Chris McCormack interviews Greg Bennett - 2020 Podcast Recap, Greg's Journey
It’s been one year of the Greg Bennett Show, formally Be with Champions. And Greg has had the privilege to have the most wonderful conversations, with the world’s greatest athletes, coaches, doctors, entertainers, and entrepreneurs. It's simply incredible that these incredible people have been willing to come on the show and chat. Some Greg has known but many he's only come to know from these conversations. Greg is tremendously grateful to all of them for coming on and for you for listening and supporting the show. Today’s episode is a little different, Greg is joined by a guest host, in fact, he'll ask most of the questions, former professional athlete and multiple world champion, now businessman and entrepreneur Chris McCormack. Chris like Greg is passionate about all sports and high performance. He is the CEO of the Mana sports and entertainment group, Co-founder of the Superleague Triathlon series, the President of the Bahrain 13 endurance team. He was on episode 8 of the show and an episode you really should go check out. In this episode, Greg and Chris discuss this podcast, review the year and many of the episodes, and then due to several requests, look at Greg's journey and process into the world of endurance sport and why he's doing what he's doing. Greg discusses some of the highlights of the episodes in year 1, and who he'd love to get on the show, and where he'd like the show to go. Greg describes his journey in the sport and gradually finding his strengths and taking control of his life. Greg and Chris conclude by discussing the fundamentals of high performance. Together they share many stories of the past and their shared journeys.

146: Cardiovascular Drift, with Dr. Ed Coyle
If you’ve listened to Fast Talk for a while, you’ve likely heard us mention “cardiac drift” or “decoupling” in several episodes. It's a favorite topic of Coach Connor's. The terms refer to cardiovascular drift, which is a "drifting" in heart rate and stroke volume over time. On the bike, we measure it by looking at a rise in heart rate relative to power. Many causes have been theorized including dehydration, muscle damage, cutaneous blood flow, and mitochondrial efficiency.     We’re very excited to have as our featured guest today Dr. Ed Coyle, the University of Texas exercise physiology researcher who published the definitive articles on cardiovascular drift in the 1990s. In that research, Coyle, who is also the director of the Human Performance Laboratory at the university, and his colleagues demonstrated that even when hydration is maintained, CV drift can be experienced. This increase in heart rate reduces the time the heart has to fill with blood, and this is the main reason for a drop in stroke volume, or the amount of blood pushed out by the heart with each beat.    The drop in stroke volume is a hallmark of CV drift, and historically it has been attributed to blood pooling in the skin and less blood returning to the heart. Coyle and his team found no evidence that blood flow to skin is increased or that venous return is compromised.    In a practical sense, when a person becomes dehydrated during prolonged exercise, they also get hotter and experience a greater increase in heart rate and a lower cardiac output and circulation of blood: CV drift. The exercise becomes very hard when it should not be hard at all. Competitive cyclists interpret this to mean they are getting a “better workout” because it’s more stressful. It certainly is more stressful, but that type of cardiovascular drift is a negative stress. It does more harm than good.    We’ll dive into all of this and much more today on Fast Talk, as we hear from Dr. Coyle and a host of other incredible guests who share their thoughts on cardiovascular drift.  Now, let's make you fast!    Learn more about your ad choices.
