Strength Training, Fueling & HIIT for Perimenopause - Mindful Strength Podcast

Let’s talk about perimenopause.

In this episode, Kathryn and Gina talk about perimenopause and why strength training and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) are helpful in this life phase. Gina also shares quite a bit about pre-exercise fuelling and why starting exercise with extra energy is incredibly powerful.

In this podcast, you will learn more about why consuming both protein and carbs pre-training is useful, how muscle and metabolism are linked, what true HIIT is, and the importance of progressing gradually to higher intensity.
