Welcome to Fitter Radio.

Hosted by Coach Bevan McKinnon & Nutritionist Mikki Williden.

Jun 8, 2014

Bev talks about the importance of the kick in freestyle swimming.  What's its purpose and do we really need to kick?  See the show notes for YouTube footage of some useful drills and links to some of the toys you can use.  BCAA's – Branch Chain Amino Acids – Mikki tells us about their usefulness in recovery for endurance exercise and as a fuel for training.  Our questions from listeners this week are around LCHF and metabolic efficiency.  We interview Paul Westwood.  Paul works as Physiotherapist to Joel Filliol's Olympic triathlon squad working with such names as Mario Mola, Richard Murray, Kyle Jones and Sarah Groff.  Paul gives us an insight into life in the 'fast lane'!
