Dr. Sweat Science is Back With Hits & Misses of the Year

alex_hutchinsonSports science research

We’re very glad to have “Dr. Sweat Science” back on the show. Alex Hutchison has a PhD in physics, a passion for running and an intense calling to comb through the constant flow of sports science research to highlight the good, the bad and the ugly.

Alex writes a highly engaging and practical blog for Runner’s World and the Jockology column on fitness and exercise for the Globe and Mail in Toronto, where he is based.

One point of clarification – about half-way through this interview we’re talking about protein supplementation. Alex’s preferred type is whey protein rather than casein protein.

Alex is also the author of the highly useful compendium “Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights?”
