Mile High Endurance Podcast

Mile High Endurance is recorded in the Rocky Mountain front range area in Denver, Colorado. 55 miles to the north is the triathlon 'Mecca' of Boulder, home of some of the most prominent pros in triathlon and related sports. 56 miles to the south is the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. The 110 mile stretch between Boulder and Colorado Springs is one of the fittest and athletic populated areas in the world. I share these statistics, not so much to brag but to give you the listener context for what the culture and vibe is here in the Mile High area. ​The objective of the Mile High Tri podcast is to connect you to the triathlon community and empower you to achieve your triathlon and fitness goals. Each month we will take subjects that you are interested in and connect your interests with news, expert interviews, and information about services and products in a way that inform your decisions to achieve your full potential in the sport.

Our interview today is with Craig Dinkel. Craig is a sprint freestyle and fly swimmer, who trained and competed for years on a world-class level.  He is a 2 time qualifier for Olympic Trials, earned 23 All-Americans,  and set 4 NCAA records while at Cal State.  Craig talks about what it takes to train and compete at that level and a product that I'm excited to take a closer look at a safe way to get a biological edge with BioTropicLabs.

Before we get into the interview, let's catch up with Bill and Khem.

Overload progression and how to make sure you aren't spinning your wheels

  • Overloading - Progressive overload should be a fundamental characteristic of resistance training programs directed at the development of neuromuscular capabilities and athletic performance.
  • The body and it’s tissues only adapt when it is he body and it’s tissues only adapt when it is exposed to stresses beyond it’s normal homeostatic range - Dr. Carwyn Sharp (#81)
  • Overload refers to providing a greater stimulus or intensity in a resistance training program than an athlete is accustom.
  • Progression refers to systemic planning and change. The intensity of a resistance training program must become progressively greater in order for an athlete to continue to improve.
