Ready To Power Your Continuing Education?

Learn about whether our level of exercise can be blamed on our genes, to how too little (or too much!) physical activity may affect our lifespan!

Contains the following Continuing Education modules:

Exercise and Longevity
Exercise Genetics
Fasting and Training Meal
Frequency and Metabolism
Paleolithic Diet Analysis

Exercise and Longevity

Could you be overdoing it? Could exercising too much cancel out all of its health benefits – or worse – shorten your lifespan? We dig in to the science, to clear up some common myths and misconceptions.

In this module you will learn…
  • Whether too little exercise is useless, but too much is dangerous 
  • What effect over-exercising can have on your lifespan
  • If your weekly hour at spinning class is “enough”
  • Whether you should actually exercise less

Exercise Genetics

Why do some people feel rewarded by exercise, while for others it feels like torture? Do we have less control over our activity level than we assume? Get ready for some serious science, as we answer these questions and more!

In this module you will learn…
  • How genetic your level of exercise is
  • Why some people are more active than others 
  • How brain reward influences our desire to exercise 
  • The other factors that can impact levels of fatigue

Fasting and Training
These days, fasting is a more and more popular dietary habit. But is it a good idea to exercise without eating? Could it even improve your training results? We investigate the scientific studies that tried answering these questions.

In this module you will learn…
  • Whether fasting and training is really a good idea 
  • If fasted exercise accelerates fat loss 
  • What risks are involved 
  • How a ketogenic diet could impact power output 
  • Whether weight training might cause glycogen depletion

Meal Frequency and Metabolism

People often say that eating frequent smaller meals “keeps your metabolic rate high” and “enhances fat loss”. But does your metabolism really go up when you split the same amount of food into regular, “mini-meals”? Let’s find out.

In this module you will learn…
  • Whether frequent meals can really raise our metabolism
  • The fundamentals of metabolism 
  • Which primary factors affect our overall caloric expenditure 
  • The science behind meal frequency and basal metabolic rate
  • How skipping meals may impact our metabolic rate 

Paleolithic Diet Analysis

The “modern” Paleo diet is based on eating the same foods as humans ate during the Paleolithic Era. Some believe it was meat-based, and others plant-based; so, which is it? And is the Paleo diet actually healthy? We dive into the scientific record to debunk some myths and misconceptions!

In this module you will learn…
  • What paleo humans really ate 
  • Whether there’s any science behind the “Paleo craze”
  • How we can tell what our Paleo ancestors really ate – and if we even can 
  • Whether Paleolithic foods still exist today
  • If there are any experiments of modern humans following a “true” Paleolithic diet 
  • Whether this Paleo diet is suitable for everyone – or not
