Q&A #51 - What are the benefits of long rides? Can you get the same effects by pre-fatiguing the muscles with intensity?  
  • The three key benefits of long rides: metabolic and fat oxidation, muscle fiber recruitment patterns, and endurance signalling
  • Can you replicate the benefits of a longer ride by doing a shorter long ride which includes e.g. one hour of tempo or Sweet Spot work to induce more fatigue early in the workout? 
  • What are the drawbacks of using this pre-fatiguing strategy? 
  • Using work done (in kJ or kcal) as the best way to compare 'equivalent durations' of workouts

Q&A #42 - Increasing swimming stroke rate, heart rate response to different bike intervals, and becoming less reliant on your kick when swimming 
  • How to increase your swimming stroke rate effectively.

Professor Andy Jones is internationally recognized for his work in academia and applied sports science. He has authored more than 280 original research and review articles, worked with the two best marathoners in history (Eliud Kipchoge and Paula Radcliffe) and is perhaps best known for his pioneering work in the use of dietary nitrate (found in e.g. beetroot) and its impact on endurance performance.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Nitrate loading: what are the benefits and what is the proper protocol for it?

-Can nitrate loading be done with normal beetroot juice or beetroots, or are specific supplements preferable?

-Will we see the 2-hour marathon milestone broken soon, and what advances in running should take place for it to happen?

-Running and endurance performance in large part comes down to three parameters: aerobic capacity (VO2max), economy, and lactate threshold. How should we train to improve these parameters?

-The Critical Power concept and how it stacks up to Maximum Lactate Steady State
