Dig deeper and go farther…

What part of the body determines if an athlete can dig deeper, go farther, push harder, or climb higher? An elite distance runner strives to find out, exploring the cutting-edge science of human endurance. His findings might surprise you.

Описание

Featuring a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell

Writing from both the cutting edge of scientific discovery and the front-lines of elite athletic performance, National Magazine Award-winning science journalist Alex Hutchinson presents a revolutionary account of the dynamic and controversial new science of endurance.

The capacity to endure is perhaps the key trait that separates champions and determines great performance in any field—from a 100-meter sprint to a 100-mile ultramarathon, from summiting Everest to acing finals. But what if everything we've been taught about endurance was wrong? What if we all have more potential than we think to go farther, push harder, and achieve more?

Blending cutting-edge science and gripping storytelling in the vein of Malcolm Gladwell—who forewords the book—Hutchinson reveals that a wave of paradigm-altering research over the past decade suggests that the seemingly physical barriers you encounter are mediated as much by your brain as by your body. But it's not "all in your head." For each of the physical limits that Hutchinson explores—pain, muscle, oxygen, heat, thirst, fuel—he carefully disentangles the delicate interplay of mind and muscle by telling the riveting stories of men and women who've approached (and sometimes surpassed) their own ultimate limits.

As the longtime "Sweat Science" columnist for Outside and Runner's World as well as a frequent contributor to the New Yorker and New York Times, Hutchinson draws on his background as a former national-team long-distance runner and Cambridge-trained physicist. But the lessons he draws from traveling to labs around the world and trying out new endurance-boosting techniques like electric brain stimulation and brain endurance training are surprisingly universal. Endurance, he writes, is "the struggle to continue against a mounting desire to stop"—and we're always capable of pushing a little farther.

  • (5/5)
    Wow, comprehensive book of endurance training. A bible for exercise enthusiasts everywhere.
  • (5/5)
    Love the mix of psychology, nutritional science, and physiology. Would def read this again.
  • (4/5)
    I got hold of this book because race walkers, including Canadian Evan Dunfee and Australian Jared Tallent, participated in a nutrition experiment, which was carb-free. This a good book on research into human performance, particularly sports. What food should se eat?, How do we train, intervals, routine? What are the limits of exertion and are they stretchable? What is the oxygen consumption. What does the brain think? What are our attitudes?
  • (5/5)
    Great book about mental perception and all the research that goes into athletes who push the limits.
