Exogenous ketones and exercise through the lifespan - Dr Brendon Egan

This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Dr Brendan Egan about exogenous ketones and exercise through the lifespan. They talk first about exogenous ketones, how they might be used in different exercise contexts, where the science is at (and lacking) and potential application in the longer distant events. They then shift gears to discussing exercise in general, and why strength, muscle function and muscle health are important concepts as we age. They discuss the potential for a catabolic crisis and how this can take decades worth of muscle off somebody’s frame, they talk about sarcopenia (and how we might best define it through the lens of increasing opportunities to avoid it, rather than from a diagnosis/deficit model) and what counts in terms of strength work as we age (i.e. gardening? Pilates?)
