WHIP: walking, heavy weights, intensity and plyometrics. That’s my system for the four things we need to have covered with our exercise training program as women. This system becomes more important with every passing year – and for a variety of reasons, it can be harder and harder to do! It may be finding the time, lack of know-how or fear of injury, waning motivation or simply not understanding the benefits these four aspects give us.
I cover all of that in this episode including how to know if your weighs are “heavy enough” and a phased approach to incorporating plyometrics – and how that move in particular can really enhance our livelihood as we age. It’s all about power and agility and we need that more and more yet many of us are lacking this aspect from our training.

Most of us need more of it’s prebiotics and antioxidants in our diet and Manuka honey from Manukora is my new fav way to sup up my protein shakes and afternoon cup of tea as it’s got three times more of these compounds than regular honey! And ‘tis the season for getting sick and the thick, carmel-like Manukora 850+honey also has antimicrobial compounds to help us stay healthy.

Did you know that 95% of women taking a prenatal are still nutrient deficient? The founders of Needed saw this as a big problem and I couldn’t agree more! But Needed quickly became a bigger solution to a bigger problem by providing more options for moms and moms to be. Women need so much support during the time from thinking about getting pregnant all the way to having little ones and so often they are left with options that don’t address their needs (prenatals that have nutrients in the wrong forms or that they can’t take due to nausea) or they are left with low energy, anxiety or even colds/flus while they are pregnant or nursing because there aren’t natural products that are considered safe during these times. Needed solved all of these problems as well as created a community of no-guilt, education and support for new moms and moms to be.
