Now that you’ve gotten the keto thing down and you’re getting all of your nutrients in, what else do you need to do? In this installment of the Keto Hot Seat, I answer all your questions related to healthy movement beyond keto. Visit http://www.shawnmynar.com/ketoforwomen/ for the complete show notes of every podcast episode.   Topics Discussed in this Episode: Tips on how to do strength training without overstressing your body Intuitive exercise When to push on and work out versus when to rest and heal How to tell the difference between needing a break and mental resistance The best foods to eat before and after a workout, and when to eat them How you should work out when you’re perimenopausal Suggestions for working out for older women and those with a history of injuries Strength training on a set schedule versus strength training intuitively How workouts affect autoimmune disease Where to start when you have inflammation and fibromyalgia Working out early in the morning in a fasted state and whether that causes adrenal stress Key Takeaways: Fitness and healthy movement are different but equally important. Overtraining is a huge reason why people have adrenal burnout. The most stressful thing about strength training is not taking the time to let your muscles relax and recover. Mental resistance is when you’re talking yourself out of doing something that your intuition is telling you to do, and there is always a root cause to it. On the other hand, you know you need a break when your body and your intuition are telling you you need to take a break. There’s nothing about perimenopause and menopause that should keep you from trying to push yourself when working out. The stronger you get your back muscles and the stronger your get your core, the easier it will be for you to maintain good posture.   Action Steps: Strength train smartly. Listen to your body and adjust. Don’t be afraid of pushing yourself but also know when to take it easy. Rest between sets. Take time off in between your strength training sessions. Give your muscles enough time to recover. Practice intuitive exercise. Understand the power of movement, exercise, and fitness to your overall health.   Get into a good posture.   Work on building up strength in your back and in your core, while also gaining mobility and stretching out your shoulders and your chest. Be conscious about what your body is doing and how it is positioned.   IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS: Catch the Keto Workshop that I’m hosting live on Friday, June 28, 2019 at 1 PM Mountain Standard Time.
