Can Hyperventilating Make You Stronger? What Science Says
You’ve probably heard a lot of strange ideas about how to get stronger and build muscle. You know, things like drinking a gallon of milk a day, doing ten sets of ten reps of every exercise, sipping flavored water BCAAs between meals, and so forth. And if you’ve put any of these ideas into practice, you’ve also learned they’re more or less all humbug. If you’re following a well-designed strength training program, eating enough protein and slightly more calories than you burn every day, and sleeping at least 8 hours per night, there’s little else you can do to further goose muscle growth or strength gains. That said, it’s you’re doing all of those things, it’s worth exploring what that “little else” might entail. For example, although blood-flow restriction sounds like something from the pages of Fifty Shades of Gray, it’s actually a scientifically validated method for boosting muscle growth and strength. Recently, researchers have uncovered another potential way to increase strength (and thus muscle growth): hyperventilation training. Hyperventilation? Isn’t that what happens when you have a panic attack? Well, yes, it can occur in response to extreme anxiety, but specifically, hyperventilation refers to a situation where rapid, deep breathing causes an imbalance in the ratio of carbon dioxide (CO2) to oxygen (O2) in your blood. When you “overbreathe” (as some people refer to hyperventilation), you exhale CO2 much faster than you inhale O2. This causes the level of CO2 in your blood to plummet, which can lead to a variety of unpleasant side effects like lightheadedness, dizziness, shortness of breath, and intense tingling in your fingers and face, with the effects becoming more intense the longer you hyperventilate . . . . . . which sounds like the last thing you’d want to experience while lifting heavy weights. According to a new study conducted by scientists at Juntendo University, though, hyperventilating briefly—enough to slightly decrease your blood levels of CO2, but not so much that you experience negative effects—may temporarily make you stronger. Keep listening to learn why and how hyperventilating can boost your strength. 5:34 - What is one of the primarily physiological factors that limits our performance in workouts? 14:14 - How do you hyperventilate?

DeMarcus Ware - From Professional Football to Fitness Professional
In order to play at the highest level of their respective sports, professional athletes train to be in peak physical condition all year round, there is NO off-season, but what happens when the career is over and they are no longer being paid to exercise? How does an athlete who has spent years honing his or her physical ability make the transition to life after sports? Once an athlete ends the career on the field or court, often he or she will transition a new one as a coach in order to share knowledge with the next generation of players. However, a recent trend is that athletes are not returning to their sport to become coaches but are instead becoming personal trainers where they can share their knowledge of fitness with clients. Since a professional athlete has spent years learning how to achieve optimal physical performance, it is a natural transition to becoming a fitness professional where he or she can guide clients on how to optimize performance in their lives. DeMarcus Ware was a first round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys who went on to help win Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos; now that he has stepped off of the playing field, he has opened 3Volt Fitness, a studio in Trophy Club, Texas where he can share his knowledge and passion with his customers. On this episode of All About Fitness, DeMarcus shares his story of how he ended up in the NFL, provides insights on the amount of off-field work that goes into being a professional athlete and talks about his passion for helping others to achieve their best life. This is a fascinating and motivational discussion with a great athlete and even better human. If you want to see how DeMarcus is staying in peak physical condition after his playing days, or to be able to do the same workouts as the Cowboys all-time sack leader, follow him on Instagram: @DeMarcusWare If you happen to be near Trophy Club, Texas - book a workout with 3 Volt Fitness - maybe you'll have a chance to sweat with DeMarcus: https://3voltfit.com/ Join Pete for 30 min.

#39 Fatal Conveniences™: Microwaves: Zapping Away Nutrients
I haven’t used a microwave in over 35 years. So I was shocked to hear that a friend was still using one frequently. You guys, microwaves are bad news. Sure, they heat up your leftovers in seconds, but what else are they doing to your food? 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. Before you put those leftovers in the microwave, read this first. Microwaves first hit the scene in the 1940s, when convenient food was starting to become all the rage. Invented by Percy Spencer, these contraptions were marketed as a way to prepare food quickly. By the late 1970s, almost every American household had one. We all grew up with one, maybe you still even use one. But I’m telling you now, throw out your microwave! Don’t even donate it, I don’t want anyone cooking their food this way. Just take a sledgehammer to the damn thing. Why am I so convinced microwaves are bad news? Because they change food at a molecular level. The way they work is by agitating the water molecules in food. The water molecules are ripped and torn apart, completely changing the structure of the food you’re heating. This depletes nutrients and leaves you with a nuked mess of empty calories. If that isn’t enough to convince you to toss your microwave, check out the studies I’ve linked below. Please guys, just heat your food on the stove. It’s not that hard. I’ve been doing it that way my entire adult life. A few extra minutes is worth it to make sure you’re getting all the vitamins and nutrients your food has to offer. Information In This Segment: The invention and evolution of the modern microwave How microwaves work The study that shows broccoli losing 97% of its antioxidants after being microwaved Why you should lightly steam veggies instead Why you should NEVER microwave breastmilk The negative health effects of microwaved food Links & Resources: Microwave Cooking and Nutrition Microwave Ovens and Radiation Is There Any Evidence that Microwaving Food Alters its Composition?
