How do you apply endurance sports science in practice? Learn the complete process from knowing the balance between evidence-based and experience-based, interpreting and contextualising research, recognising poor research and interpretations, to applying it to improve your triathlon performance. 
 
 
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
 
  • The three-legged stool: scientific evidence, coach's experience, athlete's desire and experience. 
  • Don't proclaim yourself "evidence-based" and disregard experience (yours or others') for the sake of it
  • Interpreting research studies, understanding different study designs and terminology, like statistical significance and effect size
  • Statistically significant does not equal the absolute truth - research results is the observation of what happened, not the prediction of what will happen in the future.
  • The importance of context (demographic, environmental, athletic ability, etc.)
  • The importance of humility - don't be so quick to criticize. A great training plan is based on improving the individual athlete's performance, not on pegging them into the hole of the average research subject response. 
  • If you're not measuring you're not managing.
