Enjoy the inaugural Primal Endurance Podcast with Brad Kearns and Mark Sisson. Brad and Mark discuss an assortment of topics relating to a Primal approach to endurance training, offering somewhat of a sneak preview of the topics covered in their long-awaited book, Primal Endurance.
Mark talks about reconciling his longtime passion for endurance training and elite competition with his Primal living path, where the chronic nature of serious endurance training conflicts sharply with the Primal philosophy and the three Primal Blueprint exercise laws of moving frequently at a slow pace, lifting heavy things and sprinting once in a while.
Mark is super enthusiastic about recent breakthroughs in endurance training philosophy, such as a renewed emphasis on preserving health while training intently, as well as the incredible breakthroughs offered by ketogenic endurance training. He talks about the benefits of being fat adapted and the drawbacks of training in an inflammatory, oxidative carbohydrate dependency pattern. Mark describes how an endurance athlete who needs to restock glycogen to recover from training can dial in carb intake to enjoy Primal living benefits and still perform.
