The Nourished Nervous System Podcast

Episode  42 - The Nervous System as a Lens in Strength Training with Kali Perry

 Hosted by Kristen Timchak          

The nervous system is connected to everything.  So no surprise that if you strength train you can use knowledge of the nervous system to leverage your training.  

In this conversation with Kali Perry she talks about this and so much more.  Kali is a strength coach specialized in sports performance, injury mitigation and chronic pain reduction.   She works with a wide variety of individuals ranging from professional athletes to people who have never been able to work out before due to physical limitations.   A big component to her coaching is nervous system education and helping her clients find what homeostasis feels like.

In this episode:

  • Kali's story of coming to strength coaching through her own journey of injury and chronic pain
  • Strength coaching as a wholistic practice
  • How Kali uses nervous system information in training sessions
  • The importance of recovery 
  • The magic window of super compensation
  • Strength training as a practice of resilience
  •  How Kali used strength training and nervous system regulation to prepare for surgery- and her amazing results
  • Zen and the art of strength training
