In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Morning guys, this is Mike from North Carolina. I got a question for the Crew. Oftentimes John breezed over how he was in Flint and sedatives at one time during his career and that he fixed it over the course of about a year, but he’s never gone that into it and currently myself and some of my co-workers in the military. We found that we are the same right now. We’re a little insulin sensitive. So just wanted to reach out and see if John could deep dive that a little bit like how he got to where he needed to be if you’re wondering what kind of range we’re working with right now. All of us are pretty much fasted glucose over like 115-116 like kind of sitting in that range some days.

Unchecked blood sugar can wreck havoc on your training now and quality of life later. There are a lot of mechanisms kicking up your insulin you need to focus on: crappy sleep, shift work, over stressed, and too much Nickelback from this week’s caller. John and Tex sit down to discuss the research done to show the negative effects on the body, and take you through how to get your blood sugar regulated through lifting, aerobic capacity work, and getting your nutrition dialed in.
