In this week’s episode of “The Discover Strength Podcast” we continue our multi-part series featuring trainers from all the Discover Strength locations. In this series, which will air over the next few months, we talk about some of the most important things all of our new clients should know. These topics are also a great reminder for clients who’ve trained with Discover Strength for years, and serve as the foundation of the “Why” behind the “How” of what we do.
This week, we’re joined by Discover Strength Founder and CEO, Luke Carlson. Luke and I discuss a new and exciting field of research in the exercise science community, Myokines. These endocrine signaling hormones are released during all activity of muscular contraction. And while we’re just starting to scratch the surface on what they do, they could potentially be the key to the many benefits that come from resistance training.
This is also a wonderful episode to explain the larger benefits of exercise, besides just the aesthetics. Resistance training is a powerful tool for personal wellbeing, and Myokines may be the first step in the understanding of how powerful exercise can really be.
Let’s show everyone that you can work harder and smarter just 2x/week for 30 minutes and get the same or even better results with a “Discover Strength Style” approach to your resistance training routine.
Great content in such a short time frame. Do we know if strength training produces more or less Myokines than other forms of exercise?
Early research shows that they are both effective but I don’t think we know conclusively which is more effective.
