Chrissy King is a trainer, powerlifter and writer. I'm excited to have this woman on today to share her story about finding her spot in the fitness world and the adversity she deals with every day being a woman of color in a not so color dominated field.

Today's a Q&A! I asked and you guys delivered with some great questions. 

Here's what we'll cover: 

Does cardio affect strength? How can you balance both and what does my normal cardio:strength ratio look like?

Fasting: If you fast in a 12 hour window, how should you structure meals when life is crazy busy? How do you fit in enough food in a limited window? 

What's the #1 reason why women don't hit their fitness and body goals? I thought this was way too good to not answer it.

5 weeks ago, Alex (@work_hard_eat_harder) and I committed to trying Mind Pump's MAPS Strong Program. Based on strong man training. 

The 12 week program is divided up into 3 phases, each 4 weeks long with a different focus. 

We've had a lot of questions on the program, the workouts, the style, and the results so we sat down (turning a tropical storm) to share how Phase 1 went and recap our experience to one another.

How do you continue to stay motivated when the compliments and validation from others slows down? Because it always does. You're doing great, seeing results and everyone notices and comments.

Listen to your body. That's the #1 thing a trainer can tell you. Fitness isn't about beating yourself up but building yourself up. Crystal and I dive deep into training talk to help insure you get the best, safest and most effective training for goals.

This woman is amazing (her race log is incredible) but she doesn't train like "traditional" ultra trail runners but she succeeds. Less miles, more training, and the perfect example that sometimes less really is more.

Listen to Crystal Seaver's story, her passions, her training beliefs and what she hopes to inspire with her platform and drive.

OG listeners might remember when my husband Dan was my co-host? Well, those days are gone but I have been wanting him to drop in as a guest for a long time. 

Today we have a hilarious time searching the internet for fitness/diet headlines and giving our thoughts/opinions on what will be covered before opening up to see what these "experts" say are the answers. 

For example...

Best Core Moves? 
Best Exercises For A Tighter Butt?
How To Lose Weight Fast?
Best Leggings For Running?

Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed doing it! This WILL NOT be a regular segment on FWW Podcast, but we might have something up our sleeves ;)

This week’s episode is all about your questions! From fitness to nutrition, I received some awesome questions for you guys that I couldn’t pass on. I hope you enjoy the show and please keep shooting those questions over via Instagram, email or from the website.

Today’s Questions:

What kind of nutrition program am I (and Dan) currently following? Do we follow low carb, high fat/protein diet and what foods do we stay away from in our home for optimal health? (I think this answer is going to surprise you!).

How to workout when you’re recovering from an injury and feeling like you’re lacking on “the burn”? How many sets should you do? How many reps? What kind of weight?

A listener wrote in saying how much she loves MetCon style workouts and has her circuit training days up to 6 but wants to know what to do on the 7th day to round out her week? This is a really important question, so make sure to listen in!

We’re also going to catch up on life and chat about fitness, goals and more! What’s the plan for February’s challenge? It’s all about pushups, so listen in and let me know if you want to join me in my insanity!

This episode is all about becoming smarter and more aware! After catching up and talking recent workouts, we tackled some AWESOME reader questions... 

"I was listening recently you mentioned that you just finished the book "The Microbiome Diet." I have been struggling with my digestion for the past 2 months and following the Paleo guidelines, but it doesn't seem to be fixing the issue.  I can only imagine that it has something to do with my gut.

I am curious as to which other nutrition books you have read and enjoyed in the past and which ones you are looking into.  I am currently a personal trainer and have lately been very interested in nutrition.  I would like to keep learning and broaden my knowledge on all of the latest nutritional trends that we have seen in our society."

What a great question! Books mentioned:

The Microbiome Diet
The Paleo Cure
Eat To Live (Not recommended)
The Wild Diet
The Mind-Gut Connection (Super stoked to start)

And a few favorite mindset resources discussed:

Infinite Possibilities
Dying To Be Me
Finish
Sarah Blakely (on Youtube)

And the 2nd question we discussed dealing with exercise compulsion/addiction when you're stuck at a desk all day. How to relief feelings of anxiety from non-movement and to safely fit movement in your day.

Should you eat your placenta? Should you workout? How hard? How often? How heavy to go? Should you eat for two? Should you workout during pregnancy even if you haven't before? Should you wait six weeks after the baby is born to move again?

So many questions, so many awesome answers. Dr. Mary Sterrett, an OB-GYN from MUSC holds back nothing and allows me to ask her anything and everything for you guys in terms of women's fitness and pregnancy. 

Not of interest to you? That's okay, share it with someone who would find it interesting.

