I asked my IG audience and my email list to send me topics they’d like me to either rate as over, or underrated, mainly in the field of fitness. And let me tell you, this was a FUN ONE.
This episode was unplanned. I literally answered these spitfire, off the cuff. First thoughts that came to mind is what you get here. So, tune in for details on the following topics. Here are my ratings:
Squats: Overrated by those who want to grow their glutes, underrated in terms of functionality and bang for your buck hypertrophy.
Lululemon: Underrated. I know. I know. Trust me.
Pre workout: Overrated
Converse: Undecided. Back in the day, overrated. Much better training shoe options now
Lateral raises: Underrated – sooooo many uses and variations if boulder shoulders are a goal of yours.
Spotify premium for workout playlists: LOL I don’t listen to music.
What is underrated for shoulder mobility? This one was fun…Not giving it to you here. Tune in.
Personal training certification: Needed, overrated but they shouldn’t be. They just wildly underdeliver. It’s complicated.
Social media content creation: UNDERRATED. I said what I said.
Deload weeks: Underrated
Morning routines: Over romanticized but actually underrated in the simplest use of them.
Exercise Bands: Overrated by people who think they are going to built a booty by only using bands. And underrated by people who think they are dumb.
Scheduled non-working hours: Mmmm neither. Tune in for my personal experience with this.
Intermittent Fasting: Overrated. Big time.
Creatine: Underrated. Even with it’s popularity. More people could benefit from it than do.
The (athletics) background of your coach or trainer: VERY interesting…
The equipment you are using: Overrated in the sense people put too much weight on this (no pun intended).
These answers require context. But I wanted to give you my short answers here. Again, listen in to hear more about where I draw these conclusions from.
