Why Strength Training Is The Most Important Thing You Need To Be Doing - The Diet Diaries Podcast

This episode is kind of us just having a conversation with each other and then sharing it with all of you to listen, so expect a lot of laughing and fun tangents. Within that, we have an amazing conversation around why strength training for women is nonnegotiable, how to get started if you feel intimidated and overwhelmed, and what lifting heavy actually means (it’s not what you think).

Gina is also an expert in fitness for women going through the various stages of menopause, and she shares some really valuable tips to help you feel better in your body during this emotionally and physically taxing time.

One of the most important topics we talk through is how individualized our needs are when it comes to exercise and strength training because of your history, lifestyle, and preferences.

And, of course, you can’t talk about strength training without talking about protein. We share some really simple guidelines to give you a starting point to get more protein into your diet and what a reasonable protein goal is for weight loss.
