Walking Benefits and Pre-Sleep Protein

In today’s episode, Greg presents a deep dive into the multifaceted benefits of walking. Rather than focusing exclusively on correlations from observational studies, this Research Roundup covers several meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials. During the conversation, Greg and Eric discuss how walking might impact general health and wellness, in addition to performance, recovery, and body composition. After that, Eric answers a listener’s question about pre-bed protein consumption, and Greg shares some interesting biographical information about the host of the show.
