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

Professor John Hawley is one of the leading researchers in the world on sports nutrition, the interaction between exercise and diet on fat and carbohydrate regulation, and the cellular and molecular basis of endurance sports adaptations. He gives us a complete update on what we actually know as of today about endurance sports nutrition, and where evidence is still lacking.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Nailing the basics of endurance sports nutrition - what's most important to consider and get right?

-Getting clear on commonly misunderstood terminology in the field of nutrition

-Beyond the basics: the impact on endurance performance of manipulating carbohydrate availability, nutrition periodisation, and day to day diet

-Fat, carbs, and their impact on inflammation and recovery, insulin response, and body composition

-How do elite endurance athletes actually eat?

-Common myths about and mistakes amateur athletes make with nutrition

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 Greipel) and with age-group endurance athletes. He is also the co-founder of the physiological performance software INSCYD. In this episode we discuss cycling technique, quality of movement, and holding a good (aerodynamic) position, and how the LEOMO Type-R device can be used to improve these important but easily forgotten aspects of cycling and triathlon cycling.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The importance of quality of movement in cycling, and how it has become somewhat forgotten in a world obsessed with power.

-The LEOMO Type-R device, and how it can measure quality of movement in a large variety of ways to help assess and inform training.

-Examples of common issues regarding quality of movement and how to correct them

-How to use the LEOMO Type-R to improve aerodynamics

-How much should triathletes and time trialists train in the TT-position

-Is the LEOMO Type-R a good investment for age-group triathletes?

The Nike Vaporfly 4% running shoes are supposed to improve running economy by 4%. Wouter Hoogkamer, PhD, is one of the researchers who found out that this improvement is actually legit. What's more, he has researched how much faster that improvement in running economy could make you. In today's episode we discuss the Vaporfly 4% shoes, running shoes in general, running economy, breaking two hours for the marathon, and more.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The Nike Vaporfly 4% shoes, and how Wouter and his colleagues at the University of Colorado verified that they can reduce the energetic cost of running a given speed by 4%.

-Running economy, and how improvements in it translates to improvements in speed. Slower runners may benefit more from the 4% shoes than faster runners.

-Footwear in general, and the tradeoff between cushioning (which is good for running economy) and weight (which is bad for running economy)

-The impact of drafting in running - how much energy can it save you? -

-Common objections to polarised training

-How can polarised training apply to age-group triathletes?

Stephen Seiler, PhD, is known for his research on how elite endurance athletes actually train. In this research, he discovered that most endurance athletes spend the majority of their training time (~90%) at very low intensities (below the first lactate/ventilatory threshold) with most of the remainder of the training time spent at high intensities (above the second lactate/ventilatory threshold), with little time spent in between. This training intensity distribution has become popularised and known as 'polarised training'.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-What is polarised training, and what is the evidence behind it?

-Polarised training and "pyramidal training" - the nuances of training for different kinds of endurance sports and events

-Does polarised training work for time-limited age group triathletes?

-How to set up your training zones and intensities correctly (and the dangers of short-cutting FTP-tests)

-Triathlon-specific considerations with polarised training
