Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Triathlon Podcast

Tying up loose ends * Brad Kearns, part 2

September 22, 2021

This week Brad Kearns is back in the hot seat as I had so much to ask him during our last conversation just a few weeks ago (you can listen to that podcast from August 4th HERE).

Specifically, I wanted to clarify questions I had about his book Two Meals a Day, chat more about the value of High Intensity Repeat Training (H.I.R.T) vs HIT training, and also take a deep dive into Brad's own daily routines and habits. 

Brad is always good value, and we got into it quickly as we chatted about:

  • Two Meals a Day = does this work for females and high volume endurance athletes?
  • Why you have to find a diet that works for you
  • Why you need to pick the right moment to start a Keto diet
  • Eating as much food as possible without gaining weight
  • Does H.I.R.T. training work for endurance athletes?
  • Brad’s morning routine and his 5-year streak without missing a day of practice
  • Strength training - micro workouts and why you should never be sore

You can find Brad on all of the usual social media channels. Start with his website HERE.

You can find all of his other social media links RIGHT HERE

Brad also has his own B.Rad podcast which you can find HERE

These are some of the books that Brad has written, and a book he's recommended:
