A Coach’s Perspective on Training and Nutrition


Cycling topics discussed this week

This week I interviewed Nate Dunn, Founder and Head Coach of Data Driven Athlete, to get his perspectives on several topics, including:

  • Why is data important in training and what effects can it have on the athlete (positive and negative)
  • What are some of the coaches’ biggest challenges when working with athletes
  • What are important things an athlete can do outside of the bike to improve performance
  • Intermittent fasting and other nutrition topics

Watch the video to find out the answers! Below are a few links we referred to during the live stream:
