Matthew Russell talks Extreme Endurance, Ironman World Champs, and Soma
Recently I got the chance to visit with xendurance athlete Matthew Russell.
Matthew was the third fastest American at the Ironman World Champs in Kona, HI. He said, in addition to a very smart training schedule he attributes a lot of his success this year to taking Extreme Endurance. He was able to recover quicker and stack harder workouts together.
He has been in Arizona for the past couple weeks training and racing. He is getting ready for Ironman Arizona Nov 20th. He recently won the Soma triathlon in commanding fashion.
Matthew has also been working with the team at Faster http://www.ride-faster.com/ to get the position on his bike dialed in. He has also been able to take advantage of the metabolic testing, recovery services and he will soon jump into the wind tunnel. He will use the wind tunnel to evaluate his existing aerodynamic drag and how his position and equipment change his drag. It will also incorporate biomechanical, power and respiratory measurement tools to ensure that his aerodynamics don’t compromise his performance. We are excited to review all the data he receives from faster.
