- Even if you don’t have celiac disease, here’s a great reason to limit gluten.
- Good evidence that high intensity training with long rest periods for cycling beats out tempo efforts.
- Turns out a bit of protein during workout doesn’t “negate” effects of fasted workout. I recommend amino acid capsules.

Audio Question from Johnny @ 00:21:15
He really enjoys swimming (with his kids) but he gets red, itchy skin and sometimes even welts. Is there anything he can do about that? Also, should he be concerned about the amount of chlorine in the water in his shower?
~ In my response, I mention this podcast with Dr. David Getoff. And a full spectrum antioxidant like Lifeshotz. I recommend this shower head water filter for chlorine. And also this whole house water filtration unit.
Audio Question from Alexander @ 00:37:53
Is going on a triathlon camp for 8 days (swim, bike and run everyday). Do you have any advice on how to fuel for those 8 days so he doesn’t feel terrible (from overtraining) for a week afterwards. He has a history with overtraining and doesn’t want to experience that again.
~ In my response, I recommend my article on high volume fueling.
Audio Question from Bill @ 00:45:52
Have you done any research on the supplements “Resolve Advanced Pre-workout Anabolic Primer” offered by Dr. Di Pasquale?
Audio Question from John @ 00:50:27
Has lost 90lbs, stopped taking insulin and has done 20 triathlons. Is currently almost immobilized by spinal stenosis and nerve compression in the lower back. Has been looking into TENS units for pain relief. Could you comment on Dr. Ho’s TENS unit and his decompression belt.
Audio Question about MAT @ 00:56:58
She has been competing in Triathlons for 8 years (top age grouper). Has neuromas in her feet and has had trouble with her hamstrings, gluteus (especially during her long runs). Has done ART, massage and foam rolling but felt they were just bandaids. She is now using Muscular Activation Technique (MAT). What do you think of MAT? Is it worth the time and money?
Audio Question from Tim @ 01:04:12
Has started using Extreme Endurance and it really seemed to help with recovery and muscle soreness but his teeth have started to get discoloured. He went to the dentist and they thought that something in his diet was leaching magnesium and/or iron. The dentist figured that Time was likely getting enough of both of these minerals from his diet (kale, spinach, broccoli). Do you think it is possible that EE was leaching these minerals into his teeth?
