EP123: How to Succeed with Your Diet Long Term & the Coaches Guide to Financial Health w/ James Krieger

Vigor Life Podcast

Vigor Life Podcast · EP123: How to Succeed with Your Diet & A Coaches Guide to Financial Health w/ James Krieger James Krieger is a scientist, trainer, bodybuilder, and author of the Weightology Research Review. He has a master’s degree in nutrition from the University of Florida and another in exercise science from Washington State. James also started Fit Pro Financial to help coaches develop financial health and learn how to manage and invest money so that it works for them. I catch up with James to talk about the principles that help anyone succeed with nutrition long-term. We also break down some myths that have become obstacles for people to simplify and win when it comes to their diet. In the second part of the podcast, we dive into financial habits for coaches and how to be “financially healthy”, touching on principles, mindsets, as well as specific strategies to help you build your bank account and security. IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN Why most people who try to lose weight succeed, they just didn’t succeed at keeping it off (a bigger obstacle for most). The number 1 predictor of weight loss is dietary adherence – it’s by far the most important thing (and most difficult since our brains are wired to work against us). Why the Western-style diet overrides your signals of appetite regulation and makes you want to eat more food (without realizing it) and how to avoid that minefield. Why there is no “best diet” and the question that will help you determine which nutrition approach to go with. Why introducing as many barriers as possible can be a good strategy for weight/fat loss. The reason “working for your food” is a key strategy in success. 5 powerful strategies/rules for your daily nutrition that help clients achieve sustainable results. Why tracking your food even for a short period of time can be helpful for awareness (and what to do if you don’t want to track). A template I use with clients that have been successful at getting results without tracking calories. The reason less variety is a GOOD thing for nutrition success (and some studies on buffets that confirm why a lot of choices is detrimental). The reason exercise is SO important when it comes to maintaining weight loss (the scientific data is overwhelming on this). Why you MUST have a plan to not fall back into your old habits when you’re transitioning into “weight maintenance.” What is reverse dieting and why its more of a mental trick than it is a physiological adaptation that “protects your metabolism.” How being unfit and obese affects your decision-making and mental outlook in the world (and why strength training is a keystone habit). Why the financial habits of the average American are NOT good, and just like nutrition, is a skillset you must build. We dive into what and how. How James made money, lost it all, and then rebuilt it back up with rules and structure and what you can learn from it (and why being a day trader is the hardest “easy money” you’ll make). 2 BIG lessons when it comes to investing and trading. 3 out of 4 Americans don’t have enough savings to cover a $1,000 emergency (when the goal should be 6-12 months – we’ve learned that with COVID). Don’t buy s@*t you don’t need (filter it and factor in needs vs wants). My rules for whether to buy something or not and when to put it into investments (and what categorizes investments). James’ 4 principles to live by to be financially healthy.

The Great Weight Vest Experiment w/ "Dr" James Krieger

The Pump

Last year Eric Lee Salazar enlisted the help of (honorary Dr.) James Krieger in pursuit of his eventual IFBB pro card. Eric had an idea, "what if I wear a weighted vest all day long? Think it will make prep easier?" In this episode we talk with James about the limited research and the potential mechanisms to the results that followed.

James Krieger on How Many Sets You Should Be Doing (and Why)

Muscle for Life with Mike Matthews

“How many sets should I do?” “When should I add more volume and how?” These are questions I get all the time, and especially lately. That’s because some recent studies have shown that basically, the more you do in the gym, the more you grow. Some studies suggest that doing as many as 40 sets per muscle group per week results in more growth than doing 20 sets. Is that really true though? And if so, how many sets should you be doing every week for optimal growth? Should we just do as many sets as possible? And on the opposite side of the coin, is there a minimum amount of volume we can get away with? To help answer these questions, I invited James Krieger back onto the podcast. Not only is he a published scientist and researcher, but he’s an accomplished writer who’s published a humongous treatise on training volume on his blog Weightology. His work is a legitimate “bible” on training volume that’s examined just about every study you’d be able to find on this hot topic. In this episode, James enlightens us on … - The different methods of counting volume and which one’s best - How many sets beginners should do and how that changes as you get more advanced - Whether you can “resensitize” your muscles to volume increases - If you should “cycle” your volume - How to specialize certain muscle groups - And a lot more! So, if you want practical guidelines on how much volume you should do for optimal training, and how to keep making gains, and breach plateaus, listen to this episode. 7:02 - What is volume? 8:56 - Why do you prefer number of hard sets over total reps? 10:13 - How much volume should I be shooting for, for each of the major muscle groups? 14:23 - Why do you have to up the stimulus from intermediate to advance weightlifting? 20:02 - At what point should you consider doing more, how far can you take it, and why? 26:37 - How would you approach focusing on one major muscle group? 36:16 - With the studies that showed growth with lower volumes, were those with experienced weight lifters? 37:22 - Is there a point where volume doesn’t become a stimulus anymore? 45:11 - What are your thoughts on direct versus indirect volume? 49:42 - Where can people find you and your work? --- Mentioned on The Show: James Krieger's Website: https://weightology.net/ Shop Legion Supplements Here: https://legionathletics.com/shop/ --- Want to get my best advice on how to gain muscle and strength and lose fat faster?
