Simplifying Hormones w/ Sam Miller

Episode 204

I brought Sam Miller on the show today because he is a guru when it comes to all things hormones. We touched on Cortisol, Tesosterone, and a little bit of Insulin. We dove deep and provided EVERYTHING you actually need to know when it comes to these hormones and how they effect both your body composition and your performance.
