Podcast 003: How to supercharge workouts with the right preparation and supplementation Guest: Jose Reyes
Intro, Jose’s back story. Spearheading the fastest growing GNC in the nation for 4 years. Moving on the DAS labs and creation of Bucked Up!
On workouts in general. 30 years ago a “workout” was perceived to be going to the gym and lifting weights… bench, squats etc., with long rest periods in between. Today, workouts are often high intensity (CrossFit, Zumba, HIIT, Insanity, Tabata etc.) and a lot of people are into endurance sports like triathlon, running, etc. Do you see a change in the way people workout today, and how they prepare for their workouts, compared to 20-30 years ago?
