      Отличная книга. Авторы, в прошлом триатлет и марафонец мирового уровня, убеждают в новом, интуитивном подходе к планированию тренировок. Основные принципы в питании - диета, близкая к палое-протоколу, то есть низкоуглеводная и избегающая мучного и сладкого, заставляющая ор [...]

    • Becky says:

      I read this hoping for help in training for a rim to rim Grand Canyon hike. This book really is for endurance athletes. There wasn't too much overly useful for me as an average person who follows a fairly primal lifestyle. I wish I had bought it sooner because with only 12 weeks until my hike I wasn't willing to spend 8 weeks only in my aerobic zone. That limited me to just walking about 17 minute flat miles to keep my heart rate in the proper range. I believe it makes sense and may try this aft [...]

    • Paul King says:

      Too repetitive. Could have been condensed to 1/4 of its size.

    • Jack Oughton says:

      This made me re-evaluate a few things and has given me a lot of things to test in my own training.

    • Michellerun says:

      Okay information presented in a complicated way. Not sure why he trys to use big words and complicated jargon. Makes for a difficult read. He's quite full of himself and comes across arrogant. Plus, this isn't a book for women athletes. It is geared towards men. In my own opinion

    • Andreas says:

      This book advocates to go slow to go faster based on the idea that when you teach your body to burn fat for energy (instead of relying on carbohydrates mostly), you will have a huge pool available for all kind of activities. It's definitely an intriguing idea with some impressive showcases. I am not in the position to argue if it's right or wrong, and I won't judge the proposed paleo diet. The book makes reasonable claims and it's up to the reader to try it out. There is a lot of enthusiasm and [...]

    • David says:

      Rating a book about a fitness program right after reading is definitely futile. How can you know if it even works? I rank this 4 stars because (1) it inspires me to start running again, (2) the heart-monitored low level aerobic step 1 is already MUCH more enjoyable and less taxing than any previous attempt to run for fitness, (3) it sounds promising and (4) I already know and have experienced the benefits that come from the rest of the Primal Blueprint program of Mark Sisson. I have faith that t [...]

      I approached this book with extreme interest as I find the Sissons material engrossing and I'm a long-standing fan of Paleo nutrition, embarking on a challenging 65th year of 12 marathons.The book does not disappoint, providing a detailed background to the science of endurance training on a low-carb programme and is full of hugely useful information on every other aspect of lifestyle for those of us who refuse to get old!Cracking book - really enjoyed it and would recommend.

    • Bram says:

      Great book about how one can improve his lifestyle to get to a healthier, more durable athletic lifestyle. Combines a lot of proven methods and techniques and convinces me to at least think about eating less carbohydrates, decrease training intensity and increase strength training. The only downside: it needs a lot of words to do so :)

    • Hariharan Ragunathan says:

      Must read for all those folks training for endurance sports to not kill themselves in over training, or binge on foods that add to the stress. If you follow Marks's dailly apple blog, you pretty much know most of the stuff covered. But he does cover some additional Biking/running/swimming specific recommendations. A good followup book to Phil Mafettone's Big book on endurance training.

    • Matthew Thyer says:

      I'm down more than 10 pounds since the beginning of September. I'm running more and feeling better than I have in a long while and I attribute it much to the massive change in diet this program fostered.

    • Maura says:

      Helpful read regarding lifestyle changes a lot of us could make to improve our health. I think there is some missing information regarding the relationship of cancer and some other diseases to high meat consumption, however.

    • Cortney says:

      This is an informative book on attempting primal training. However, he has a podcast that I listen to weekly and I get more out of that than the book, so I'd do that rather than buy his book.

    • Melvin Hazeleger says:

      Read the summaries at the end of every chapter.I'm familiar with Mark Sisson's philosophy on exercise.Seems like a good reference book.

    • Will G says:

      Ketone based endurance training. Seems like the pendulum is swinging back towards big base miles.

    • Laura says:

      Interesting but repetitive. Didn't need to read the whole thing to get the gist.

    • Julie says:

      Train smarter, not harder. Doing a LOT less with give you a LOT more!

