In this episode, Dr. Huberman discusses endurance: our ability to perform effort over extended amounts of time. He describes the four kinds of endurance:
- Muscular endurance
- Long-duration (single-set) efforts
- The two kinds of high-intensity interval training (HIIT)
He discusses efficiency of effort and maximizing quality of effort and a hydration formula. He reviews how our heart literally gets stronger when we oxygenate muscles properly. Dr. Huberman also discusses motivation for long bouts of work and the visual physiological basis of the “extra gear” we all can leverage for effort. Finally, he review how accelerating as we fatigue can allow us to access untapped energetic resources.
