Kenyan runners: Can't beat them? Maybe you can join them! Running expert, Dr. Jason Karp, comes back to the podcast to share some of the training tips that make Kenyan runners among the fastest in the world.

Unfortunately, it's also the training tip most of the Instagram famous and "fast" runners are not following. Dr. Karp shares a sadness that these runners are wasting their talent and could BQ (Boston Qualify) sooner and run faster if they stopped making this common training mistake. Are you making it? Find out and how to run faster with fewer injuries in 2020 whether you go all the way to Kenya or stay more local.

Research Based Tips for Improving Your Love Life and Losing Weight with Dr. Jason Karp

November 25, 2019

Struggling to find your fitness motivation with the holidays just around the corner? Dr. Jason Karp comes back to the show to discuss some of the research he's uncovered while writing his next two books. This information might be just what you need to hear to start or stick to your fitness routine this month. While Dr. Karp has been on the show before to talk about the benefits of running, we don't discuss our favorite sport for more than a few minutes this this episode (but ep 117 and 118 and tomorrow's episode with Dr. Karp have plenty of running focused tips for you!). Instead, Dr. Karp talks about scientific research that shows how exercising can improve your love life (parents-you may want some ear muffs for your kids if they are usually listeners!), the topic of one of his soon-to-be released books. And if you're starting to shop 2020 diets? You definitely don't want to miss the part of our chat where Jason shares more about the second book he's currently writing. It focuses on research from The National Weight Control Registry and will help you avoid wasting money on plans or products that don't work in the longterm. Had you hoped for some running talk from Jason? He'll be back tomorrow to talk running and share more about an exciting trip for runners, a training camp he's hosting in Kenya!