    • Julie says:

      I came at this book all wrong, having already destroyed my body at age 40 to complete an Ironman using conventional training “wisdom” and having no real interest, at 46, in getting back into endurance sports. But I found this approach fascinating and extremely convincing—so much so that it made me want to dust off my bike. I think all athletes of all stripes should read this. And, incidentally, I also think Mark Sisson should hire me to be his editor and book designer.

    • Ragan Sutterfield says:

      This is one of the best books I've read about endurance training from a perspective seeking holistic health. I've long followed Sisson's blog, but found this book full of challenging and surprising insights. If you're interested in pursuing any athletic goal that requires some endurance from a half-marathon to an Ironman I highly recommend this book as your guide.

    • Ricardo says:

      First, I couldn't finish it. Heck, I couldn't even get that far into it. If you feel that doesn't qualify me to review it, please stop reading now.So, they say in no uncertain terms they won't be presenting the science in this book. So, that's cool if you want to take their 'radical,' 'new' approach on faith, but if I'm going to consider really changing my training, I'd like some science to back it up. Yes, I realize a lot of people in Sisson's (and the paleo community's camp) have conflicting f [...]

    • Kim says:

      WOW! This one definitely belongs in the "Game Changer" category. I am relatively new to long racing in the endurance world, and going from sprints to even a half ironman distance did a whammy on my waistline. Who knew there were other ways to train long (pretty much year round) without carb-loading. While I have learned that my body definitely needs some carbs for 12 miles of running and anything more than 30 miles on the bike, this is a great foundation to training my body to burn more protein/ [...]

    • Michael Stockdale says:

      Primal Endurance is a beautiful book; every feature about it just grabs your attention. But what is inside is what counts: in a comfortable, conversational style, the reader is taken through the process of becoming active and involved in life as a participant instead of a spectator. Sisson and Kearns take experience—theirs and others—mix in a lot of good science, and create a recipe for success. Whether interested in just doing more than the sedentary routines we tend to fall into or desirin [...]

    • Leftbanker says:

      I discovered this book at a perfect time for me. I am in the doldrums as far as my training goes and I can't seem to drop the ten pounds I really need to drop yet I feel like I have been working really hard this spring on the bike and also in my upper body strength training. After two days and five and a half hours on the bike I hope to notice a difference. I realize that two days isn't enough but I think I will be able to tell if this is for me. I also went low on carbs and plan to stick to tha [...]

    • Laura Schubert says:

      Mark Sisson turns the conventional wisdom of training for endurance events on its head. Over the years I'd found myself getting slower and fatter despite training harder and longer. I'd read Phil Maffetone's work and thought I understood the basic principles of low heart rate training to build aerobic base, but my attempts to train with a heart rate monitor ended in frustration. Primal Endurance provided a compelling enough argument to push me toward re-evaluating my training process and priorit [...]

    • Scott Simon says:

      Good book, but spoke about the principles at a high-level and lacked the detailed, practical examples, lists, etc. to apply to your daily life. I feel like I need to buy another book that gives me lists of specific foods to include in my diet (granted, this book included some, but they were relatively small/short lists). Also, the principles were repeated over and over again without much new information.

    • Guilherme Reis says:

      Informações sensatas para qualquer nível de atividadeO livro mostra como seguir uma vida ativa, mantendo a saúde como meta tanto para o amador como para o profissional. Mark Sisson tem uma visão muito sensata de saúde e estilo de vida.

    • Javier says:

      it gives you a new approach in subjects such us endurance training and primal diet. Really recommendable if you are stuck since Mark Sisson gives a few good advices and talk about his personal experience.

    • Leron Lehman says:

      Really enjoyed it. Biggest take away for me was to spend less time in the black hole with my workouts. make the lighter days longer and easier and make the hard days harder and shorter. Build the aerobic base by keeping the heart rate below 180 - age for most workouts.

    • Jim Allen says:

      Nice synthesisI really liked the way this book pulled a lot of threads together for the endurance athlete, particularly nutrition, strength training, and sprinting. There was just the right amount of science backing up the authors' recommendations.

    • Cyndi says:

      There was some interesting information, but I think it would have benefited from an editor that knew nothing of what the subject. Mark or Brad's mom may have been too informed to notice that some explanations of things were lacking.
