Jennifer Schwartz | The Scientific Purpose of Muscle, Fat, and Exercise

In this episode, Nikki chats with Muscle Activation Techniques™ Rx specialist and strength coach Jennifer Simone Schwartz about the scientific purpose behind why we have muscle and fat, as well as the physiological effects of exercise on our system.

They discuss:

  • The metabolic properties of muscle and fat
  • What the research says about the effects of strength training on hormone regulation and body composition
  • The “Goldilocks Principle” and why it’s important that we get the right “dosage” of exercise to stimulate these hormones without creating excessive inflammation
  • Why taking an individual approach to exercise that goes beyond a generic program or “pop” fitness will yield better results
