Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Triathlon Podcast

Adults can play too - How to make workouts more fun * Darryl Edwards

January 26, 2022

Darryl Edwards is back in part 2 of our conversation about PrimalPlay.

Having laid the groundwork in Part 1 (Why working out isn’t working out that well) Darryl and I chat about his own daily habits. If you listened to part 1 you might have heard Darryl speak about how a health scare in his 30’s caused him to take a close look at how he was living his life, so we talk about:

  • Darryl’s approach to sleep including sleep hygiene and sleep tracking
  • Protein, hydration, and NO caffeine!
  • HIT, HIRT, and PHA training
  • Using your natural environment as a gym
  • Sprint training and scaring joggers in the park - seriously!
  • 3 top tips on how to include PrimalPlay into your own workout schedule
