On Episode 14 we have Christ Newport of Everyday Athlete Matters. Chris is a triathlete, coach, and a registered dietician. We are going to talk about fueling, recovery, and hydration.
How did you get your start in running and endurance sports?
You went through Team In Training as a coach or participant?
So what type of athletes are you training? What is the demographic of your athlete?
You do a lot with sports nutrition. What are the biggest mistakes you see endurance athlete make?
Great breakdown on hydration, but if you had someone who could not afford to get tested, what general hydration advice would you have?
There is a common formula for hydration, take body weight in pounds, divide in half and that is a general amount of ounces you should be drinking a day. Do you teach that formula?
You say you work with everyday athletes so are there differences for what a housewife who loves to run and is trying to run a slightly better 5k should be eating and how they should be eating compared to what someone training for a 10-hour ironman or a 3-hour marathon should be doing?
Do you have any thoughts on carb loading vs fat burning for varying distances such as 5k and marathon?
For fat burning, what do you recommend people do to enhance their fat burning ability?
Let’s talk pre-exercise eating on training days. The housewife wakes up at 5am to get in her 45-minute run, what should she be eating before her run?
What about post race. I tell my high school kids that milk is always great because it has both whey and casein, what do you recommend for recovery post-workout?
I noticed on your website you do Sweat and metabolic testing. Can you tell us how that is and what you are finding out about athletes your testing?
With people you are testing are you finding out any common findings such as are you finding most people are taking in to many carbs or anything like that?
You mentioned everyday athlete, are any of them internet only clients or are you meeting them all in person?
How are you using final surge with your clients and what are you tracking with them?
If someone wants to reach you and find out more about you and your services, how can they get a hold of you.
