I can't believe I have put out 100 episodes. I truly hope that you have enjoyed listening as much as I enjoy creating them. Hopefully over these 100 shows you have found a few helpful tips to help you train for your next obstacle course race. As always I have a great one lined up for you today.
It has been a whirlwind week spending spring break in Hawaii and then hopping on a flight to Houston to watch UCONN with the Men's National Championship. It was a great time but I'm definitely feeling it this week trying to catch up.
In my research review this week I share an study comparing to training protocols and measuring their effectiveness for muscle size, strength, power, and body composition. The two strategies used were block periodization and mixed session periodization. Which one came out on top? You will have to listen in to see and how you may want to adjust your training plan.
In the Inside Mike's Mind segment I share my 3 step process to improving mobility. If you are like me you have to work hard to get better mobility. If you want to see improvements that last, just follow these 3 simple steps.
In this episode I interviewed Former Harvard professor and world-renowned clinical researcher Dr. Robert Wolfe. He is also the Co-founder and lead scientist at Amino Co. which was founded by world leaders in amino acid clinical research for the purpose of conducting cutting-edge medical research on amino-acid based products. Amino Co’s research, first funded by NASA, was developed by Dr. Robert R Wolfe and Dr. Wolfe's studies have been conducted with support from competitive research grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Space Biomedical Institute, US Department of Defense, The US Department of Agriculture, as well as the US Olympic Committee, and the International Olympic Committee.
We had an incredible chat discussing the role of essential amino acids and research he has conducted in a variety of populations. We covered older individuals that have issues consuming enough protein and preventing muscle loss, research on army ranger training and dealing in an incredibly stressful and undernourished situation, as well as muscle recover and performance. I know you will get a ton out of this interview and I was grateful to have Dr. Wolfe share his expertise with me.
