Stretching the Limits of Human Performance With Michael Joyner

Exercise Physiology; Blood & Breathing Expert

This week we have one of world’s leading experts on human performance and exercise physiology. Dr Michael Joyner is with us to talk about endurance training, muscle growth, recovery, you name it. He’s based at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, researching among many topics blood flow during exercise, glucose regulation and the physiology of elite athletes.

Dr. Joyner is a keen sportsman himself, particularly triathlon and can quite possibly lay claim to being the fastest ever marathoner on a height-adjusted basis. Measuring 6’4″, he posted a personal best of 2:25 hours.
