The Consummate Athlete Podcast Guide to Training Like Wonder Woman

Resident comic nerd Molly here! So, I went to see Wonder Woman last night, and naturally, as someone who loves the whole Consummate Athlete lifestyle, it got me super motivated to train. And that led to thinking about how to train like Wonder Woman. I started flashing back to some of the rad guests we’ve had on the show, and thinking about which ones would be the most relevant, and get me the closest to Wonder Woman-levels of fitness and skill.

(If you haven’t seen it, watch the trailer here!)

Pretty rad, right? So, let’s talk about training like a superhero, and get inspired!

How to Parkour with Adam McClellan

Of course, I have to open with Parkour. All the crazy free-running that happens in that movie immediately made me think of Adam and the couple of sessions that I’ve had with him, and some of the great advice he’s given on the show!

Peak Performance with Steve Magness & Brad Stulberg

These guys are brilliant, and so is their book. (Get a copy here.) While they might not teach any Wonder Woman-specific skills, if you’re doing any kind of training while mixing it with regular life (or, in her case, trying to stop a war and learning about the world of man… I’ll stop being a nerd now, I promise), this is a good one to listen to.

How to Start Obstacle Course Racing with Lindsay Webster

I kind of think Lindsay might actually *be* Wonder Woman, to be honest. Schlepping heavy weights like they’re nothing, bouncing over obstacles, racing for hours on end… Yeah, sounds about right. This was a super fun episode to record, and even more fun for me to re-listen to so I can steal some leaping-buildings-in-a-single-bound advice.

(Want a guy’s perspective? It’s also worth listening to our earlier episode with her husband,  OCR World Champ with Ryan Atkins!)

How to Run a Marathon with Aimee Shilling

Hey, you don’t get to comic hero level without an endurance base, and Shilling is the woman to talk to about that, since her marathon-running schedule is absolutely insane.

Self-Defense & Awareness with Krav Maga with Dan Gador

Those fight scenes don’t just happen, they take a ton of work. I personally loved this episode—and am so intrigued by Krav Maga—because it combines the stuff I was interested in with MMA with a bit more of a self-defense “I can actually kick your ass” side. And the basis isn’t kicking ass, it’s being aware of your environment. Not unlike Parkour, honestly.

How to Get Strong with Power Lifting with Robert Herbst

I mean, that tank didn’t lift itself.

How to Swim with Total Immersion Swimming

One of the early scenes is Diana saving Steve Trevor from the ocean. Now, I’m a good swimmer and this episode was a really interesting one for new swimmers, but I’m not sure I could pull a guy out of a plane 50 feet underwater. But next time I’m in the pool, I might try to touch the bottom in the deep end. Just for funsies.

Erin Taylor on Why You Need Yoga in Your Life and How to Hit Reset

Watching some of the fight scenes, especially the ones where the Amazons are just practicing, made me feel super self-conscious about my extreme lack of flexibility. Erin Taylor’s Hit Reset and Jasyoga is perfect because it’s yoga tailored to those of us who are more athletic, and less inclined to get serious about a true yoga practice.

Rock Climbing with Leslie Timms

A couple of the scenes in the movie centered around rock climbing (or tower climbing, to be more precise). And I don’t know any other woman I’d want giving me advice about climbing other than Leslie Timms, one of the top women climbers in the world and an all-around badass.

It’s pretty cool to realize how many episodes we’ve done that can all speak to this idea of being like Wonder Woman, but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Really, if you dig on mythology, the Amazons were sort of the first Consummate Athletes, so it makes sense.

Get training! (And let us know in the comments if you liked this article!)

Instead of letting my body get completely depleted on a ride and being panicked and “hangry” when I got home, I fueled throughout and could make healthy nutrition choices when I got home”

Sean Asks about Cycling Commuting and if it counts in training?

Thanks for all the great podcasting. I’ve got a question about recovery/commuting via bike. I commute via bike about 15 miles a day, 5 days a week, on city roads (so a lot of red lights and stop signs). I enjoy getting to work that way, but its also way more convenient. After a hard weekend of bike racing (CX+MTB), hiking or something else, I usually still ride. Is this hurting my recovery by slowing it down? or has my body accepted this as normal?
Lastly, would you generally count this time+effort in training at all? I’ve done it here and there with a PM, just to get an idea, and get anywhere from 35-50 TSS for the roundtrip. I basically try to keep the effort low whenever possible, but there’s always something that throws that off.

