And when it comes to long-term fat loss, weight lifting is possibly the most effective modality one can embrace.

11:22 Strengthening the rhomboids: Stretching the major and the minor pectoral muscles is the first step
14:43 Sleeping: Turn off your screens at least one hour before bed
18:00 Foam rolling: Dr. Milliquet finds foam rolling to be very valuable. Cushy rollers are not helpful—if you’re not in pain, you’re not doing much.
19:06 Decreasing inflammation: Taking fish oil supplements and eating a healthy diet help fight inflammation. Happiness is a huge part of health.
21:20 Crossfit carry-over

37:05 Muscle-building tips for women: Push yourself to the limit. Create muscle fiber damage, so it comes back stronger. Make sure that you are eating enough protein.
38:46 Dr. Milliquet’s favorite nutrient: German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) is her favorite herb. It’s a calming tea.
