Welcome to this week’s episode of Thyroid Strong where I speak from experience about Hashimoto’s and workout fatigue, outline why you are burning out during and after your workouts and how to change your lifestyle to maximize your energy levels.
Key Takeaways on Hashimoto’s and workout fatigue
All exercise is inflammatory, but it is rest and recovery that is the main benefit of exercise. Today, we learn how to adjust our movements to avoid joint hypermobility and how to feed our muscle tissue appropriately in the recovery process.
Two Ways You Are Burning Out with your workout
Most of us Hashi ladies are overdoing our workouts. We are working out 6 to 7 times a week for long periods of time. Let’s dial it back to 3 to 4 days a week. While working out, most of us are only doing cardio. For our bodies, we need to focus on resistance training for 30-40 minutes for each workout.
Protein Intake & Functional Compound Movements
Rest and recovery is the main benefit of exercise, and that includes feeding our body appropriately. We have a 15-20 minute window of eating 30 grams of protein per meal. So chew slower and only eat when it’s time for the next meal. While we are putting more muscle on the bone and feeding ourselves appropriately, we also need to adjust the movements in our workout. Focus on functional compound movements with lower reps to maximize energy.
