The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

Today's question is around plant-based versus whey-based proteins and the big question is when should you use a plant-based protein versus a whey-based protein?

Tim Caron:

More people than you realize actually have an intolerance or an allergy towards whey protein.

Whey is a very fast digesting protein, so when you're looking at something that quickly digests, you may potentially have some adverse reactions.

Signs and symptoms including distended gut, some skin irritation, inflamed joints, potentially loose stools, excessive flatulence, acute nausea. These might be all indications that you're not tolerating your whey protein as well as you should.

Now, we need to supplement something in terms of getting increased protein levels, so a plant-based protein, usually kind of a combination of rice, hemp, and pea from really high quality sources, organic, and things that actually blend to make a complete protein.

Plant based protein might be a really good alternative that doesn't have as much digestive issues as a whey protein.

(#286) Training, work, family, projects. Is there such a thing as a balanced life?

In this week's session, I had a great question from our community member Anthony who wanted me to open up about how I train and achieve work-life balance.

Here's the truth, life balance (or work-life balance) is a myth.

There's no such thing. But this is actually good when you understand how it works and how it actually makes your life better.

This was something I discovered years ago and now I'm sharing this with you.

I'll tell you the secrets to how I've sustained my excitement and passion for training for decades and how I manage this through life's challenges and stresses.

[click_to_tweet tweet="To achieve an extraordinary result - you must choose what matters most and give it the time it demands. This requires getting extremely out of balance at times.

The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

Today's question is can you explain the different whey sources on the market? For example, isolate, concentrate, hydrolysate, can you explain what they mean and how they're different?

Tim Caron:

Isolate is a whey protein extracting out all the fat and just leaving the form of protein in terms of whey.

Hydrolysate is basically an isolate that goes through a heating process, breaks down the peptides in to more individual amino acids and removes excess amounts of casein and sugar, specifically lactose.

In the case of whey, they bio-availability and the rapid absorption is really, really important, which makes a big difference in terms of post-workout amino acid pool.

We want to have one that's a little more broken down.

The caveat to that is having an ability to digest whey and if it is really quick digesting and you have digestive issues, you're going to have a hard time with a very fast breaking down whey protein, like a hydrolysate.

So, altering that potentially with a plant-based protein might be something you need to look into based off your ability to digest these really quick digesting proteins.

The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

Today's question is how much protein can be consumed and utilized by the body at one time and what can alter protein consumption?

Tim Caron:

It depends a lot on your ability to digest proteins and your overall body mass.

More muscle mass usually leads to more overall calories or individual macronutrients, in general, in specific to protein.

So, when we take protein in abundance, this has a high satiety level and satiety means that we're going to get filled really fast.

It's really difficult to determine an exact amount, but typically the bigger you are and the better you digest proteins, the more you can do that, which leads to the quality of the protein.

You don't need as much when you have a higher quality of protein relative to eating a lower quality of protein mixed with some other things that might affect your actual satiety levels - like high sugar, maybe really processed foods, savory, salty foods.

Getting higher quality protein, in conjunction with higher quality foods, helps your ability to digest and assimilate proteins at a higher level.

The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

Today's question is when does it make sense to use a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) product? What does the research say about this?

Tim Caron:

BCAA's, in regards to what's actually in them, is a combination of leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

Reasons why we want to have those three individually is largely due to getting leucine in our body.

Leucine's an amino acid that's used during training, but it also stimulates the protein synthesis pathways.

Now, in terms of what research is saying, a lot of it's actually leaning towards more essential amino acids and having amino acids that your body's not capable of producing kind of covers a lot more bases.

If we're looking at getting our leucine levels to stimulate one energy production during training, as well as protein synthesis, having a lot more coverage in terms of all the essential amino acids is definitely where research is leaning towards and showing more promise.

BCAA's still hold weight and can still be effective, just more research is leaning towards using essential amino acids.

(#283) In this week's episode, I'll share the story about the fitness workshop that literally changed my life.

By making a simple decision to sign up for a one-day kettlebell training workshop, little did I know that it would change my life and lead me down an entirely new path over the last 10 years.

This one experience was the "big domino" that changed everything.

I'll tell you the story and the 5 major lessons I look away from that experience.

And, my hope is that you come away from this episode knowing what your next step is.

Here's a few things you'll hear about this week:

  • Why a "live" training event can be transformational for you
  • My major "aha" moments during the workshop experience
  • What shocked me the most about attending this event
  • How that experience started the "domino effect" for the last 10 years
  • The most valuable lesson I learned about myself after it was over...

The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

Now, we've talked about the NSF certification before and the question today is when it comes to supplements, when do we need to look at with this certification (the NSF certification)?

Tim Caron:

If you're an athlete you should always be conscientious of what you're putting in your body.

If you're someone who's competing you should always have a high standard in what you put in your body.

In general, if you're investing in supplements you should always have the highest possible standard of what you're putting in your body, that makes a huge difference.

And, when you're really evaluating your process of training and nutrition and supplements opting for the highest quality caliber of things to do and having a third party (NSF is the most widely respected independent certification organization today) that that actually can comes in and help you make that decision.

