Just saw this reply. I will check out the podcast.
I have been meaning to add that the fatigue I experienced earlier is not as apparent lately. I wonder if the fatigue had more to do with keto flu and a lack of electrolytes than anything else.
I wear a heart rate monitor when I work on the heavy bag (12-15 rounds) and I have noticed that my heart rate for the past few weeks has been significantly higher than it used to be. I am not sure what to make of that. E.g., my workouts used to range about ~45% in the anaerobic zone ~25% in the aerobic and the remaining 30% below aerobic. Recently, I’ve been spending a lot more time closer to my V02 max (a range I would previously only hit when I absolutely pushed myself to exhaustion). So, for example, today my heart range was as follows: 35% in my V02 max range, 25% in the anaerobic range, 20% in the aerobic, and the remaining 20% of the workout below that. So the intensity of my workouts have increased significantly even though I don’t necessarily feel like I’m exerting myself much more than I used to. I’m wondering if this means that my heart has to work extra hard for some reason? I don’t really understand, to be honest.
Anyway, if you have any insights, I’d be interested to hear. (Relatedly, my HRV score has been a lot lower lately, though it has been slowly rising post keto flu.)
Edit: I am listening to the Podcast. I’m a little over six weeks in so this all sounds about right. Thanks for recommending this, it’s exactly on what I was hoping to learn more about.
