Andy Magness - Pushing the Limit

September 4th, 2015

Episode 63 of 127 episodes

Andy Magness is a husband, father, recreational philosopher, occasional adventurer, part-time athlete, race director, youth philanthropist, and author. Andy is a rock climber turned ultra endurance fanatic and pushes his mind and body to it'slimits. I don't think he'll mind me saying that I think he's borderline crazy as illustrated and reinforced by his impressiveRace Resume. To prepare for this podcast, I set aside some time to read through his website and resources. I was so impressed with hisUltra Mental Bookthat I devoured it one sitting. I thought it was beautifully written, funny, authentic and very practical. Andy has an MA in physics, and due to a growing list of responsibilities, he decided to put his scientific brain to work to figure out how he could continue to participate in adventure races whilst significantlyreducing his training volume. Andy stumbled across HIIT (high intensity interval training) and found that he could train for 1-3 hours a week (typically just 1 hour a week!) and reduce his risk of injury,improvehis performance and make more time for his other responsibilities and past times. Andy's story and race performances are a powerful testimony for the efficacy of high intensity training and how it can be applied to prevent injury, increase training efficiency, and get better results. It's refreshing to hear about the productive application of HIT outside the world of body building. Andy's work has shown that appropriatephysical conditioning(like HIT or HIIT) canserve as the foundational training program for manyathletic pursuits. We cover A LOT, including: How Andy went from training 15+ hours to 1 hour per week and improved his performance. What 20% of mental exercises Andy uses for maximum benefit. Is the will power needed for ultra endurance races hard wired or can it be learned? The importance of training specificity to the actual competition. How to train your cardiovascular system without putting in 10, 20, 30 training hours per week. How to significantly reduce the risk of injury when training for ultra endurance events/any competition. The different diets recommended for ultra endurance. The hardest event and experience that Andy has ever been through (including a near death experience that gave him a perspective that would serve him for years to come). The best way to prepare for a 12 km obstacle race for optimal performance. This episode is sponsored byHituni.com, providers of the best online courses in high intensity training.
