This week on the show I speak to Dan Plews about Funky Trunkies, protein metabolism and Chelsea Sodaro - who blew up the podium at the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon Championships in Kona in early October.

We talk about training and nutrition tactics, the data Dan used to assess progress, whether there were sex specific strategies used in his approach, how important recovery was and where Dan feels coaches and athletes could go wrong in the training journey.
It’s a pretty transparent conversation, and I think you’ll get real insight from how Dan trains his athletes, with tips for any endurance and high performing enthusiast.
