Hello! I would be interested to hear you cover something around appetite and weight regulation after weight loss. Historically, I maintained my weight intuitively. After gaining a significant amount of medication weight (and intentionally losing it through a calorie deficit), my weight tends to trend upwards when I return to eating intuitively. Is there any science behind this?
What time of the day should I train? I work remotely, so I‘m quite flexible and I already tried different times. I feel like going to the gym in the evening is super stressy as it is so crowded and my gym ist kinda small + I can’t fall asleep afterwards (cortisol levels I guess?). Working out during the day is my go to but I have to shift meal timing all the time and the calls I have from work :/ I would love to go in the morning so it is checked off for the day, but I often feel very tired around afternoon and want to take naps if I‘ve been to the gym in the morning, which also makes me neglect my tasks :( Any tips?
My left knee has a history of subluxation and the ligament holding my kneecap in place (MPFL) was replaced in 2021. Though I've been back at full speed with my lifts for almost 2 years now, I'm still noticing an obvious imbalance in my quads, particularly my left vastus medialis and lateralis being so weak that my leg shakes when trying to do a one-legged squat. Any particular exercises you recommend to lessen the imbalance?
Sometimes when I'm working on overhead pressing movements, my left shoulder feels like it gets stuck and I am afraid that if I try to push through it will either subluxate or create a lot of pain. This seems to happen about 30-40% of the time and doesn't happen when I bench vertically or incline. Could this be a mobility issue or something else? My coach has said that my form looks fine, so I don't think it could be a form issue.
