In-depth but practical
This show is fantastic. I really enjoy that they go deep into the science but follow that up with practical, useful ways to utilize it. Look forward to each episode!
Best quality nutrition show
I’m not a climber, but found your podcast through the trainer road forums. This is the most informative nutrition show I’ve found. Glad to see you’re back
High quality, scientifically strong advice
While the shows can sometimes feel like I’m back in a university lecture again, they are extremely informative, comprehensive, and well researched. Many people giving advice on the internet take one or two studies and base their opinions off of that. These guys understand how the balance of evidence in the entire field leads us to more nuanced and durable recommendations.
