Dr. Dan Plews - Sports Scientist, World Champion Athlete, Coach, Founder of Endure IQ

In this episode of The Greg Bennett Show, Greg Bennett has an entertaining and insightful conversation with Dr. Dan Plews.


Dr. Dan Plews is a Doctor of exercise physiology, a world champion Ironman athlete and coach, and founder of endureIQ. His athletic accomplishments are extraordinary. He won the 2018 Age Group Ironman World Championship, was the 1st non-professional athlete to finish, and set an age-group world record of 8hrs 24mins. What’s incredible about that, is he did that whilst still working full-time as a sports scientist and coach.


He’s worked with professional Triathletes Tim Van Berkel, Jan Van Berkel, Caroline Steffen, and Terenzo Bozzone and the list goes on, and the New Zealand America’s Cup sailing team.


He's one of the world’s greatest minds in endurance sports. He has the practical, personal experience and he has the science.


In this episode, Dan describes everything there is to know about HRV (Heart Rate variability). He discusses LCHF (Low Carbohydrate, High "Healthy" Fat) diets. And he discusses how he coaches his athletes by first looking at the event and what it takes to be successful in that event, the individual and what their strengths and weaknesses are, and then what training best fits. Dan shares some entertaining stories of some of the training of the power athletes in the team Emirates New Zealand Americas Cup crew. And how a 4min time trial for men that are raw power... may have been too far.


This episode, had Greg laughing at times and then jotting down incredible knowledge at others.


Incredible insights and remarkable stories.
