We all know exercise and fitness are good... but what does working
out actually do? What do we want it to do?
- Fitness does NOT burn calories the
way we think it does. Our overall metabolic rate for any given
day is typically going to be about the same above a moderate level
- Fitness DOES strengthen your
body. Fitness strengthen muscles,
bones, and organ systems.
- Fitness DOES strengthen
efficiencies of toxin removal and nutrient deliver. Exercise
enhances health and well-being by making many of our systems more
efficient and responsive.
- Fitness DOES enhance "metabolic
flexibility" - the ability for the body to create energy
through different pathways, from glucose, fatty acids, ketones, and
proteins when necessary. This does not mean the more exercise, the
more you burn fat. It DOES mean that exercise trains the body’s
ability to burn fat.
- Fitness DOES prioritize and
distribute nutrients for body composition. The more
quality fitness you do, the more
your body distributes nutrients where they need to go to build
muscle, recover, etc. It doesn’t "burn fat," but it builds muscles,
which can increase in size compared to fat mass size.
The greatest benefits of exercise are the building of
capacities, functions, and capabilities, the building of lean
muscle mass, and the optimization of adaptive hormones, not to
the burning of calories.
In this episode, we discuss debunking exercise
for fat loss and what is an ideal time/energy level/type of workout
while also stressing the importance of recovery!
