The Extramilest Podcast


Sep 16, 2017

Dr. Phil Maffetone is a researcher and author in the field of nutrition, exercise, sports medicine, and biofeedback. He has written over 20 books including my favorite one The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing.

In this video Dr. Phil Maffetone and I discuss the fundamentals of his approach to training, nutrition and recovery.

We also dive into very specific subjects, like learning how to listen to different signals from your body, why many doctors and the media recommend food that’s not good for you and how incredibly important rest and sleep is for a healthy athlete. I learned a lot of new things in this podcast and I hope you will as well, enjoy!