Progress isn't always linear when it comes to fitness. In this episode we discuss our latest competitions or attempts to compete and how to deal with disappointments when you expected more from yourself. Plus, learning when it's okay to quit. Sometimes it's not better to have tried at all and lost. Sometimes it's just not cool to be last.

Don't worry, there's lots of fun sprinkled in! Like Ashley sharing horoscope talk! Oh, it's good!

How do we change our outlooks on ourselves as we age? How do we become more confident? And how to become more forward and less of a people pleaser.

This weekend is a competition weekend for me and a PR test for Ashley so we share what we did right, wrong and what we expect. What happens when you just know you're not going to hit your A goals? Find out today!

Today is the perfect mix of everything. We're going to talk about shopping (ugh), life, and being the best woman we can be by learning how to balance being a delicate flower (lol) and a macho woman. Both are needed and both are okay to accept.

Additionally, what 3 pieces of fitness equipment do we recommend to create a home gym and going deeper... how we handle anxiety and overcoming exercise addiction.

If you ask Stacy, she'll tell you that I've been a blessing to her. That's not true. The moment I became her trainer, I was the one blessed. So much to learn from this woman and so much inspiration.

After several tours through Iraq as a combat photographer, Stacy was forced to leave the military after sustaining severe injuries from a bomb. Her life changed, her lifestyle changed and her mind and body changed. Listen to her story as she explains how the ketone diet has helped her seizures and how finding a womens studio has given her back her "team" and purpose. You guys, if you only listen to one of my podcast, listen to this one.

Hello friends! In this week's episode, Ashley and I hit on quite a few topics... the biggest being: Is it possible to gain muscle without fat? And if so, how? 

What kind of workouts should you do? What should your nutrition look like to fuel a body to gain a few healthy pounds of muscle and strength. As someone who has gained 15 pounds, you can imagine I have a few things to say about this one.

Oh and let's talk pimples!

6 week nutrition challenges are popping up all over the place, and recently Ashley (@AshleyDrummonds) and I received the question... "Why does this particular meal challenge have my friends eating nothing but tilapia and asparagus?" 

Our thoughts on this rigid meal plan plus catching up on our life happenings, workouts, books and more. Listen in and let us know what you think about 6 week challenges! Motivating? Or silly?

Macros, intermittent fasting, paleo, Whole30, keto... it's as if we need a plan to survive and eat. The other day I was telling Dan that I was going to start IF (intermittent fasting) with Alex to which he responded with...

"Why do women need a plan for eating!? Why can't you just eat good food, leave out the sugar and just eat when you're hungry?"

The man has a point. For so long, I've been tracking macros or trying something. Have we (women) forgotten how to naturally eat? Why do we need a plan? I talk about it today and also fill you guys in on some random happenings!

Girls Gone Wod with Joy and Claire is one of my favorite podcast. It's two friends sitting together and talking about life, food, fitness and everything else in between.

But recently Joy has been having a lot of deep chats about body image, what's positive and what's negative and how women are bringing one another down on social media by showing off their bodies instead of physical strengths.

As someone who has battled exercise addiction and food obsessions, I get it. But That doesn't mean I don't have a counter argument.

Luckily, Ashley (@AshleyDrummonds) is with me and we share VERY similar thoughts on positive body image between ladies. So sit back and enjoy. If you have thoughts don't hesitate to share!

If you have a hard time getting better at skills because you don't want to sacrifice your workout intensity to slow down and learn then this podcast is going to help! I'm the same but Ashley... she's the queen of balanced training.

We've heard stories about the women who lost their periods due to high intensity exercise, so they cut back for a bit, ate more and voila... period returns. (Listen to Ep 111 for Tina Muir's story). But that's not always the case.

What happens when you cut back on exercise, relax more with food, and nothing happens? No period, no hormonal changes... just frustration and more waiting. That's what's going on for my friend Emma (@healthybalancewithemma). I feel honored that she asked to share her story and the steps she's taken to work for her fertility.

In today's episode she shares everything. What led her to not have a period. How long she waited before seeing a doctor. And the steps she has taken since to try and regain her fertility. Please be kind and share some love as this is a very personal episode and takes a lot of courage to share.

Ashley (AshleyDrummonds.com) is back with me to discuss an issue that seems to be popping up everywhere: under eating.

You've likely seen women talking about losing weight while eating the most they ever have. Or women having a hard time losing weight because they aren't eating enough. In the current trend of Macros, undereating and overeating are getting lots of attention.

Recently, we've heard undereating being used as an excuse for lack of results and even weight gain... so let's talk about it. 

We break it down and explain the truth about not eating enough vs not fueling enough. There's a difference. 

We also talk wine, finds, and workouts. Enjoy!
