Episode 46: - Eric Trexler on Metabolic Adaptation, Non-exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT), and a Cross-Comparison of Aerobic Training, Resistance Training, and HIIT for Fat Loss

Episode 46 of the Strength Ratio Podcast features Phd of Human Movement Sciences and Stronger by Science Director of Education, Eric Trexler.

This episode expands upon the topic discussed with prior guest, Jackson Peos: metabolic adaptations to dieting. Eric explains how, when dieting, hormonal changes in the body create increased energy efficiency, increased hunger, and decreased energy expenditure. 

Next, Eric shares  what both his personal experience as a pro bodybuilder and what our best available evidence has to say about anaerobic and aerobic exercise for weight loss. He even touches on high intensity interval training in this discussion. 

Ultimately, Eric provides insights that can help you best preserve muscle and monitor fatigue during a weight loss phase.
