Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Podcast

Simon Ward and Toby Baxendale part 2

January 9, 2018

Simon chats with Toby Baxendale in part 2 of this conversation where Toby finally reveals the background to his 421 watt, 20 minute time trial.  Among many subjects they talk about: 

  • The benefits of polarised training for recovery and overall performance benefits
  • How a lower carb/high fat approach to nutrition led to an unexpected weight loss with no loss of performance
  • Why “nose breathing” helps you to control intensity and avoid too much threshold training
  • The moment when Toby thought I had gone mad
  • Why improvements in lifestyle were more important than 421 watts
  • What happened when Toby went “keto” for a 70.3 triathlon
