Fully Loaded Training and Recovery Book that May Change Your Life
Reviewed in the United States on September 10, 2017
There is so much freaking information in this book! I've read many endurance training/performance books and this is what I've been missing. I'm currently reading this book a second time and am realizing I missed a few things the first time through it. There is just so much information, that it's difficult to retain with just one read. If you are looking for the book that provides structured training for your specific sport, this isn't that book. This is the book that goes with that book.
The core of this book is about maximizing performance without destroying your body. It has helped me find the balance between performance, health and longevity, to the point that I consider it life changing. If you are a hard charging endurance athlete, you may read some things that you don't want to hear, but don't fear Ben provides an endless supply of methods and biohacks for minimizing the damage while maximizing performance.
If you are looking for every possible thing that you can do to maximize performance, recovery, and health, this is a book for you. There is just so many biohacks and methods in this book that it will be difficult to implement them all. The book gives you the tools so you can pick and choose what works best for you.
When it comes to new Science, newly released studies, or new hacks, Ben leaves no stone unturned and doesn't hesitate getting out on the fringe. This book has been out a couple of years and new information is continuously coming out validating many of the training and recovery methods laid out in the book. I hope and expect to see many revisions to this book since knowledge on this subject is continuously evolving.
This is a book that will always stay within close reach to be used as a reference. I so wish that I had this book 10 years ago!!!
Thank you Ben for all the research and work that went into this book!
