Since starting NBT, I’ve noticed a growing gap between what I'm doing (lots of cycling) and what I need to be doing for longevity (strength training). This year then, I plan to focus more on strength. The trouble is, I've no clue what I'm doing! Luckily, I was able to hire Dr Mike T Nelson, PhD as my strength and conditioning coach.
Sign up for our Highlights email and every week we’ll send you a short (but sweet) email containing the following:
You should listen to this interview to learn why all athletes, including endurance athletes, should be strength training. I started Dr Mike's programme about six weeks before recording which meant I had lots of questions and honest feedback.
