Alex Hutchinson is the author of Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance.
In this episode, we discuss Alex’s book and the Philosophy, Science, and Art of endurance. What makes someone gas out in a UFC Fight? Why do teams look tired when trailing 2-0? Is it simply physiology, like VO2 Max? Is it psychology – mind over matter?
We discuss these ideas in the context of soccer and possible implications for training design and match performance.
