Sebastian Weber is a sports scientist and highly successful coach, in both professional sports (having worked with athletes like Peter Sagan, Tony Martin, and André Greipek) and with age-group endurance athletes. He is also the co-founder of the physiological performance software INSCYD. One of the important factors for his success is his knowledge about exercise physiology and metabolism. Today, he shares this knowledge with us so that you too can benefit from it and become a faster triathlete.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-What is FTP (Functional Threshold Power), why does it even exist, and how can you train to improve it?

-The only two variables that can be changed to improve FTP: VO2max (Aerobic Capacity) and VLaMax (glycolytic capacity)

-Why you need to focus on changing VO2max and/or VLaMax, and NOT FTP itself, if you want to improve your FTP.

-How to train to increase VO2max to increase FTP

-How to train to decrease VLaMax to increase FTP

-How VO2max and VLaMax determine your fat and carb oxidation at any intensity (including submaximal intensities)

-Nutritional aspects of changing FTP through changing VO2max and/or VLaMax

Q&A #21 - Training to heart rate or power, improving your aerobic engine for the swim, and are intervals better than long slow distance training? 
 
  • Do the day to day variations of heart rate mean it's better to train to power (or pace), even though you have assessed your heart rate zones using a lactate test?
  • Things to consider to get the most out of your lactate tests
  • How should you train to you improve your aerobic engine for the swim?

Q&A #20 - Testing for half and full distance triathlon: are typical 20-minute tests relevant, and are there better options?
 
  • How relevant are typical field tests (20-minute bike and run Time Trials, 400 + 200 m Critical Swim Speed test) for half and full Ironman athletes? 
  • How skewed are these tests by athletes' anaerobic capacity? 
  • Can and should Muscular Endurance be tested? 
  • What is the role of race intensity training, if it isn't to improve threshold or VO2max?
  • How important is VO2max (aerobic capacity) anyway for long distance triathlon?
  • The little-known but massively important Ironman training and testing weapon: Lactate Building Rate, VLaMax

Q&A #11 - Should you use different heart rate zones for swimming, cycling and running?
 
  • According to Dr. Phil Maffletone, the aerobic threshold heart rate is the same in all aerobic sports (like swimming, cycling, and running). Is this true? 
  • How the type of athlete you are and your ability and experience in different sports impacts whether your heart rate zones will be similar or not between different sports. 
  • Practical examples from lab tests and research studies showing massive discrepancies in threshold heart rate between sports (we're talking 10-20 bpm differences)
  • The problems with the MAF-formula or 180-formula for aerobic threshold heart rate.
