18 Things I Learned at BioSig ~ Day 4
At the end of the 4th day, I had 45 pages of notes. Here are some short tips and succinct tidbits I found interesting from Day 4.
1 – Cortisol and Testosterone levels will mimic each other during a strength training workout. Meaning both will go up.
2 – If Cortisol stays higher longer, your levels of Testosterone will decrease.
3 – Therefore, Cortisol is your friend before and during your workout, but not afterwards.
4 – Having Caffeine before a workout will increase Cortisol levels.
5 – Therefore, if you’re going to have Coffee, have it in the morning (the other time where Cortisol is your friend) or before a workout.
6 – Negate #5 if you workout after 4 pm.
7 – The only two items that have receptor sites in all human tissues is thyroid hormones and Vitamin D3.
8 – Skipping meals increases your Cortisol levels.
9 – 80% of your recovery from a workout occurs within the first 10 minutes.
10 – Therefore, the faster you can take a sip of your post-workout drink, the better.
11 – If you do strength training followed by interval training you will burn more bodyfat. The same is not true if done the other way around.
12 – The genes responsible for immune function are dependent on Selenium function.
13 – Sardines are one of the best canned food items you can eat.
14 – Oatmeal, although technically gluten free, will get mixed up with wheat and therefore gets “contaminated” with gluten.
15 – Males should wake up with an erection, every morning.
16 – Men should never take these 3 supplements, unless advised directly by a competent doctor: Copper, Iron and Calcium.
17 – I have to start taking pictures of all my clients.
18 – You are your schedule.
