Strength Chat 53: Alex Viada
This week's guest is Alex Viada, the founder and mastermind behind Complete Human Performance. Alex is a lifelong athlete and the only person known to have ever deadlifted over 700 pounds within a week of running a 50 mile ultra-marathon. (This record is not official, but is most likely accurate as to date he’s just fairly certain nobody else has bothered to try it.) Alex has coached hundreds of athletes over a 13 year (to date) career, in many sports ranging from bodybuilding to ultra running to cycling to powerlifting.
On today's episode we discuss Alex's new book - The Hybrid Athlete - among other topics including:
- energy systems
- maximum recoverable volume
- improving training capacity for the strength athlete
- strength for the endurance athlete.
