How to Increase Your Aerobic Capacity with Chris Hinshaw – Barbell Shrugged #220

What’s Up Shrug Nation!

This week we’re back at Powermonkey Fitness Camp in an interview with  Chris Hinshaw.

You know that weird sensation you get when you’re exercising that feels like you’re getting lightheaded, and your breathing through a straw? Or what about that feeling you start a workout way to fast and then crash and burn halfway through.

Yeah, that’s called breathing, capacity, and pacing. And it’s really hard to do, if you’ve never trained it before.

That’s what Chris is good at. Making you better at breathing, pacing, and lasting longer.

And not just making any one better, Chris has worked to help improve some of the best in the sport of CrossFit like Rich Froning, Jason Khalipa, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, and Mat Fraser. All CrossFit Games Champions.

In this episode we ask Chris about his aerobic training principles and how he has taken what he learned from his experience as a professional triathlete and applied it to coaching athletes in the sport of CrossFit. Specifically to build work capacity.
