Exercise Science 101 is all about understanding the Stress Adaptation Curve and how human biology is innately connected to the rise of a challenge and adaptations from exercise. 
The Stress Adaptation Curve promotes the understanding that creating change and progress in your life isn’t a linear process.Our hope with exercise is that our body creates “functional adaptations” like improved health, more muscle, less fat, and increased performance.  However this isn’t possible without proper recovery.
The point at which the body responds poorly to exercise or any stress is during the recovery period – or lack thereof.  So if you want to guarantee results your best bet is to spend time with the science of recovery.
This episode is full of Exercise Science from the cellular level of protein synthesis to the cheapest most effective ways to elicit the body to perform it’s amazing self-healing abilities.

Jenn’s reference in Quote “better than 90 percent of the energy output of the brain is used in relating to the the body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism and healing.” Roger Sperry phd  (importance of being ‘on’)
