I wanted to tackle one specific question I received recently around the physiological elements of stress. Understanding the relationship between the HPA-Axis, cortisol, and adrenals is vital for clients but also understanding practical application such as adjusting training volume and stress management techniques are just as important. We'll cover both of the physiology and practical application in this episode. Topics include:


- HPA-Axis, Cortisol, and Adrenals

- Other Episodes on Stress and Stress Management

- HRV and Stress

- Stress Indicators

- Resiliency Considerations

- Training Adjustment Example

- Cortisol Release Process

- PTSD and HPA-Axis

- Recapping on Cortisol

- Adding to FNMS

- Please Share, Rate, and Review
