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 #50 - Antioxidants and endurance training; Time in Zone vs. Modified Session Goal approach
  • What is the relation between antioxidants, antioxidant requirements and endurance training? Can antioxidant supplementation impair training adaptation, and should we avoid antioxidants? 
  • If I want to calculate my Time in Zone (TiZ) for a workout, what approach is recommended? 
  • How do I find the balance between running that is easy enough that my heart rate stays low, but not too easy so it's just a shuffle with poor form?

Q&A #45 - Intensity unnecessary (?) for Ironman, warm-ups, lactate test timing, and adjusting a training week
  • Is it really necessary to do any intensive training when preparing for an Ironman? Can you just do base miles? 
  • When is the best time to get a lactate test? 
  • How should you time your warm-up for an Olympic race, considering wave starts, transition area closing and so on? 
  • How do you adjust a training week if you are prevented from doing one discipline (e.g. swimming) but could supplement with another (or two)?
  • The impact of heat on carb/fat oxidation ratios (a correction to Q&A #44)

Q&A #44 - Carb/fat combustion based on pace and heart rate; VO2max intervals on flats or uphill
  • If heart rate was in zone 4 and pace in zone 2: did you use mostly carbs or fats for fuel?

  • Should mobility work count towards your total training duration?

Q&A #40 - When to choose a road bike in a non-draft race, using half or full Ironmans in the lead-up to a big goal race, and making up calories after big days of training

Alan Couzens is a coach and exercise physiologist in Boulder, Colorado. Through his laboratory testing of a large number of athletes over a long time period he has found that triathlon and endurance sports potential (specifically VO2max) is far more trainable and less limited by genetics than what most textbooks and university courses would have us believe. In fact, most triathletes may actually have the potential to qualify for Kona - with the right training.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-How trainable is VO2max really?

-Why do most athletes fail to reach their athletic potential even though they are putting in a lot of hard work?

-What is the right way to train to reach your athletic potential?

-The importance of training at the first lactate/ventilatory threshold (aerobic threshold)

-The importance of proper testing so you can do the right testing for you

-When to use heart rate vs. pace/power in training

Q&A #38 - Individual differences in heart rate and training zones, including cadence spin-ups in aerobic rides, and hard run to easy ride brick workouts
  • How come my slower friend (in races) runs faster than me in training and at a lower heart rate?
  • What is the right way to include cadence spin-ups in an aerobic ride without negating the effects of the easy aerobic training?

Q&A #28 - Time management, training on limited time, mastering workout logistics and transitions, training frequency vs. workout duration and training to distance or to time?
 
  • How should you structure training for a sprint triathlon when you can only train 4 days per week?
  • Is it more important to have a higher training frequency (more workouts) or longer individual workouts if the total time/duration is the same, and why?
  • Is it better to train to time or to distance, and why?
  • How do you manage your time effectively and become a master of workout logistics and transitions in order to get the most out of your training time budget?
