I recently had the privilege of visiting with renowned exercise physiologist, coach, and speaker Dr. Mike T. Nelson. Mike is a guy who is as intelligent as he is educated, and he’s at the pinnacle in both areas. We had a great discussion about metabolic and physiologic flexibility, online coaching, and Mike’s philosophy regarding lifetime athletics. We also spoke about coffee and kiteboarding! I know you are going to enjoy today’s episode.
Mike T. Nelson, PhD, MSME, CSCS, CISSN, is a research fanatic who specializes in metabolic flexibility and heart rate variability, as well as an online trainer, adjunct professor, faculty member at the Carrick Institute, presenter, creator of the Flex Diet Cert, kiteboarder, and (somewhat incongruously) heavy-metal enthusiast. He has a PhD in Exercise Physiology, and a MS in Mechanical Engineering (biomechanics). The techniques he’s developed, and the results Mike gets for his clients have been featured in international magazines, in scientific publications, and on websites across the globe. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, lifting odd objects, reading research, and kiteboarding as much as possible. You can find out more about him at his website at www.miketnelson.com.
In the show we made reference to the International Society of Sports Nutrition Stand: Caffeine and Exercise Performance.
