Dr. Scott Trappe - The Benefits of Lifelong Exercise
Play episode · 33 min

Regular exercise can slow down the effects of aging on your body! Thanks to some fascinating research, we now have a much better understanding on how a lifetime of exercise can help you overcome the effects of aging.

Founded in 1965, the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University in Indiana is one of the oldest exercise science labs in North America and for years has been on the cutting edge of research to identify the most effective methods for improving human performance.

In the fall of 2018, the Ball State Lab, led by Dr. Scott Trappe, published a study titled, "Cardiovascular and skeletal muscle health with lifelong exercise" which measured the benefits of lifelong participation in exercise by studying a population of 70 year-olds who have participated in exercise for a large majority of their adult lives. In addition, the study compared the physiology of the 70 year-olds to 20-somethings to see how the physiology of the older adults - effected by years of regular exercise - compared to the younger adults and the results were AMAZING!

On this episode of All About Fitness, Dr. Trappe, the director of the Ball State Human Performance Laboratory and the lead author of the study, joins me to discuss the research. Dr. Trappe provides important insights on the findings and shares his tips for how you can receive the long-term benefits of regular exercise. If you needed any additional motivation to get sweaty, this episode will have you reaching for your workout gear and heading for your favorite fitness facility!

#31 Fatal Conveniences™: Shoes: Free The Feet
Did you know that each foot contains 26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments? So, this insanely complex anatomical structure accounts for almost 25% of the bones and joints in your entire body. Not to mention the 200,000 nerve endings on the sole of each foot alone! So why do we insist on condemning these incredible sensory powerhouses to a life of padding and cushioning? Guys, it's time we talked about shoes. Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™ This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Strutting Your Stuff Shoeless Is The Way To Go! Once again, it turns out that even after thousands of years of evolution, Mother Nature still makes the best footwear. But we seem to have forgotten that. When we wear shoes consistently, what we're doing is reversing this marvel of engineering. Sadly, our love of fashionable footwear has drastically desensitized our feet and changed the way we walk. Therefore, over time, they have even altered the human gait. For the last 15 years or so, I've spent about 90% of my time totally shoe-less. Now, bear with me; I haven't gone completely bananas just yet. But, by ditching the kicks, you'll be rewarded with some pretty amazing health benefits. In this Fatal Conveniences™, I break down the importance of letting your feet breathe. I also look at our feet and how getting a bit more grounded can work its magic across your whole body. I also explore why shoes change the way we walk and the things you can do to retrain your feet to be free. Other topics in this segment: * Why we're getting too much cushion for comfort * Why we should build up our foot's sensitivity to the earth * The research and studies that bring more light to foot health * Weakness, stiffness, and flat feet- Oh my! * How you can reconnect with your feet (and nature) * The best brands for keeping your feet happy * Why bad foot care affects you from head to toe Other Great Resources To Dive Into: * TIME Magazine: The Healthiest Shoes To Wear- According To Science * Study: Foot strength and stiffness – Shoed Vs.

The Best Way to Train All 6 Major Muscle Groups
Deciding which muscle groups to train together can be confusing. Most people say chest and triceps should be trained together, since they’re both involved in bench and overhead pressing. Others say you should train biceps with chest because your arms will still be fresh after benching, so you might as well train them together. Arnold was known for training his chest and back together, and if that was good enough for The Oak, then it should probably work for you, no? Other people still say that you shouldn’t program your workouts around individual muscle groups at all, but should simply focus on doing a lot of heavy squatting, deadlifting, and bench pressing or full-body training. So, how are you supposed to put all of this into an effective training plan that you enjoy? Well, I have good news for you: There is no “best” way to combine muscle groups together in your training. So long as you understand a few basic principles, there are many ways to combine them into workouts that not only work, but that you enjoy and can stick to. Body-part “bro” splits, push pull legs, and upper/lower routines can all work equally well, and which one you use really depends on how many times per week you want to train, how many years you’ve been training, and what muscle groups you want to work on most. And we’re going to break it all down in this podcast. By the end, you’re going to know which muscle groups to train together and why, the best exercises for each, and how to create a workout routine that’s guaranteed to deliver results. Let’s begin. 7:24 - What is a major muscle group? 8:06 - Chest training 10:39 - Back training 18:20 - Arms training 30:16 - Shoulders training 35:40 - Legs training 50:47 - Core training --- Mentioned on The Show: Shop Legion Supplements Here: _https://legionathletics.com/shop/ _--- Want free workout and meal plans?

TMHS 437: Buying Science, Healthwashing Labels, & Sparking Real Change - With Guest Vani Hari
If you knew an ingredient in your food could make you sick, would you still eat it? Probably not. Yet from orange juice to peanut butter cups, the synthetic ingredients lurking in everyday pantry staples could be doing you more harm than good. And while industrial food producers would love you to think otherwise, poor nutrition is a leading cause of preventable chronic diseases. As the saying goes, you really are what you eat. Our guest on this episode, New York Times bestselling author and food activist Vani Hari, explains “health washing” and shares how innocuous terms like “natural flavoring” can mask toxic ingredients in your favorite foods—and what you can do about it. Vani is no stranger to confronting the food industry, and her investigative work has led to significant changes from major brands like Chick-fil-A, Chipotle, Subway, and many others. Armed with what she’s learned in her own personal journey and thousands of hours of research, Vani explains how to empower yourself and your loved ones to make better food choices. While this year has been a rollercoaster, taking charge of what you put into your body—especially during a pandemic—is one small act you can do to regain control and fortify your health. If you’re ready to take a critical look at the food in your kitchen, listen and learn! In this episode you’ll discover: * What century-old food helps fight viruses and reduces symptoms of asthma and allergies. * Why Vani and Shawn value their daily workouts—now more than ever. * Why you need to take agency for your own health instead of depending on others. * How $4 trillion is spent on healthcare every year, yet we’re sicker than ever. * Why “health washing” is a problem. * How food companies use unnatural flavors to create addictive products. * How to get your kids to love vegetables. * Why orange juice companies add synthetic vitamins and ingredients. * What we can do right now to effect change at the community, corporate, and government levels. * How Vani got her brother to change his lifestyle and turn his health around. * The three simple questions you should ask yourself before every meal. * Why it’s important to reach out to family members and neighbors right now.

