Could Lifting Be What You Need to Run Faster?-Meghan Kennihan
In today’s episode, we’ll be debunking a few fitness myths and learning some important tips with certified personal trainer and running coach, Meghan Kennihan. Meghan has loved sports for as long as she can remember, including: being on every sports team in her school and running several marathons and triathlons, but hitting several bumps along the way.
These are some of the topics we covered:
- Meghan’s transition from running to power lifting
- Differences between running and strength training and how to pull them both off
- How to mix-up your workouts for a better fitness experience
- Meghan’s nutritional tips and tricks
- How to feel confident and self-empowered
- How working out affects daily life
Meghan goes on to explain the challenges she faced in fitness, due to her “ADHD personality” and wide array of skills, which ended up in her trying every sport under the sun. Not only did she push herself too hard in a few, but she learned some useful information along the way that she was more than happy to pass on to us.
This includes breaking down some important subjects like:
- Why women can’t get bulky from strength training
- The truth behind the women that are
- What to do if you think you have orthorexia
- The importance of rest and correct form while exercising
- What your diet should really look like
- How to resist putting too much pressure on yourself
Meghan’s to-the-point and unbiased attitude make for a great listen if you’re interested in running, strength training, or really in any area of fitness at all. For more information about Meghan, check out her website: http://www.trainwithmeghan.com/
