The Consummate Athlete Podcast Guide to Training Like Wonder Woman

Resident comic nerd Molly here! So, I went to see Wonder Woman last night, and naturally, as someone who loves the whole Consummate Athlete lifestyle, it got me super motivated to train. And that led to thinking about how to train like Wonder Woman. I started flashing back to some of the rad guests we’ve had on the show, and thinking about which ones would be the most relevant, and get me the closest to Wonder Woman-levels of fitness and skill.

(If you haven’t seen it, watch the trailer here!)

Pretty rad, right? So, let’s talk about training like a superhero, and get inspired!

How to Parkour with Adam McClellan

Of course, I have to open with Parkour. All the crazy free-running that happens in that movie immediately made me think of Adam and the couple of sessions that I’ve had with him, and some of the great advice he’s given on the show!

Peak Performance with Steve Magness & Brad Stulberg

These guys are brilliant, and so is their book. (Get a copy here.) While they might not teach any Wonder Woman-specific skills, if you’re doing any kind of training while mixing it with regular life (or, in her case, trying to stop a war and learning about the world of man… I’ll stop being a nerd now, I promise), this is a good one to listen to.

How to Start Obstacle Course Racing with Lindsay Webster

I kind of think Lindsay might actually *be* Wonder Woman, to be honest. Schlepping heavy weights like they’re nothing, bouncing over obstacles, racing for hours on end… Yeah, sounds about right. This was a super fun episode to record, and even more fun for me to re-listen to so I can steal some leaping-buildings-in-a-single-bound advice.

(Want a guy’s perspective? It’s also worth listening to our earlier episode with her husband,  OCR World Champ with Ryan Atkins!)

How to Run a Marathon with Aimee Shilling

Hey, you don’t get to comic hero level without an endurance base, and Shilling is the woman to talk to about that, since her marathon-running schedule is absolutely insane.

Self-Defense & Awareness with Krav Maga with Dan Gador

Those fight scenes don’t just happen, they take a ton of work. I personally loved this episode—and am so intrigued by Krav Maga—because it combines the stuff I was interested in with MMA with a bit more of a self-defense “I can actually kick your ass” side. And the basis isn’t kicking ass, it’s being aware of your environment. Not unlike Parkour, honestly.

How to Get Strong with Power Lifting with Robert Herbst

I mean, that tank didn’t lift itself.

How to Swim with Total Immersion Swimming

One of the early scenes is Diana saving Steve Trevor from the ocean. Now, I’m a good swimmer and this episode was a really interesting one for new swimmers, but I’m not sure I could pull a guy out of a plane 50 feet underwater. But next time I’m in the pool, I might try to touch the bottom in the deep end. Just for funsies.

Erin Taylor on Why You Need Yoga in Your Life and How to Hit Reset

Watching some of the fight scenes, especially the ones where the Amazons are just practicing, made me feel super self-conscious about my extreme lack of flexibility. Erin Taylor’s Hit Reset and Jasyoga is perfect because it’s yoga tailored to those of us who are more athletic, and less inclined to get serious about a true yoga practice.

Rock Climbing with Leslie Timms

A couple of the scenes in the movie centered around rock climbing (or tower climbing, to be more precise). And I don’t know any other woman I’d want giving me advice about climbing other than Leslie Timms, one of the top women climbers in the world and an all-around badass.

It’s pretty cool to realize how many episodes we’ve done that can all speak to this idea of being like Wonder Woman, but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Really, if you dig on mythology, the Amazons were sort of the first Consummate Athletes, so it makes sense.

Get training! (And let us know in the comments if you liked this article!)

TOPICS AND LINKS FROM TODAYS SHOW:

1) Quick Professional Bio –
   = YMCA
  = Group Exercise instructor and Corporate Fitness … working with public
   => Year sailing and then couldn’t/didn’t want to re-enter the corporate world so went out on her own for fitness and training Marathon Walkers
  -> Urban Poling called several years -> couldn’t get a good workout, poles/DVD … then took cert. course and realized the techniques
2) Why Nordic Walking/Urban poling?
  •   why decide to try?
  • 40+ running,
  • Mandy Shintani -OT from
  • ‘Perfect amount of challenge’ – enough for those who like group exercises and routines but not so complex that someone without interest could do
  • nordic walking is like swimming/tennis … it can age with you. Intensity and speed vary
3) similarities and benefits to cross-country skiing? 
 *My introduction to ‘pole running’ was through xc skiing
  • similar but not exactly the same … and NOT like hiking.
  • hiking poles are different -> hiking poles minimize effort while urban poling whereas URBAN poles add challenge
4) TECHNIQUE 
is this just walking with poles? How does technique/instruction come into the process?
  • Nordic technique – the length should be set to marking on URBAN POLING POLE based on height
  • land poles out front with a straight arm to have a straight arm  **SHAKE HANDS ***
  •  press down on outside edge of hands
  • poles landing beside foot but angled back at 45 deg
4) Gear Needed =  Difference in Poles/tips?  
  – can you get ones that are suitable for offroad and urban settings?
  – setting the length of telescopic poles
  •   rubber boot tip on pole + a rubber handle
  • poles will telescope (get longer/shorter)
5) What are classes like?
  = GTA classes at Mt. Pleasant and High Park -> what do these sessions look like?
   = mix of social, technique and walking adventure!
  =  some calisthenics
  => Double Poling exercise with Nordic Poling  – both pole landing and big push
6) Certification courses– who is the ideal instructor to come to these courses? (clientele they work with, area they need to work in etc)
      = 1/2 day and online course to cert
7) Common Mistakes in Poling? 
  = 1500 cert instructor will say keep your arms straight with a pendulum swing from the shoulder … don’t shorten the leaver.
   = ELBOW’s get a break today
   = HANDS TO handshake position and  thru so that hand is to thigh or past (all the way down)   => This informs and is affected by stride
      = dragging poles behind you … pickup poles a bit
9) How to look/feel prepared your first time poling? (how to not look like a newbie!) 
  =  don’t bring your xc ski or dh poles!
  =
10) What’s next for you, the fitness industry and/or poling? 
 = ultimate guide to nordic walking -> working on revised edition =>

