Cooling Gloves, Cardio Considerations, and Protein in Aging

Greg shares a Road to the Stage update, and Eric takes a sharp turn onto the Road to Athens. That’s followed by Feats of Strength, and a Tech Support segment sharing MacroFactor reminders and updates related to the knowledge base, food database expansion, and the new public roadmap. Next, Greg provides an in-depth review of the literature related to cooling gloves and performance, and Eric gives some contextualized clarifications about low-calorie diets, age-related protein considerations, and positive aspects of cardio. Finally, Greg answers some listener questions, and Eric closes out the show by issuing a sobering warning about the grave consequences of Fat Bear Week.
