Ep. 138: Carbohydrate periodization/Dr. Daya Grant

In this episode:

Cycling carbohydrates so that you train with low glycogen levels was once thought to be a viable strategy for getting real benefits in endurance performance. This strategy has come in to question with more recent scientific research. On this episode's medical mailbag we take a look and see what the latest data suggests about this concept. Plus, neuroscientist Dr. Daya Grant stops by to talk about the flow and clutch states; what they are and how you can get there in order to make the most of your training and racing.