In the brief span of four years, Hanna “Moogy” Muegge has made the improbable leap from German National Team & Division 1 collegiate basketball player, to Geographic Information System (GIS) Analyst and Pro-level cyclist.  Her journey to the bike is the result of perseverance, determination, and the discovery of natural talent.  While working for the municipal planning agency and exploring her creativity creating maps and analyzing data, Hanna is now focused on winning a National title and finding her place on the German National Team.
Hanna was raised in south-west Germany in the beautiful city, Tübingen . The oldest of three, and part of an incredibly athletic family, she excelled in a variety of sports while growing up including rhythmic gymnastics, track and field, and basketball.  After moving to the U.S., and completing a double major in Biology and German at Bradley University (IL.), Hanna followed her passion for protecting the great outdoors and received her Master’s from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in International Environmental Studies, with a concentration on Ocean and Coastal Resource Management.
After three amazing internship experiences in Germany, El Salvador, and the Island Nation of Palau, Hanna realized that her passion had always been to better the lives around her. Having grown up in areas with superb public transportation, she aims to use these experiences in helping improve the local transportation networks around her.
Hanna is a resident of Monterey, CA.  In her spare time, she diligently trains to become the best cyclist she can be together with her training partner and boyfriend, Chris Cain.  She loves to whip up delicious entrées, garden, take photos, and have fun with her friends and family on the Monterey Peninsula.

Thanks to Eric Batty & Chris Wood and Mark From Joyride for intelligence beforehand
Why speed hike (talk FKT, Peter past run with Eric)
What we packed / what we wish we had or didn’t have (rice bars / tent poles)
How the 2 days played out – hiking & camping
  •  well tested, waterproof but athletic shoe or hiker (low/light)
  • Peter used Salomon Trail Runners https://amzn.to/2JhEUso
What we would have changed (better bug protection, or would have gone at a different time of year—heard it would be buggy but didn’t know it would be that bad
  • less food / more ‘fuel’
  • Compress / premake meals
  • More research on sites / mile markers
  • Hydration packs vs. move water twice
What we did right
What we learned (one in a bad mood, other will rally \ we do this $hit so we can get to the end and have that reward of sitting down.)
What’s next?

  • Stacy’s Athletic Palmairs (Bio)

 

  •  Tell us about what and where you do what you to these days = 12 projects, marine science, female athlete health, marine peptides,

 

  • Roar – What would you change if you did a 2nd edition of the book? change heat – women need ‘primer’ heat exposure
  1. microbiome
  2. master and menopause
  • HEAT 
 => adapt – cardio adapt, sweat sooner , more dilute, more blood vol
 => sauna or spa – passive heat ex. while dehydrated 7-9 days in a row
=> temps? 40-42c hot tub palms and feet in   + SAUNA = 60-180 (top and bottom levels) = monitor resting hr
 =>
 => race venue early and hiit middle of day, air conditioning
=> youth before puberty not cope as  well, slow to sweat and drink => hormones come after puberty, women need primer->
                => masters, after menopause – cool beverages, passive heat exposure, no sunburn as ruin skin temp (UV protecting layers)
=> over-dress???? possible psychological? or placebo
  • ALTUDE? 
 = sea level to altitude – challenge to o2 delivery -> blood vol expansion can help (include more red cells)
 = also more carb/hydration at altitude
= altitude then
  • ALtitude for females
 = high hormone phase – higher resp. distress
 = higher carb at altitude and harder to access at high hormone phase -> heat adapt would help
 = can maintain every ~5 days
= fly in and fly out within 24hrs if no prep, otherwise 14-21 days is ideal. 3-4 days is worst but then rebounds ( there is individual difference )
 = weekends in mountains ahead of race w. riding and then sea level sauna could be a great combo
 = altitude tents = sleep quality is an issue, fitness
  • Biggest downfalls at Leadville misstepttep nutrition (increase carb and hydration) and sleep and recover (nutrient timing – post workout)
   =
  • Mapping Menstrual Cycle 
   =Fitter woman –
  = Hello CLUE –
   = GOOGLE –
  = make sure to track mood, feeling, training, and see patterns
 = training peaks
  • Adjusting nutrition and zones/threshodl for high hormone phase of period
  • Timing Period?  
  = off of birth control?
  = birth control may blunt adaptation to HIIT
  = never in low hormone state, start bleeding – folicular phase first 2 weeks, then high hormone phase (luteal or high hormone phase)
  =
  • Athlete Under-eating – Talk me through this concept of an overweight athlete and how to implement changes without tipping things too far?
  •   low energy availbility – need enough food to keep resting metabolic functioning (breath, endocrine, etc)
  • adding daily living more cals
  • ading training more cals
  • if drop cals then rmr then fatigue, more fat,  in only 4 days see thyroid dysfunction = eat more??
  • even 500 kcal will get there.
  • timing calories can help –
  • workig athletes who delay will see symptoms of relative energy def. (catabolic state)
