Strength Training and Protein for Women: Interview with Certified Trainer and NPC Bodybuilder, Mindy Irish
Welcome to the SYNC Your Life podcast episode #21! On this podcast, we will be diving into all things women's hormones to help you learn how to live in alignment with your female physiology. Too many women are living with their check engine lights flashing. You know you feel "off" but no matter what you do, you can't seem to have the energy, or lose the weight, or feel your best. This podcast exists to shed light on the important topic of healthy hormones and cycle syncing, to help you gain maximum energy in your life. In today's episode, I'm interviewing Mindy Irish of Mindy Irish Fitness. Mindy wears many titles! She has 4 children ages 12-18 and really enjoys being Mom to them in this fun season of their lives. Mindy was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroid Autoimmune disease 20 years ago in her mid 20s. Mindy had 5 pregnancies in 6 years and was living sugar addicted and in a lifestyle of obesity 12+ years ago at the age of 35. She slowly reset her lifestyle to a now very holistic way of living, became a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and is a national-level competitive bodybuilder in the Bikini division of the NPC. Mindy has a teaching degree in Physical Education from Indiana University and presently works as an online fitness coach and in-person personal trainer at her private gym in her home at Mindy Irish Fitness. She coaches and trains women of all ages who are competitors, general fitness clients, and/or those who may not want to ever compete, but look like they do!
We dive into strength training and protein intake for women, along with plating your food, common misconceptions in female training and exercise, and the art of physique competition.
