How to be Both Strong and Fast: Nick Bare, the Ultimate Hybrid Athlete

Have you ever thought that you can’t be both strong and fast at the same time?

Well, Nick Bare refuses to believe so and it’s why many consider him the ultimate hybrid athlete. With a body builder’s physique and the ability to run ultras and train for sub 3 marathons at the same time - I don’t think that’s hyperbole.

In this episode, Nick shares his nutrition and training strategies so you can learn how to become a more hybrid athlete yourself.

You’ll learn…

  • How Nick balances his nutrition for both running and maintaining muscle
  • How he specializes his training so his runs don’t catabolize his strength gains
  • How to alter your training if you want to maximize your time in both the gym on the roads.
