SHOW NOTES

LionHeart Radio host, Rick Alexander, sits down with power, speed and endurance expert, Brian MacKenzie. Brian explains how to control various stresses on the body to vastly improve endurance performance. In addition, Brian also shares unique insight into:

• The process required to improve your distance running time;
• Why training at high intensity for a shorter distance is better than volume training;
• How the average working person should approach endurance training;
• The benefits cold and heat adaptation has on the body and metabolism;
• The importance of controlling all stresses on the body, including sleep and job stress;
• Breath training and why it helps people become CO2 tolerant, develop more red blood cells and creates a physiological adaptation;
• Why training masks should be used during recovery versus during the actual workout;
• The necessity of engaging in resistant breathing warm-ups for all conditioning workouts; and
• Brian’s new PSE Pro Program.
