In this episode, I’m chatting with Ben Racke, a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, fitness/health & nutrition coach, and host of the “Ranges of Motion” podcast. Ben offers in-person training, online training program design, and online nutrition coaching to help people navigate their way through fitness and health to become the best versions of themselves in every aspect of their lives.
In this episode Ben and I discuss people calling each other out in health and fitness, how perfumes and personal care products affect hormones, and what happens when you wait for studies as evidence of something being harmful. We also discuss building awareness of our own bodies and how small habits can make a huge difference on your overall health. We talk about adjusting fitness and lifestyle habits for the overstressed, type A individual, the importance of rest days, and when to implement HIIT. Ben also talks about his favorite workout split, balanced nutrition, IIFYM, if calories matter, his morning routine, and more.
