Well I am in between trips so I wanted to get an episode out before I check out on vacation. As usually I have tons of good info to help you train for your next OCR.
First up in the Inside Mike's Mind segment, I talk about one of my favorite subjects, Physiology. I know not everyone loves learning how the body responds to exercise so I did my best to keep it simple. But understanding your own physiology helps you create way better workout programs. This was the basis behind my book, Fuel and Fire. I specifically dive into how understanding how your body responds to exercise can help you program to be a better and faster runner.
In my research review I discuss a new study out on training to failure. I have discussed this topic before, but this study compared high load versus low load training to failure or not to failure. See who won out for strength and muscle size.
And finally in my bonus section I discuss my other favorite topic, Recovery. Recovery is a pretty broad term so I wanted to take a deeper dive on why it is so important. I discuss what fatigue is and the different types of fatigue you may experience. When you understand the type of fatigue you are suffering from you can choose the best recovery method to match that.
All this and more in today episode.