It makes that process just a little bit easier, as well as a little clearer, on what you need to do.

The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

Tim, today's question is what's most important to look for in protein supplements and how do we sort through so many different options that are available today?

Tim Caron:

Ingredient list. Look at the back of the label and actually seeing what's in there. Can you pronounce the ingredients? Do they look familiar? Are these things that you feel like something that wouldn't be hazardous to your body?

I think there's a lot of intuition that should be used when you're looking at any supplements. The quality of the ingredients matters and as we dissect each one of these proteins, they have to have these products that have a shelf life and also have some sort of ability to break down and taste good when you're mixing it.

So, looking at the back of the label and making sure it's grass-fed, making sure it's organic, making sure you can enunciate each one of those names makes a big difference in terms of how your body's going to react to that.

Looking at the nutrition label should be paramount in most people's process of evaluating everything. Make that your first and foremost priority and you should be okay.

Momentous is my #1 recommended protein that is available on the market today. This protein source is the highest-quality, it tastes amazing, and it's well-tolerated. Don't settle for sub-standard protein supplements. Momentous is simply outstanding. Available in whey or plant-based varieties.

I've been using the "Absolute Zero Grass-Fed Whey" blend, pictured below.

I mix Momentous with frozen organic strawberries and a 50/50 blend of unsweetened almond/coconut milk and it is FANTASTIC!

The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

Today's question is do we really need to supplement with protein sources like protein powders and why?

Tim Caron:

We wish we lived in a perfect world where the reality is we can get all of our protein needs met by food.

The unfortunate thing is we don't. People are busy, athletes are on the go, if your training goal is always to be in a net positive in regards to your amino acid pool, but it's also really hard to get a full complete meal after your workout.

Now when we're looking at post-workout, a really big benefit in terms of recovery is having bio-availability and actual proteins that digest quickly.

Things like whey protein and plant-based protein, they actually digest quicker and in terms of getting your amino acid pool replenished to be in net positive in terms of overall protein, so you can build muscle. Protein supplements do make a big impact.

If we're really trying to get the maximum out of our training, we need to make sure that we're having the recovery aspect dialed in afterwards. And just having a convenient, useful tool to get that protein need met, that does make it necessary.

The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron

Scott Iardella:

Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.

The question today is about the NSF certification. What is important to know about the NSF certification on product labels and can you please explain what it is?

Tim Caron:

The NSF is a third-party group that evaluates products and how we're looking at supplements. A lot of it's unregulated so we need to have some sort of intervention in regards to saying what the ingredients are, saying that they actually have them, someone following through with them, and why that's important for you as a customer. Potentially you're an athlete, potentially you're someone who's under the guidelines of testing and seeing if you're actually under other substances that are not conducive to a competitive and equal playing field.

NSF comes in and meets us in the middle in providing a service that makes companies hold themselves to a higher standard and the process to go through that is fairly rigorous. Having that piece of mind, knowing that a company went that extra step to actually really follow through and have integrity to make sure that they're providing really high quality products that actually say what they mean, that makes a big difference.

As an athlete, as someone who's competitive, or just wants a higher quality, NSF is something you should really look for in your supplements.

(#278) In this week's session, I'm going to discuss a topic that is near and dear to me. Youth Sports.

As a parent, coach, and sports spectator myself - there are clearly issues that need to be discussed.

This session is for parents and coaches to better understand a few of the big problems associated with youth sports today. I'll discuss some problems that I have observed through the years.

This is certainly a massive topic and we could easily make this a series of podcast episodes, so we'll just consider this a starting point for discussion.

What's the #1 problem in youth sports?

I'll discuss that and so much more this week.

I don't believe in discussing problems unless you have some answers, so I'll even offer simple solutions for each point I cover in the show.

There's a lot of content in the episode and I know you'll find this session valuable and useful, but I'd love to get your feedback on this.

Let me know your thoughts or experiences by posting your comments below.

This session is designed to inspire action and taking the next step, whatever that "next step" is for you.

Additionally, I'll share some specific applications to performing a safe and effective overhead press, whether you use a kettlebell or any other training implement.

I'll even offer a "call to action" for future research in this area.

To maximize the effectiveness of the much-debated overhead press, take a listen to this week's episode.

(#252) What's the difference between training for maximum muscular development and true strength training? Yes, this is often misunderstood.

Thanks to a great question from Ian (one of our loyal listeners to the podcast), I wanted to answer this question in detail - especially since I'm a former bodybuilder.

While it's true that resistance exercise will provide gains in strength and muscle, the way we manipulate training variables has a great deal to do with maximizing results in either area.

I'll explain the key differences.

The Rdella Training® Podcast is published every week with valuable training information and amazing interviews with many “world-class” coaches, experts, and authors in the fitness industry.

In general, the image below depicts differences between training for maximizing muscle mass versus training to maximize strength gains.

There's more to it than this, but this represents a fundamental overview of where the differences begin.

The evidence is highly suggestive that volume plays a key role in muscular development and there is still much more to be learned about volume-based periodization strategies.
