(#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.

Our proud podcast partner is Momentous. 

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.

Check out and use the code "RDELLA20" to save $20 off your first order.

I've been using the "Absolute Zero Grass-Fed Whey" blend and also the Plant-Based blend, as well.

With Momentous, you have different protein source options and great varieties to choose from.

I typically 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 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.
