This episode is about morning routines, training to fatigue, and defining “fueled.” They may seem like unrelated topics yet they are from our pool of Flipping 50 Insiders questions. And you may have them too!
In this episode I answer 3 community questions so that you too can hear the answers. Share your question too by joining our Flipping50 Insiders group or by leaving a question or comment below the show notes.
Mary asks about morning routines:
01:48 know you say ideally to wake, wait an hour or so before working out, then wait another hour before fueling with protein. That works well if I work from home, but that’s not usually the case. Do you have a suggested schedule for those of us who need to …
Susi asks about training to fatigue:
09:04 What does training to fatigue mean? I am very strong-willed and like to train hard (over-motivated). But I can still somehow do some repetitions, with good technique. But often I don’t realize it was too much until after the workout, when I feel tired. When is enough enough?
Kathy asks about the definition of “fueled”:
13:20 If you “feed” yourself prior to a workout, what does that really mean? I could drink 10 grams of protein or eat a spoonful of almond butter or ½ a banana. Is it any of those things? What is ideal? What is best when you want to train (Weights or HIIT) in the morning and have your high protein smoothie 60-90 minutes post workout? I feel I am at a plateau and wondering if I am doing things incorrectly. Of course I have my lemon water and then caffeine prior to my workout. Is there a period of time after having caffeine I need to wait before workout out?
Thank you to Mary, Susi and Kathy for the question about morning routines, training to fatigue, and “fueled” – I’m more than certain other women are grateful you asked!
