38: Louise Green: Big Fit Girl

September 14, 2017
00:0000:00

Fit. Fat. Thin. Plus-size. Body Positive. Diet-Culture. Fat Activism. What IS all this? Why is "food" such a volatile topic? Meredith and the amazing Louise Green --- two "big fit girls" talk about fitness, food, weight, stigma, triathlon and more.

In her book Big Fit Girl, Louise Green describes how the fitness industry fails to meet the needs of plus-size women and thus prevents them from improving their health and fitness. By telling her own story of how she stopped dieting, got off the couch, and unleashed her inner athlete—as well as showcasing similar stories from other women—Green inspires other plus-size women to do the same.

Green also provides concrete advice, based on the latest research, about how to get started, how to establish a support team, how to choose an activity, what kind of clothing and gear work best for the plus-size athlete, how to set goals, and how to improve one’s relationship with food. And she stresses the importance of paying it forward—for it is only by seeing plus-size women in leadership roles that other plus-size women will be motivated to stop trying to lose weight and get fit instead.

1: Gerry Halphen: Heart Rate Training

April 21, 2017
00:0000:00

Heart rate and such. Have Heart! Meredith Atwood sits down with Gerry Halphen in her first solo podcast. Gerry Halphen is an IRONMAN athlete (IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship qualifier and competitor), coach, catalyst, life-changer and friend to talk about the burning (or should we say “beating”) question: “Why do we REALLY care about heart rate training?” 

Gerry was the man behind the infamous “Spark” that changed Meredith A’s life back in 2009.  A heart-warming episode with a good soul, it’s always a joy to tell old tales, think about new goals and keep things real with the Coach Formerly known as “Coach Monster.”

Show Highlights
In this episode, Gerry and Meredith A. discuss:

- what heart rate training really is and what's the point of it

- how does this impact new athletes

- how does going SLOWER actually make you FASTER

- what Kind of TIME FRAME does heart rate adaptation take 

- why we MUST incorporate the other end of the training zone (anaerobic)

- the best way(s) to determine your HR zones:

  • Inexpensive and non-testing way.
    Generic 220-age (Max HR), then percentage of that sets zones
    Example, a 33 year old female... would be 187, then: 
    Zone 1: 112-130 (60-70%)
    Zone 2:  131-149 (70-80%)
    Zone 3:  150-168 (80-90%)
    Zone 4:  169-177 (90-95%)
  • Field Testing / Resource:

  • Blood Lactate Testing
