About
The Garage Gym Athlete Podcast was born from a community of underground athletes you've probably never heard of before. The idea for this show stemmed from Jerred Moon, the creator of Garage Gym Athlete programming, when he would do weekly coaching calls with Garage Gym Athletes. He found each athlete had such a unique story, an inspirational journey, and had overcome their own set of challenges that could help impact other athletes...but only if the stories could be told to all. The athletes all have a diverse background; some from Powerlifting, CrossFit, Olympic Lifting, Endurance Training, Military Operators, Collegiate Athletes, Spartan Racers, Obstacle Course Racers, and many other forms of physical training. It takes the experience of these athletes braving the extreme heat, bitter cold, early mornings, and late nights to tackle their training and become athletes. This podcast is for Garage Gym Athletes and by Garage Gym Athletes. Athletes share their experience (whether a beginner or advanced), share their knowledge, and give us a glimpse into the life of a Garage Gym Athlete!! We all know the gym SUCKS...And it comes with a long commute, crowds of people, occupied equipment, and much worse...Also, home fitness SUCKS...Because the treadmill becomes a clothing rack...Or you spend an hour with a DVD jumping around in your living room...But we're changing the game...By providing the other guy (who's strapped for time) with intelligent training to help them perform and look like an athlete. Our aim is for this podcast to inspire your own Garage Gym journey and to pick up as much as you can from other Garage Gym Athletes who are crushing it!!

220: How Much Protein You Should Eat Per Meal

Garage Gym Athlete Podcast: The Ultimate Guide to Protein Intake In this episode of the Garage Gym Athlete podcast, we dive deep into the world of protein consumption, particularly focusing on the optimal amount you need in each meal to maximize muscle recovery and growth. We'll debunk the myths with a blend of science and real-world stories, starting with the eye-opening journey of a professional athlete's encounter with lactic acid and how staying informed can save you from falling for outdated "bro science." Our main discussion revolves around the groundbreaking BASICS study conducted in 2023, involving 36 young, active men. This research challenges the long-held belief about the upper limit of protein synthesis post-exercise, revealing that our bodies can utilize much more protein than previously thought. With a detailed comparison between ingesting 25g and 100g of protein after working out, the study utilized a sophisticated quadruple isotope tracer method to track muscle and whole-body protein synthesis over 12 hours. Understanding the critical roles of Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS) and Muscle Protein Breakdown (MPB) sets the stage for our discussion. These processes are essential for muscle maintenance, growth, and recovery, with MPS needing to outpace MPB to achieve muscle gains. The episode breaks down how a higher intake of protein—up to 100g—can significantly boost MPS rates, ensuring muscle growth and maintenance. We'll provide a practical takeaway for athletes and gym enthusiasts: aim for 1g of protein per pound of lean body mass daily. For instance, if you weigh 200lb with 15% body fat, your target is 170g of protein, spread out in meals as you prefer. Tune in to this episode for an insightful and practical guide on protein intake, backed by the latest science, to help you make the most of your recovery and muscle growth efforts as a garage gym athlete.

177: Is Interval Training Superior to Steady State Easier To Stick With?

This week isnt so much as a study is it a discussion on a section of a much larger paper specifically looking at high intensity interval training.

175: Sleep 5 hours per night and still workout? Science-backed Considerations of Slight Sleep Deprivation

In this episode, we cover a study that investigated the effect of nine nights of moderate sleep restriction on performance, hormonal responses and perceived fatigue in resistance-trained females. Results showed that volume load decreased slightly ( less than 1%) with SR, while mean concentric velocity was slower during SR for lower body compound lifts (up to 15%). Intraset velocity loss was up to 7% greater during SR. Other effects of SR included an increase in salivary cortisol area under the curve (42%), total training distress (84%) and session perceived exertion (11%). These results suggest that sleep restriction reduces markers of resistance exercise quality more than quantity, and increases perceived effort at the same relative intensity in female athletes. Big takeaway: How you feel after not sleeping is a big factor! Study covered: Sustained Sleep Restriction Reduces Resistance Exercise Quality and Quantity in Females. Knowles et al. (2022)

Setting Goals in 2023 Through the Lens of the Self Determination Theory

Most people are throwing goal-setting out the window in 2023! But why? Most people don't suck at setting goals, and they don't suck at achieving goals. The real struggle is understanding your psyche enough to set and achieve even your most ambitious goals. Today, we look at the science from the Self Determination Theory to uncover the true secret to achieving your goals. Today's referenced studies:  "Self-Determination Theory: A Macrotheory of Human Motivation, Development, and Health" by Edward L. Deci and Richard M. Ryan is a seminal paper that introduces the self-determination theory and outlines its key concepts and principles. It is widely regarded as one of the most influential and widely cited works on the topic. "The Hierarchical Model of Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivation" by Edward L. Deci, Richard M. Ryan, and Richard Koestner is a classic study that explores the relationship between different types of motivation and their impact on behavior. It shows that intrinsic motivation, which is driven by an individual's internal interests and curiosity, is more likely to lead to long-term engagement and positive outcomes than extrinsic motivation, which is driven by external rewards or incentives. "The Role of Autonomy in Motivational Processes" by Edward L. Deci, Richard M. Ryan, and Richard Koestner is another important study that investigates the role of autonomy in motivation. It shows that when individuals feel a sense of autonomy and control over their own actions, they are more likely to be intrinsically motivated and engaged in their activities. Conversely, when individuals feel controlled or pressured by external factors, they are more likely to be extrinsically motivated and may experience negative consequences such as burnout or lack of engagement.
