The premise of the Purple Patch podcast is all about performance and helping you enhance your performance journey to become the best that you can be in sport and in life.
As the performance engines rev up in 2021, it is more vital than ever to educate and empower all human beings to reach their athletic potential because, through the lens of athletic potential, you reach your human potential.
For the next two weeks, Matt features a little expert “speed dating” with Alex Hutchinson who is a leading researcher on everything cutting-edge in the world of performance.
Hutchinson is a science journalist who writes about fitness, health, and endurance sports for Outside magazine in his Sweat Science columns. His most recent book is the New York Times bestseller Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance. Before becoming a journalist, he worked as a post-doctoral physicist for the U.S. National Security Agency, and competed for the Canadian national team in track, cross-country, and mountain running.
In today’s quick-hit series of discussions, Matt and Alex dig into the first two Purple Patch Pillars of Performance: Training and Nutrition.
What are their thoughts and what does the research show about things like:
The Coach-Athlete Relationship
Heart Rate Variability
Power Meters for Running
Training Mistakes of Aging Athletes
Cross-Training and HIIT Training
…And this is all just in Part One of the conversations with performance expert, researcher, author and athlete, Alex Hutchinson.