FHP S2: E39 - The Blame Game
Whether we succeed or we fail, ultimately? Well ultimately we are to blame. However, it isn’t easy to accept that we are at fault. It’s way easier to blame outside factors… We didn’t have enough time. The plan was flawed. Work or life obligations got in the way. But guess what? It’s still your fault no matter how “real” or valid the excuses are. And that should actually be a positive thing if we truly want to make a change. Because it then means that ultimately YOU are in CONTROL. When we blame outside forces, we give them the power. We give them power, because we don’t want to be at fault. It sucks admitting you failed. It’s hard to realize we sucked at something. Or didn’t stick to the plan. It’s suck to admit we have a weakness. But when you admit it’s your own flaw? You also gain control of your future. You then have the power to CHANGE your situation. That control, and the acceptance of your failures, is what ultimately leads to your success. Those that succeed honestly often don’t really have a better plan. They didn’t have perfect timing. Shit got in the way and they had countless setbacks. But they owned their failures. Blamed themselves and not things outside of their control. And they put in the work to make the changes. Stop blaming everything but yourself. Because ultimately YOU are in control. Ultimately only you can choose how to react to a situation. Only you can choose to move forward.

The Best Workout After a Cheat Day (2:00 Drill #20)
We're jumping back into your questions this week, covering things like training for the CrossFit Games as a teen, how to warm-up for an early-morning workout, and the advice I hear all the time that I think is bad. * Find us on Social: Ben | Patrick Jump to: 01:50 - I feel like I've lost my mental game. I used to be able to push through anything but lately I've been super fragile and defensive. What are some ways I can fix my mental and we can train together without fear of falling out? 05:20 - What is the most valuable lesson you have learned from fitness? How do you apply that lessons to your day to day life? 08:30 - What is meant by “smashing the body?” Should we avoid those workouts that leave you lying on the floor, questioning why did I do this? I personally love those I feel I learn and grow, but trying to strike a good balance. 13:15 - What is the best type of exercise the day after a cheat meal? Does one exercise or type of workout prove better than the other when it comes to working out the day after eating poorly ? 15:30 - How important is cooling down after a CrossFit workout? 17:40 - I’m 15 years old and this is the 3rd year I’ve been doing CrossFit. My goal is to go at the CrossFit Games. My gym organizes only 2 CrossFit teens classes per week and I feel frustrated because I want to improve my skills at CrossFit and I think that only 2 classes per week aren’t enough. So I started running 3 times per week, doing yoga 2 or 3 times per week and doing squat therapy everyday. I’m also using every source such as podcasts or books to learn even more about CrossFit and I’m really paying attention on my recovery, sleep and nutrition. Am I’m doing right? Is that something else that I can do to improve my CrossFit performance? 20:30 - If I want to get my morning workout in, what’s a good way to quickly get my body moving well right after waking up? I often feel stiff and like I’m just not neurologically ready for explosive movement, even after a pre-workout drink. I usually have less than an hour before I have to get to work and would like to make the most of it on those early mornings. 22:45 - I am a 17 year old CrossFit athlete that loves the sport. Obviously there are already some phenoms in this sport and I will continue to put in the work regardless but will the kids at the top now continue to be the dominating in, say, 10 years? 27:50 - You’ve mention that elite athletes are not necessarily on the same gently sloping trajectory at a distant horizon of health that other CrossFitters are on. I was hoping you could talk more about the risks of the way elites train that might not end them up at the same distant horizon. 32:00 - I have a small group class of 6-8 athletes, pretty consistently the same people. Recently there has been a change and suddenly a couple of people in the group have become quite competitive around scores, weights used, etc, and are accusing others of miscounting or are lowering their own standards around range of motion to score higher. It’s bothering a few of my more scaled members who are trying to keep their workouts to themselves. How would you advise addressing this? 37:45 - I’m a member and a coach at a gym who’s owner is absent. I mean both mentally and physically absent. Very little care in programming, very bad communication, inconsistent leadership, etc. It might seem easy to say, “Well just leave,” but I feel like this is complicated. I do not want to enable this behavior, but I’ve been at this gym for five and a half years. I feel these members need people that care about them and put in effort because it is not coming from the top. Aside from simply leaving, is there any advice for coaches in a situation where their gym owner’s effort is lacking? If this behavior was being exhibited by my boss in my professional career, I would leave. But for some reason I have a hard time cutting ties in this scenario. 40:40 - We are transitioning to 2 coaches per class and are discussing how to best split the class between the 2 coaches. How do you best split the class between 2 coaches? Do you have a senior and junior coach? Is 1 person taking the lead? Do you split the class just in half? 42:33 - To steal from Tim Ferriss, "what's the advise you hear all the time, however is garbage or not recommend. Best bad advice."About the Show Chasing Excellence is dedicated to dissecting what it means to live a life of excellence, inside the gym & out.
