We had the amazing opportunity to catch up with the one and only
Dr. Mike T. Nelson at the Arnold this year! Dr. Nelson was
one of our highest downloaded episodes last year when we talked
about metabolic flexibility during our nutrition deep dive.
This time we brought him back to dive into another area of passion
for Mike, the autonomic nervous system.
did he get into studying HRV, metabolic flexibility and the
autonomic nervous system? [3:15]
is an example of someone who is starting to lose their heart rate
are some of the implications, short term, as far as performance and
are some of the most obvious implications of improved HRV?
he have some progressive strategies that he implements to train
people to be able to push their sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous
system higher? [20:46]
his studies, what did he learn about the autonomic nervous system
from his subjects? [26:16]
does HRV influence someone’s training? What training they should be
to balance lifestyle stressors with training. [37:06]
your perception is EVERYTHING on how things impact you.
he change nutritional interventions based on their HRV levels?
someone has high sympathetic stress and low HRV, can we deduce that
cortisol will always be high? [53:50]
he have any supplemental interventions to manage cortisol and
fitness is a culture of extremes. [1:02:55]
has he seen fasting do to HRV? [1:09:42]
he think that HRV is correlated with body composition?
much are estrogen and testosterone playing into HRV?
else SHOULD the listener know about the autonomic nervous system?
he done any digging into the correlation of capnography and the
autonomic nervous system? [1:21:42]
