This week Lindsay helps athletes sort out questions about how to strength train while still following Primal Endurance recommendations, and she answers the burning question: Do I need an aerobic base if I'm not a competitive athlete? (Spoiler alert: yes!!) Plus stretching, elevation training, and more!
The question is: Are the benefits of building an aerobic base worth it for athletes that only have modest endurance goals? [00:01:38]
Would I ruin the purpose of an aerobic base-building block by adding in some lift heavy things? [00:04:18]

Also a question about stretching. What are the recommendations about what kinds of stretches are best as well as when is the best time to stretch? [00:18:12]
