044 – Fat loss, common training mistakes most women make in the gym, and postpartum recovery done right!
One of the most informative and educational episodes to date! Rachel and David cover everything from the best way to lift weights if fat loss and getting toned is your goal, the biggest and most common mistakes women make in the gym and how to avoid them, how to eat and train postpartum, and the error of a desperation mindset! Rachel explains the importance of controlled lifting and tempo in eliciting changes in physique, the problem with doing so-called cardio weights(lots of reps, circuit type training with no logic behind the movements) that leave you exhausted and depleted versus following a proper periodized training program. She goes into what “circus training” is, movements that, while looking cool, don’t actually have any real effect on your body. The two explain the importance of keeping things simple in programming, considerations in making a plan for both the beginner and advanced trainee and the place of high intensity exercise in an intelligent and effective workout plan. Rachel explains why seeing a women’s health physio and specialist trainer is a MUST after giving birth(even if you’ve had a C-section or an “easy” pregnancy), how to start training the right way(it’s not running!), the importance of nourishing yourself with the proper food postpartum(you’ll find out how to eat and why), and how to handle that feeling of “oh wow, I don’t even recognize myself”, when you look in the mirror. The two touch on the key role mindset plays, why you cannot come from a place of desperation but one of nourishing self love when training postpartum, and the important shift needed in order for you to get excited about your goals when you do finally make it back to the gym! Episode 44 is an utter lifesaver and will help you dramatically course correct in your training, your health and your sanity! A scorcher of an episode!
