The scent of fresh baked pies, your grandma’s rolls, and your grouchy uncle’s bengay-laden shoulder float by you and subtly remind you that in a couple months, you’ll probably be 5 pounds heavier.

This podcast is dedicated to educating you on the 3 energy systems in the body: the ATP-PC system, the Glycolytic system, and the Oxidative system, and most importantly, helping you understand them.
Learning your body, becoming fascinated with its intricate workings, and applying it to your own training is when we begin to bridge the gap from “exercise is a dreaded chore, or punishment” to “training for purpose, and enjoyment.”
-The ATP-PC system can be remembered as the “Stored” or “Gain” system
-The Glycolytic system is also referred to as the anaerobic system, and can be remembered as the “Unsustainable” or “Pain” system
-The Oxidative system is also referred to as the aerobic system, and can be remembered as the “Sustain” or “Sustainable” system
Saying you want to be a healthier person, but becoming negatively-obsessive with hyper-restriction and punishing exercise is missing the forest for the trees. Training: imperative for health, fitness, quality of life, longevity, mood, esteem, and your ability to manipulate your body comfortably throughout your days.
You’ve spent all this time fantasizing about your gym; the weights, the accountability, your peers, the selfie lighting, the atmosphere. The time is coming, but should you just get back into it as usual?
