Matt Fitgerald is an acclaimed endurance sports and nutrition writer. He is the Author of the Best Selling books “Racing Weight” and “How Bad Do you Want It?” Matt is a Regular Columnist for magazines such as Competitor, Bicycle and Men’s Health Triathlete Men’s Journal, Outside Runners World and Women’s Health. Most recently Matt co-authored his latest book called “80/20 Triathlon” which is a further exploration of the theme of the best-selling 80/20 Running.

In this conversation Matt shares around the concept that if you want to run faster then why it is important to slow down. Through research analysis and then output into a version that is reader friendly in 80/20 running, Matt will explain why the secret of becoming a speedier runner is going slow most of the time. It is contradictory but as Matt explains in today’s conversation, it is a habit and a training principle that has withstood the ages and underpins the performance of the world’s best runners today. Simply put, running too hard Matt believes is the single most common and detrimental mistake that runners make.

In episode 137 of The Physical Performance Show I bring you a conversation that I had with featured performer Dan Smith - AUS Olympic Swimmer.  Dan’s story really is the epitome of the highs, lows and learnings of a sporting life.

Clint Kimmins went from being a childhood surfing professional prodigy to prison inmate before then morphing over to become a Professional Long Course Triathlete and also a big wave Surfer pursuing the World’s Big Wave Surfing Tour. In this conversation you’re going to hear Clint share around the highs, the lows and the learnings of his sporting career and pursuits to date. Clint takes us back to the early highs of his Junior Professional Surfing Career where he was touted as one of Australia’s hottest up and coming talents. Travelling the world through his teens and also into his early 20’s.

And then the crossroad, Clint shares very vividly around how he found himself sentenced to 18 months in prison with a minimum time of six months for an unlawful wounding incident which he was convicted of before the Courts.  Clint takes us through his time behind bars and how coming out on the other side has shaped him into the man he is today. He now completes competitively in Long Course Triathlon around the World with his ultimate goal being to compete in the professional category, the World’s Top 50 Athletes who start in Hawaii Ironman Professional Ranks of the World Triathlon Championships in Kona Hawaii.

During this conversation, Alex shares a story about when he first became aware of the power of the mind on performance with his own frustrations for years of trying to break the 4 minute mark for the 1500m. Alex shares how his experience in a track race then became the pursuit of determining just what role the brain and mind play in determining our physical performance and potential.

Alex takes us deep into the 10 years of research gathering and writing to produce what is now ENDURE - the New York Times Best Selling Publication. We take a journey back to Alex knocking on leading sport Scientist’s doors like Tim Noakes, observing the Comrades Marathon, pursuing the world’s best academics across the world including Australia, Alex’s own attempts at maximising his own performance and the science and the great stories that you will find inside Endure.
