KETOGENIC DIET: WHAT IT IS AND HOW IT WORKS

BECOME LEANER, SMARTER & FASTER BY EATING A STUPID AMOUNT OF FAT

This is the episode you've been waiting for...
Over the last few weeks, Nat & Dhani have been making references to a "Diet" that is based on low carb, no refined sugars and really really high-quality sources of fat & protein.   On Episode #5 of UPLOADED, we go in-depth on the ketogenic diet and discuss who should do it and why.

In the episode we'll cover...

  • How your body makes energy out of stored fat, and why it the best source of fuel
  • How can ketosis help you think clearer and be less hungry
  • The best kinds of fat and how can actually lose bodyfat by EATING MORE FAT
  • How ketosis can help you become a better athlete
  • How to start your own ketogenic experiment

MASTER THE WARM UP AND COOL DOWN

KEEPING SAFE AND OPTIMAL WITH COACH ERIN

With the open just a few days away, make sure you're warming up and cooling down properly to ensure you'll be in your best health when game day arrives.  

A proper warm up prepares you physiologically and psychologically for action and reduces the chance of injury occurring. Give yourself enough time to warm up all joints and muscles. Don't forget the small parts, we function best as a whole unit. It's all connected. Time is tight sometimes in the classes so come in a few minutes early to move around.  A good warm up should take about 15 minutes. This should be part of your daily routine even if it's a rest day.
