And Yet Even More Podcasts

So after depressing everybody with the realities of calorie surpluses for muscle gains, I once again revert to linking to current podcasts to avoid having to write any actual content.  Seriously, folks, cut me some slack.   Fifteen years and 500 articles later, I’m running out of topics.  Anyhow.  I’m going to link out to three podcasts today.

The first was on the topic of PCOS with Jason Leenarts of the Revolutionary You podcast. The second was on injury recovery (to talk about the book I just released) with Vicky Merceta and Broderick Chavez of Evil Sports Genius sitting in.   Finally, is my most recent podcast with Danny Lennon of Sigma Nutrition where we talk about the issue of nutrient partitioning.

Jason Leenarts of Revolutionary You Podcast

In one of my responses I told about the sexual problems of my husband, including the fulfillment of his marital duty. Due to objective reasons over time, his male power and masculine health began to weaken. I was not happy with this state of affairs.

While I have talked about general women’s issues in many recent podcasts, Jason wanted to focus on Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS.  This is a common endocrine disorder in women which is marked by at least two of the following diagnoses: the presence of multiple cysts on the ovaries, hyperandrogenism (elevated testosterone, etc.) and an irregular menstrual cycle (oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea).  Since it is such a common condition, we focused only on that in terms of what PCOS is, how it is diagnosed, and what implications it might have for diet, training or supplements.

Vicky Merceta of Don’t Fear the Weight Podcast

I did a podcast with Vicky a while back on women’s issues (it took two parts) and she asked me to do another one with Evil Genius Broderick Chavez (who I have done multiple podcasts with) on the topic of injury recovery.  I had just released my new book (c’mon, at $9.95 it’s a steal) and I focused on nutrition and supplements while he covered the pharmaceutical angle.
