Bitesize Biohack: Fuelling High Intensity Interval Training With Dr Stacy Sims

In this bitesize episode, from the recent in-depth interview with Dr Stacey Sims, hear about fuelling properly before different types of training along with how to effectively use both Sprint Interval training and High-Intensity Training throughout the menstrual cycle

Key Takeaways

  • Before training, women require protein to make sure that their resting metabolic rate recovers after exercise
  • The carb is primarily amino acid based
  • SIT is going as hard as you can for 20-30 seconds with 90-100 seconds recovery, with HIT the intervals are slightly longer
  • It’s about recovery from a cardiovascular and neuro-muscular standpoint so you can go again
  • In the luteal phase, you should usually avoid high-intensity training due to the stress it puts on the body

Best Moments

‘If you are going to do cardio you require protein with a little bit of carb in it’

‘It’s about short, sharp and very efficient ’

‘Getting out and doing a couple of short sharp 20-second intervals is magic’
