David Epstein – The Sports Gene

I talk with David Epstein, author of The Sports Gene: Inside the Science of Extraordinary Athletic Performance. We talk about the role that genetics play in athleticism. We discuss the importance of training, genetics, and the interplay between the two. We also talk about why Kenyan runners are so good, what makes a great sprinter, and how to optimize your training for your personal genetics.
