#53 with Dr Mike T Nelson: Metabolic Flexibility, Better Movement, and FasciaMeathead Hippie add
Mike T Nelson, CSCS, MSME, PhD is a metabolism and fitness expert specializing in improving body composition and performance in athletes of all types. He is a University instructor and owner of Extreme Human Performance, LLC.
Mike T. Nelson has studied the functions of the human body for a multitude of years and became specifically interested in how to properly condition it to burn fat, become stronger, more flexible, and healthier. In this episode of Meathead Hippie, Mike T. Nelson talks about how was initially intrigued in the human body when he learned the ins and outs of fascia by studying cadavers! From there, Mike speaks on how the body is capable of more than we can imagine. Metabolic flexibility is where Mike T. Nelson specializes and says that, “Metabolic flexibility is a spectrum that evaluates how well the body can use carbs and fat for energy, if needed.” Mike provides excellent examples of how to use the concepts of metabolic flexibility by fat burning and intermittent fasting to help decrease insulin levels, which in turn changes body composition!
