Female Sex Hormones, Muscle Proteins and Human Performance
Podcast by Misbah Haque of The Airborne Mind Show

Dr. Irene Tobias joins us this week to drop more science! She is a PhD Biochemist and an MIT alumna who is a part of Dr. Andy Galpin’s team and also a member of Invictus. In this episode, we dig into her speciality of research, which includes the study of a molecule called AMPK.

How does it relate to exercise and recovery? What are some of the challenges that scientists face when conducting research?

AMPK: The Master Metabolic Regulator that’s Activated by Exercise
Written by Invictus member Dr. Irene Tobias

Have you ever wondered what molecules are involved in your body’s metabolic response to exercise? What turns on the processes of breaking down your energy reserves so you can rapidly fuel your high intensity workouts? What primes your muscles to receive nutrients in the post-workout ‘Window of Gainz’? The molecule known as AMPK is one of your body’s key metabolic regulators and is responsible for all of these activities and much more!
