Understanding Energy Systems
If you spend any dollars or time on deep understanding of human anatomy and physiology, sign up for Dr. Najeeb Lectures. If you can watch 8 hours of lecture within the first 24 hours of signing up, you get a lifelong subscription for 5 dollars. When I first started studying his free content in 2011, the same program was 500-1000 dollars. .
This is invaluable for professionals in the industry. Studying the totality of the USMLE1 medical lecture series in 2012 changed my life forever. It’s still a big part of the reason for why I have so many health care professionals and other coaches as my clients and mentees.
Most importantly, it brings you clarity about all the body systems, particularly energy systems. If you study nothing other than the videos I’ve screen shot here, you will quadruple your value as a nutritionist, a special populations or athletic trainer, or advanced coach in the next weeks. What is and isn’t optimal eating and training becomes evident when understanding glucose transporters, sodium channels, insulin and non-insulin mediated pathways, affinities, low versus high Km, pancreatic beta cells, hepatocytes, nephrotic reabsorption, glucokinase, SGLT, acetyl CoA, and the roles of glucagon, catecholamines, and ketolysis... and more.
