Michael Andrew, Keto and Race Pace

The lightning rod of international swimming, Michael Andrew, is going on a ketogenic diet. To discuss this startling development, I brought on keto dieter (and race pace trainer) Shawn Klosterman along with resident nerd Trever Gray to hash it out.

We discussed the synergy between the two, and some of the science behind it (and not behind it):


Trever Gray on High School, PAC-12s and Oregon St

The Swim Brief returns with Trever Gray to talk about a smorgasbord of topics. First Trever and I get to the follow up on our respective high school seasons before turning to the big meet, PAC-12s, that we got to watch this past weekend.

Finally we talk about the recent decision made to cut Oregon State’s program that I have already shared some personal feelings on.

Chris, Sarah and Trever

Today I return with Trever Gray and Sarah Ehekircher, to follow up on our podcast of last week. If you want to read more from Trever go here. If you want to hear more from Sarah her blog is here and she’s active on twitter.

Both Trever and Sarah have new research to bring to the fray this week. We turn from there to a discussion of Steve Lochte and Swimswam beginning to report on interim Safe Sport suspensions. Finally. we discuss Steve Penny, the former head of USA Gymnastics, getting arrested this past week and I go on an extended rant about Tom Brokaw. Enjoy.




Nerd Alert: Supplements

Today I am joined once again by Trever Gray. Trever schools me on a topic that I don't that much about, but should know more: supplements.

We go through the Madisyn Cox case and talk about some of the reasons people take supplements, as well as some of the free resources that are out there for making more informed decisions.
