Shannon Grady is the founder of GO! Athletics and an expert in the application of bioenergetics, lactate dynamics, and applied physiology for endurance performance optimization. Shannon has worked with over 9000 athletes including Olympic, professional, collegiate, and high school athletes in over 25 sports, and is herself a former professional runner, NCAA All-American, and five-time Team USA Triathlon with 4 Top-10 ITU World Championship finishes.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • The science of bioenergetics and lactate dynamics and how they relate to endurance performance and training
  • The fallacy of traditional lactate testing
  • A systems based training approach based on the individuals range of lactate concentration
  • How many endurance athletes lack at least one system and are therefore bioenergetically limited and therefore compromising their endurance perfomance
  • Training mistakes that lead to bioenergetic deficits and suboptimal performance and training adaptations
  • Nutrition mistakes that lead to bioenergetic deficits and suboptimal performance and training adaptations

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Knowing the purpose of each and every workout

-Having the right mindset in training to make the most of every workout

-Prerequisites of successful workouts - mobilisation, hydration status, energy and carbohydrate status, recovery status

-Using session-RPE to train at the right intensity

-Focusing on the big picture

-Balancing your engine and your chassis

-Getting out of your comfort zone by doing things that you consciously or subconsciously tend to avoid doing in training

-Using group training strategically

-Benefiting from the compound effect of coaching, testing, and technical advice

Q&A #41 - Back to back morning workouts; flip turns, bilateral breathing and non-freestyle strokes; and run training progress when returning from a stress fracture
  • Can you do two workouts in the morning rather than one in the morning and one in the evening and still get the same benefits?
  • Should triathletes learn how to do flip turns, how to swim other strokes than freestyle and how to bilaterally breathe?
  • What is a safe way to get back into running when returning from a stress fracture?

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

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? -

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

Training camps are great (and fun!) ways to increase fitness and build up towards a strong triathlon racing season. But there are several important do's and don'ts you must pay attention to if you want to make the camp a successful one from which you come out the other side stronger. The main reason many age-groupers do not benefit from training camps is that they are unaware of, or do not adhere to these triathlon training camp commandments.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The objectives of a training camp

-How much volume can and should you do on a training camp

-How much intensity can and should you do on a training camp

-Training tips for swimming, cycling, and running when on a training camp

-Nutrition, hydration, workout and post-workout fuelling, and recovery tips for a training camp

-How to resume training after a training camp
