Episode Info: Movement and exercise are important when considering a lifestyle approach to chronic disease and health optimization. When we think of exercise as medicine, most people don’t realize the amount of research available to support the physiologic changes and benefits.  Dr. Andy Galpin is a professor and researcher in muscle physiology and bioenergetics at California State University, Fullerton. By studying muscular and cellular physiology in both elite athletes and nonathletic patients, he sees what healthy and optimal looks like and works to translate this into actionable steps for all patients.   Using his fun, unique approach to teaching, Dr. Galpin outlines the data on long-term health measures and markers of longevity. He also discusses his book Unplugged, which addresses the benefits and shortcomings of wearable devices. “We should not be using wearable technologies to outsource physiology, but to insource it – to learn more about yourself.” - Dr. Andy GalpinToday on The Lab Report: 2:50 Meet Dr. Andy Galpin and learn about the field of bioenergetics 6:30 Why did he create his 5, 25, 55 Minute Phys YouTube Videos 8:45 How his research not only applies to sports performance but also nonathletes 15:35 Predictors of longevity and actionable preventative strategies 22:20 Aerobic vs. anaerobic activity and movement diversity 24:15 Slow-twitch, fast-twitch, and hybrid muscle fibers 25:35 Unplugged – wearable devices pro and con 29:10 HRV training and using technology appropriately 32:00 Reconnecting with nature 36:00 The Fireball Additional Resources: Unplugged: Evolve from Technology to Upgrade Your Fitness Performance & Consciousness XPT - Going Back to Basics in Your Training 5 Min Phys - Pros/Cons Fitness Technology        25 Min Phys - Carbs vs Fats 5 Min Phys - Fast vs Slow-Twitch Subscribe, Rate, & Review The Lab Report Thanks for tuning in to this week’s episode of The Lab Report, presented by Genova Diagnostics, with your hosts Michael Chapman and Patti Devers.
