Ep98 Q&A: Surviving the Graveyard Shift, Dressing Properly To Be Active At Work, and Recovering From Intense Events

Released Thursday, 10th November 2016
Good episode? Give it some love!
A common question I get from listeners and readers is, "How can I survive the graveyard shift, and what strategies can I use to maintain my fitness and health working late at night?" We answer this question and more in the latest edition of the Q&A podcast, as well as sharing why if you are working a late night shift you should quit your job as soon as humanly possible because of how it's destroying your health and well being. And no...you can't just "sleep it off" when you're done.
We also talk about ways you can dress properly if you plan to be active at the office (no funny "toe shoes" necessary), as well as what you should really focus on to maximize recovery after doing a grueling event like a marathon or a Spartan Race.
