Podcast Episode 211: Jake & Zane Robertson-Fastest twins in history
In episode 211 of The Physical Performance Show I share a conversation with Jake & Zane Robertson-Fastest twins in history in this Bonus Lockdown edition. One of the things that came out of this conversation with Jake and Zane Robertson is the dangers and frustrations of constantly being compared as identical twin brothers.  So the risk of adding fuel to the fire Jake and Zane Robertson’s PB’s are red-hot. Between them they boast oceanic records as follows: Jake 10km oceanic record 27:28, 10,000m 27:32, half marathon 59:57. Zane oceanic marathon record 2:08:19 and half marathon 59:47 and 10km 27:28. There’s a lot more to Jake and Zane Robertson than PB’S and that’s some of what we delve into on this episode. During this episode we cover the early days, training principles, running hills, training failures, training successes periodising training, approaching marathons, training blocks, fuelling for performance and the hard eating questions around pancakes, basketball and Tupac.
