In today’s episode, Vinnie and Dean answer listener questions about fitness for runners, fitness over 40, Serena and Wendy, Vinnie’s shoulder  surgery and Vinnie kinda flipping out when a listener, known as Jess, says that Vinnie got cancer because he eats meat!  Worth the price of admission...

Dean the Kayaker Asks How is Fitness Different After 40

  • Muscle builds up at the same rate at 40 as it does at 20
  • Need more down time and need to start easy
  • Body adapts...24 - 48 hours between workouts is good

Courtney Asks What Exercises Are Good for Running

  • Runner’s upper body not used
  • Planks help build core, overhead press, rowing and/or lat pulls
  • Ham strings are important and need to be worked
  • Quads also need to be worked

Serena and Wendy Want to Know Why Vinnie Doesn’t Fix His Shoulder

  • Vinnie is concerned that the surgery needs a lot of downtime for recovery and he doesn’t have that kind of time to spare
  • Vinnie is always in pain...Football ripped his shoulder to bits
  • Very little range of motion in shoulder
  • Surgery can only be done once since there is very little bone to work with

A Caller Named Jess

  • Apparently, Jess believes Vinnie got cancer because he eats meat!
  • And Vinnie, in Vinnie’s unique way, lets Jess know he is wrong
  • Vinnie “gently” explains to Jess that cancer can strike anyone and while diet can does not exclusively cause or cure disease
