For our third episode, we talk about fitness. We weigh the pros and cons of skinny over strong, we compare "mommy body" to "dad bod", and we discuss some of our own workouts and fitness goals. Huge thanks to podcast sponsor LUNA Protein bars.
ThE MAKING OF THIS episode, at a glance:
Editing a podcast is hard when you have two talkers as co-hosts
- Why Meredith Vieira gave us a second honeymoon (video!)
- Indiana is on My Fitness Pal under @indianaadams
- Chris recommends: Starting Strength
- Indiana recommends: New Rules of Lifting For Women
- Why Indiana kept gaining weight, despite doing Starting Strength.
- You, too, can own a singlet like Chris.
- Dad Bods are all the rage (1, 2).
- Chris LOL'ed at this Bro Science video railing against Dad Bods (NSFW, NSFC- profanity, vulgar, crass).
- Canadian Olympic weight lifter Marilou Dozois-Prévost is not a she-hulk. (wiki)
- Indiana's friend (and director of IDCHTD) is hiking the Appalachian Trail and documenting some of it on IG @bradtastical.
- Jennifer Pharr Davis, the sister-in-law of our dear friend holds the record for fastest thru-hike of the AT. Her book, Becoming Odyssa, about her first thru-hike was a great read (more endearing than Wild!).
- On Monday, we'll do a stand-alone post about the workouts we currently do. Sound good? [UPDATE: Here is it!]
- LUNA Bars were at TxSC in full force, and Indiana literally tried every single flavor they had. Favorites from the protein line-up include Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Salted Caramel, and Chocolate Coconut Almond. Each boasting 12 grams of gluten-free protein goodness, LUNA bar is an easy indulgence for Indiana on gym days.
Quote of the show:

- Had you heard the term "dad bod" before?
- How has age affected your fitness routines?
- What are some of your own short and long term fitness goals?
