Host Brad Kearns covers a few questions, going deep into some of the most important themes of successful endurance training, including: not stressing about how slow your aerobic pace is! It’s all about becoming more efficient at the low heart rates. Yes, going below aerobic max is just fine and develops those important aerobic energy producing enzymes and muscle fibers. Regarding dietary macronutrients, it’s a great idea to do a little bit of food journaling and entering into online macronutrient calculator so you can then ballpark your daily totals on the fly over the long haul.

Host Brad Kearns picks up the Interval Show series covering the content of the Primal Endurance book with part 1 of Chapter 7 - Sprinting. Pick the ideal training period/time of year, the ideal day, workout type (weight bearing is the best, but low or no impact works if necessary). Warm-up properly, choose the proper sprint duration, recovery periods, and reps. Brad says you need not do much more than 6 x 100m or 2 x 200m + 4 x 100m. Brief, explosive, and consistent quality efforts!

Here we review Chapter 7 on strength training, detailing the Primal Essential Movements, Maximum Sustained Power workouts, and the ideal strategies and guidelines to follow for endurance athletes. Specifically, avoiding the "blended" workouts that are too long, not intense enough, and deliver an unnecessary cardio effect that you are already good with; secondly, making brief explosive efforts that are functional and using many muscle groups
