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.

Perhaps I’m just bad at math… but how do I calculate fatigue factor that Coach Hinshaw spoke about? He mentioned that his goal for CrossFit competitors is around 20%, comparing the 400m times with the mile time.
Thanks math geniuses!
I loved the interview but I was not able to locate the free sample training that Chris had spoke about?
http://aerobiccapacity.com/ – search for “Workouts of the week” They are on the front page, just scroll down.
I noticed that Coach Chris posts four workouts per week, but suggests his athletes are only running twice per week. Does this mean they only focus on two of the workouts? Or does he create a combination of these workouts into one session?
Let me see If I can get Coach Hinshaw to answer this one.
