Ep. 28 Alex Hutchinson

Alex Hutchinson is a Canadian author and journalist who started out in physics—he earned a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge, ran middle-distances for the Canadian national team, and in 2011 penned the wonderfully useful book, “Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights?” In the second podcast recorded outside of the Dissect studio Mark sat down with Alex after they attended a seminar exploring the Role of Collective Effects in Individual and Team Performance to discuss the concept of “cognitive drafting”, fat adaptation, hydration, the glamorous lifestyle of a journalist, long treks, long climbs, and his most recent book titled, “Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance.”
