. In today’s episode, they discuss some totally unsubstantiated claims about the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, followed by some impressive Feats of Strength. After that, Eric shares a research review about how the timing of your meals may alter the metabolic response to feeding, then Greg shares a research roundup about energy expenditure during times of vigorous mental effort, antagonist stretching for strength and power, and using heart rate variability to gauge your recovery from lifting. Then, Greg and Eric answer a few listener questions, share a very tentative recommendation for the “On the Rise” segment, and share a very confident recommendation for the “On the Rise” segment. To close the episode, Greg discusses some of his favorite sources of fun, informative educational content that is not fitness related, and Eric one-ups him by sharing the only source of information a person would ever need.
