Another podcast episode to help you train that much better for your next race.  As I get ready to head out on a vacation to North Carolina and prep for the Asheville Super, I wanted to get one more episode out for you before I check out for a week.  

In this one I chat about some of my go to strategies to avoid burnout and plateauing in your training.  When you push hard all the time, you are bound to break.  But with better planning I think most of these issues can be avoided.  

In my research review I share two studies that show you more is not always better.  When training you need to follow a plan and not just workout hard all the time.  There is a big difference.  Training harder and harder can lead you to move less throughout the rest of the day.  Check out these really interesting studies on how you change your energy expenditure based on how you train.  

I am also excited to have on the show SGX Coach Ryan Baxter.  Ryan is a software engineer turned health coach and obstacle course racer. He lives in New Hampshire with his wife, seven year old daughter and three year old son where he operates RJB Health Coaching. Ryan's interest in obstacle course racing began in 2015 when he ran the Spartan Stadium race at Fenway Park in Boston. After crossing the finish line he was hooked.

Not being an athlete growing up, he began to search for resources on how to optimize his performance in the multifaceted sport. He discovered people like Ben Greenfield, Mark Sisson, Robb Wolf, and many others in the ancestral health and wellness space.

Over the next few years Ryan combined what he learned about ancestral health and training to optimize his performance as an athlete in obstacle course racing. Wanting to share what he learned, Ryan became a certified Primal Health Coach and then a certified Spartan SGX coach.

Through his health coaching business, he strives to help athletes achieve their own goals both on and off the race course using an ancestral model for health and exercise.

Ryan shares his coaching strategies and talks about how many of our current health issues are due to ancestral mismatching.

Back with another great resource for your OCR Training needs.  Summer is here and we are seeing more and more races which is a sight for sore eyes.  

In this episode I share some insight on how you can embrace the suck.  We hear things like this all the time, but reading a quote online or meme, often doesn't really help us at all.  So I share some strategies that will teach you how to improve the skill of suffering from the book The Brave Athlete.  If you find yourself backing down when things get hard, you will want to listen in.  

Ice baths and other water therapies have become more and more popular.  In my research review I share a study comparing 3 different water therapies and their impact on recovery.  Should you do cold, hot, both?  Listen in to see what the research says.  

Finally I have o
