Mountain Biking and Nutrition, with Jenny Corso [Podcast]

Jenny Corso is a cyclist and R&D Scientist who has studied exercise nutrition and physiology through various undergraduate, graduate, and PhD programs. She’s also a licensed USA Cycling coach, and has written many articles for Singletracks on topics including fitness, nutrition, and travel. How is exercise metabolism separate from just everyday metabolism? How are nutritional needs different for athletes? How do you look at studies regarding the health of certain foods, which are often contradictory, and what’s the best way to take this into account when making decisions about what to eat? Is gluten bad for athletes, or people in general? Nutrition and exercise clearly go hand in hand in terms of health. But does one win out over the other in terms of outcomes? Is intermittent fasting good for athletes? Why do you think nutrition is so difficult for many people to get right? Connect with Jenny for coaching and consultation through her website, truphys.com where she delivers objective information on scientific research on nutrition and exercise.

A Mountain Biker’s Guide to Nature [Podcast]

Most, if not all mountain bikers are nature lovers too. For many of us, it’s the main reason we ride off road. This week, we want to share our stoke for nature and perhaps inspire others. How important is the natural aspect of mountain biking to you? Has your interest in nature grown since you started riding? What do you find most interesting on the trail — trees, plants, vistas, rocks, wildlife, or something else? What is your favorite type of ecosystem for mountain biking? What are some places you’ve ridden where the natural beauty surrounding the trail really stands out? What are some natural highlights you’ve experienced on the trail? Do you see any tension between having a love and respect for nature and riding or building trails? Do you think there are ways mountain bikers can be better natural stewards? What do you think about the fight between various recreation groups over land access? Is there at least common ground we can recognize? Sponsored by TripOutside.com whichm...