TOPICS AND LINKS FROM TODAYS SHOW:

In July, World Bicycle Relief did something pretty epic in order to build a school and provide bicycles for girl students in Malawi. WBR ambassador Renee Lockey (racquetball, road cycling + MTB – she’s also an OB-GYN) and WBR development manager Claire Gieger (crew, Ironman finisher, road cyclist + MTB) teamed up to take on the epic 7-day BC Bike Race starting July 6.
Since neither one has been racing mountain bikes for very long, this is definitely “outside my comfort zone” for both. It’s also a bucket list event and something they’ll have to lean on each other to finish. Part of only 15% of female participants, they are hoping to empower women (“so few women do long distance events”) while raising funds to empower girl students in Malawi with the power of the bicycle.
In Malawi, systemic gender inequalities hold girls back in a variety of ways, particularly when it comes to education and sexual health. Forty-six percent of children in Malawi do not finish primary school while 42% of Malawian girls are married by age 18. Adolescent girls and young women also face a disproportionate risk of acquiring HIV in Malawi. By distributing 70% of Buffalo Bicycles to girl students and offering strong, group-based mentorship programs, the World Bicycle Relief community can help girls achieve their educational dreams, build self-esteem, break the cycle of poverty, and reduce HIV infections.

Let’s start with your twitter bio: Author of BORN TO RUN and NATURAL BORN HEROES. Currently working on a new project with a donkey named Flower. Any spoilers on what the new book is going to be about? (https://www.triplecrownfeed.com/at-70-years-of-age-flower-is-both-the-worlds-oldest-donkey-longest-lived-equine/)

When you wrote Born To Run, what were you hoping the impact would be? What do you think made it hook people attention compared to a lot of books in the same genre?

So many people took up ultra running and swapped out to barefoot shoes (ahem Molly did both basically immediately)… How did that feel? (Did it seem like people missed the overall message?)

In both books, what was the initial *grab* for you—why those primary stories?

Of everyone you interviewed in both books, who are the two or three that stand out the most & why?

Anyone you wish you’d gotten to add in? Anyone you wish you left out?

Quickly for my nerdy edification: what does the general process look like for your book writing?

Going back to you—were you an athletic kid? What’s been your athletic life trajectory?

Which book got you in better shape?

What practices from either book do you still keep up?

What does training look like now?

What about eating? In BTR, the diets that sort of became noteworthy were largely vegan, and then in NBR, we got into foraging and being fat-adapted. Where are you now?

Can you eat using both the Vegan & paleo frameworks?

Vegan Paleo
  • depending on reasons can be flexible and use ‘whole-foods’ approach to a healthy vegan diet. May consider why adding in limits of Paleo of no obvious reason to. Or why not take veggies approach to paleo while still eating meat (if ok with meat).
  •   soak and sprout grains, legumes, nuts, seeds to aid
  • work with professional on testing, tweaking diet, and supplementation on b-vit, choline, iodine, omega 3 etc.

How Peter is eating? (And how is Molly different?)

Food on specific workout days  
 1) off day – veggies, fruit, meat, nuts and seeds  *this includes sweet potato/tubers but may be wise to restrict this on off days if trying to lose weight
    90min endurance – veggies, fruit, meat, nuts, and seeds
    hard or long (>90min) -> add in bars, gels in ride and likely cereal/grains pre/post ride
     race day pre-breakfast/meal (3hrs prior) – have been doing plain cheerios+blueberries+almond milk this year
Typical Meals
    Breakfast most days = sweet potato, eggs, spinach in a pan (often one/some of the onion, bacon, potato, peppers, kale, spices, avocado, nut butter for flavor and variety)
    SNacks – Not many but fruit/nut butters, sweet potato  + tea/coffee/water/ carbonated water
    lunch – sweet potato/nut butter or cereal/berries/nuts (usually pre or post ride)
    Dinner – meat, salad or all-in-one pan of meat/veggies … most days we make a Guacamole (avo, tomatoes, cilantro, lime, salt)
              *excluded are all wheat, dairy, soy, legumes, added sugar, juice, processed/frozen foods, seed-industrial oils,
Tricks  = aim for small wins vs. 100% … if today was a 30% good day … can you get to 31% tomorrow?
            = try as hard as you can to keep your home free of temptations … I am not ‘perfect’ I like treats/chocolate (chocolate milk especially!) but I just fight to keep it out of my usual places and break patterns where I end up eating (ie. if I stay up watching TV, or if I do computer work late I will be tempted to snack) … having leftovers at most meals helps with ‘convenience foods.
           = substitute for small wins => cauliflower for rice, spaghetti squash for spaghetti, sweet potato or rice cakes for bread, ‘paleo pancakes’ for pancakes, apple/nut butter for a ‘bad snack’
and more in her nutrition book:
