James Edward Hardee III, better known as Trey Hardee, is an American track and field athlete who specializes in the decathlon. He was born on February 7, 1984 in Birmingham, Alabama, United States. Known as a former NCAA Champion, he is also noted as a two-time World Outdoor Champion and member of the United States 2008 Olympic team. In 2012, he earned the silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics.
In one of his interviews, Trey shared some fitness advice to everyone who are interested in including high-endurance running on their fitness routine. He said, “People are obsessed with burning some specific number of calories, and they think the best way to do that is by running high mileage, which is not always the case. Endurance isn’t a bad thing, but people think that’s the only way to get fit. Really, there are 10 different ways to do it, and the more ways you incorporate, the better.” He said that he includes power cleans, squats, and bench presses in his workout routine.
He also shared his knowledge about warm-ups. “Stretching isn’t warming up,” he explained. “Warming up is literally that— raising your body’s temperature and getting blood flowing to your muscles. The idea is not to elongate your muscles. It’s simply to wake them up and let them know what they’re about to do.”
In addition, he said that it’s really important to drink lots of water. “For me, there’s no such thing as too much water,” he said. “My body craves it from the moment I wake up until I go to bed, and I drink until my body tells me I’m loaded.”
