PEP 41: Aerobic vs. Resistance Training and Q&A Part 3

There seems to a lot of confusion among fitness enthusiasts. If you search the internet for fitness guidance, you'll likely come across three different schools of thought:

1) Cardio is king. Aerobic training such as jogging holds the key to weight loss and overall health and longevity.

2) Resistance training (lifting weights) is the only form of exercise that you should be doing for optimal body composition, preventing osteoporosis, and increasing anabolic hormones.

3) A training program consisting of a combination of aerobic and resistance training is the best way to achieve optimal health and wellness.

In episode 41 of The Primal Example Podcast, Joe and guest co-host John O'Connell examine new research comparing aerobic training vs. resistance training and their effects on bone density, strength, body fat and overall health.

Joe and John also answers listener questions about:

  • How to navigate "cheat days"

  • What's the deal with protein consumption while following ketogenic, paleo and intermittent fasting style diets?

  • Does drinking milk cause a decrease in bone density?
