HIITCAST S2 E61 - Understanding the Pelvic Floor with Dr. Laura Meihofer
Have you ever seen someone pee a little during a CrossFit workout? I remember watching the CrossFit Games a few years back and seeing it happen live on TV during box jumps. Sometimes, urinary incontinence is an indicator of pelvic floor weakness. In others, it can manifest as low-back pain. In this special episode, Dr. Lankford and I speak with Dr. Laura Meihofer, an expert in assessing and treating pelvic floor dysfunction. Dr Meihofer also debunks a lot of the pelvic floor strengthening trends, such as suspended lifting with a yoni egg.

HIITCAST S2 E59 - Reassessing Calories
This episode digs deep into the definition, interpretation and all the various ways in which we use the word "Calories". Dr Lankford and Dr Bennion dissect Calories in vs Calories out for weight loss, and how there are multiple factors contributing to weight loss that are higher priorities than energy balance, and debate whether energy balance really should be the foundation that many fitness professionals claim that it is. We address the Calories stored in a pound of fat, and how that figure gets misinterpreted for building muscle and the Calories needed to gain healthy weight as well. We talk about these topics and so much more in this powerfully deep episode all about reassessing Calories!

HIITCAST Season 2 Ep: 57 - Pedals on your Bike
In this episode, Dr Lankford and I talk about common misunderstandings among fitness professionals. We start by addressing "lactic acid" and how it's used so regularly ... while not necessarily being the most accurate description. And then the conversation turns into fitness business stuff, and how fitness professionals often feel the influences of the fitness industry defining/limiting their talents and skills. Eli proposes an interesting and profound analogy that an exercise science degree is like a bike without pedals - that on its own it's nearly impossible to be productive. But that we must attach out own pedals to that bike to really make it take off. In what ways do you attach pedals to your bike? Let us know the coolest and most creative things you're doing personally, or that you've experienced among fitness professionals, to develop and push health and fitness into a better space!

HIITCAST 053 - What is Fitness? With Dr. Nathan Jenkins
Have you ever critically thought about what fitness means to you? ...Should that definition be different from person to person, or should exercise scientists and the fitness industry have a unified understanding? Dr. Jenkins, PhD exercise physiologist, wrote an article in the CrossFit Journal (read it here: https://journal.crossfit.com/article/science-jenkins .... for real, READ IT) citing how many exercise science organizations have differing understandings, criteria and definitions of the simple word: "Fitness". We discuss the CrossFit definition of fitness by Greg Glassman, and it's beautiful simplicity in its physics based math. And this leads me to a handful of lightbulb moments! And we spend a lot of time talking about some of the amazing research coming out of his lab :)
