Time Stamps:



00:00 Moving skeletal muscle impacts your body’s central and peripheral circadian clock system.

01:20 Sift workers, diabetics, pre-diabetics, and people with sleep apnea have a perturbed circadian clock system within their muscle tissue.

02:00 Peripheral circadian clock is influenced by meal timing, fasting and exercise timing. The peripheral, in turn, influences the central circadian clock.

02:40 Early morning exercise can foster you into a morning person.

03:25 Be consistent with exercise timing, light, darkness, and meal timing.

05:43 Poor sleep influences levels of blood sugar, leptin levels and blood glucose control. Exercise can work to remedy this.

06:30 Shift workers have higher risk of heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes.

07:20 Exercise when you can consistently exercise.

08:00 80% of whole-body glucose is stored in skeletal muscle.

08:55 Staying up late or jet lag changes fat oxidation and your mitochondria’s ability to oxidize fats and lipids in muscle tissue.

11:40 Consistent exercise is the best way to keep your clock regulated.
