Going primal as an endurance athlete will enable you to preserve your health as you pursue ambitious goals, race faster on less total training time, and finally lose the stubborn excess body fat seen on many endurance athletes who are locked in the carbohydrate paradigm. It’s time to reject the overly stressful conventional approach and become a fat-burning beast!

What's Inside?

Many devoted endurance athletes become fat, slow, tired, inflamed, sick, injured and ultimately burnt out by following the traditional “chronic cardio” training approach. Fixations with “consistency” in workout patterns, maintaining weekly mileage or misguided attempts to integrate intense cross training often lead to stress hormone imbalances, carbohydrate dependency, excess body fat and even elevated disease risks.

Primal Endurance provides a refreshing alternative to the struggle-and-suffer ethos of the endurance scene by inspiring you to: slow down (emphasize aerobic workouts), balance out (periodization, not “consistency”), chill out (be intuitive, not regimented), eat primally (escape carb dependency, become fat-adapted), properly integrate brief, high-intensity strength and sprint workouts (get fit fast!), blend complementary movement and lifestyle practices to manage stress and recover faster.*

Mark Sisson and Brad Kearns

Mark Sisson, author of the 2017 New York Times bestseller, The Keto Reset Diet, and de-facto leader of the primal/paleo lifestyle movement, and Brad Kearns, co-author of The Keto Reset Diet, expertly apply primal lifestyle principles to the unique challenge of endurance training and racing. Unlike the many instant and self-anointed experts who have descended upon the endurance scene in recent years, Sisson and his co-author/Primal Blueprint Publishing business partner Kearns boast a rich history in endurance sports. Sisson has a 2:18 marathon and 4th place Hawaii Ironman finish to his credit, has spearheaded triathlon’s global anti-doping program for the International Triathlon Union, and has coached/advised leading professional athletes, including Olympic triathlon gold and silver medalist Simon Whitfield and Tour de France cyclist Dave Zabriskie. Under Sisson’s guidance, Kearns won multiple national championships in duathlon and triathlon, and rose to a #3 world triathlon ranking in 1991.

The most outstanding book...

Primal Endurance is probably the most outstanding and mind-blowing book I have been exposed to during the past eight years dedicated to reading and compiling (theoretical+practical) information about self health care.

My interest in the subject started at age 60 when I radically changed eating habits according to Alain Delabos' chrononutrition, a (popular) French variant of LCHF diet taking into account chronobiology. The main visible effect was the loss of 25 kilos overweight and a feeling of reverse aging. I had associated this practice with some endurance training, spending 3 hours a day walking to/from office.

A few years later I adopted HIIT on a regular basis after reading from various sources. However I missed essential points to articulate strength training with endurance training. I mostly missed an understanding of moderate, age-adapted, cardio training. I even did Tabata sessions with a heart reaching 160 bpm which might have contributed to the breaking of atherome plaque resulting in the need for 4 stents to overcome chronic coronary syndrome. I should have been aware of Dr. Phil Maffetone's formula! More precisely, I needed an insight into the very precise and careful practice of sprinting as described in this book.

I enjoy reading Primal Endurance — a slow process since I am not familiar with the language. I like the detailed descriptions, warnings, summaries, testimonies, biodata, index… The editorial approach is close to my wife's book "Le Corps Accordé"…

I suspected for years...

For years I have been riding the fitness wave. I believe I have tried every possible style and protocol out there, but I always suspected that something was not right, something was not clicking. It should not be this difficult and draining to maintain a certain degree of fitness.

My suspicions were more than validated with "Primal Endurance". Let me back up a bit - my suspicions were really validated with "Primal Blueprint", which led me to "Primal Endurance" where it all came together.

It's difficult to describe the relief, calmness, wellness, energy and happiness I feel now, having left ALL the hype behind. I quit my gym membership - that was an unbelievably free and uplifting day - walking back home I had such a great feeling of lightness and speed. I had to stop by the park and run a few sprints - what a great feeling!

Having only been at it a few weeks now I can clearly see and say with resolve that I am a fully committed lifetime student of Primal fitness. If only I would have had this knowledge a long time ago!

Thank you...

So say lightning doesn't strike the same place twice.

A few years ago now I stumbled upon a podcast featuring Mark Sisson, I can be pretty sceptical at times but what he had to say struck somewhere deep in the heart of this Primal Beast igniting a long forgotten yet powerful instinct. The guy just made sense so I checked out the blog, did my own research, bought the book Primal Blueprint and gave the primal lifestyle a go.

Now 26kgs (4 stone) lighter-later I'm back taking part in life and competing with guys half my age and doing ok.

Ok...well ok may be acceptable for some but not this forty year old going through a one third life crisis. So just when I'm thinking there has to be a better way to train for a marathon BAAAAM Lightning or should I say Sisson strikes again.

Marks new masterpiece Primal Endurance hit that same spot right in the heart of this Fat Burning Beast. Once again it just makes sense so I'm putting it to the test, so far so good.

If only I knew then what I know now, or even just one of the dozens of coaches I've had over the years had known. Oh well at least FBB Jr will benefit from a different approach.

Yep lightning clearly can strike the same place twice, I guess not all of the things "they" say are true!

Thanks Mark, Brad and all of the Primal team for your life changing hard work.

Tony
