Endurance: Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, Part 1

Description: Host Brad Kearns talks about transforming once and for all away from the high-stress, mileage obsessed approach to an evolved approach that makes recovery the central focus of your training instead of suffering and enduring. And by the way endurance athletes, its time to turn off the endurance gene off the race course and quit enduring crappy jobs and toxic relationship dynamics. Be good to yourself and honor the importance of balancing stress and rest. If you experience a slight disturbance in immune function, don’t train at all!

Avoid black hole workouts and be okay with lowering your heart rate way below MAF, you still get an awesome training effect. Brad talks about his recent experiences with overdoing his beloved Speedgolf and experiencing burnout, and getting less consistent with cardio workouts to allow for more energy allocation to explosive workouts, which is the topic of part 2 of this important show.

Description: Host Brad Kearns and Dr. Lindsay finally capture some of the magic that happens during their random off-mic conversations. Yep, Brad pushed the record button and Lindsay immediately throws out some profound philosophical and psychological questions to ponder.

It’s undisputable that it’s better to be in control of your destiny than to succumb to manipulative social media programming, and excess body fat is often a symptom of lifestyle flaws that are compromising your happiness, health, fitness, and longevity. Its important to reach some basic fitness and health standards to avoid the pain and suffering of aging. These are other topics will hit you hard and really get you thinking about your goals and priorities. Lindsay says, “Maybe the best goal is to care about how you feel, instead of how you look.”
