What is a Hybrid Athlete? A hybrid athlete is a unique breed who can excel simultaneously in both strength and endurance activities.
Alex Viada has revolutionized this type of concurrent training, as he has squatted and deadlifted over 700 pounds raw while also running a sub 4:30 mile and competing in ultra-marathons and triathlons. He’s refined his methods from working with hundreds of athletes in all disciplines, from strongmen who want to run half marathons, to members of the Special Forces, to the countless athletes who just want to be able to deadlift 500-600 pounds and run a 5:00 mile.
Even if you specialize in strength sports with no interest in competing in an endurance event, this book is an invaluable resource that will teach you how to improve your work capacity so you can train harder while remaining fresher to make faster strength gains.
In Hybrid Athlete, Alex shares with you the training concepts that make this rare combination of physical abilities possible and helps you map out a strategy for you to maximize your own strength and endurance.
