Stephan van der Zwaard, PhD, is an assistant professor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam as well as a data scientist at Leiden University. With his background in both sports science and exercise physiology as well as data science, Stephan is able to work at the intersection of these fields to provide unique perspectives both in academia and applied sports such as cycling and speed skating. Today we discuss one of Stephan's most recent papers, titled "Under the hood: Skeletal muscle determinants of endurance performance".  

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-A summary of VO2max, lactate threshold, and exercise economy (whole body-determinants of endurance performance)

-A deep dive into skeletal muscle determinants of endurance performance (including muscle fiber type, mitochondrial oxidative capacity, capillarisation, myoglobin and others)

-Different training types and training intensities (e.g. low intensity, moderate intensity, high intensity, sprint interval training etc), and how they might impact the skeletal determinants of endurance performance

-Why the polarised training model tends to work so well for endurance athletes

Professor Melitta Mcnarry of Swansea University has recently published a meta-analysis on the health and mortality (all-cause, cardiovascular disease, and cancer) consequences of an elite sporting career. Here, she discusses the findings and the potential implications.     

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Reasons for conducting the meta-analysis, including questions marks around whether a high amount of exercise might be detrimental rather than beneficial for health and longevity

-The significantly reduced mortality in elite athletes, in particular endurance athletes and team sport athletes

-Potential reasons for the reduced mortality

-The relationship between cardiorespiratory fitness and protection against cardiovascular disease

-Potential reasons for why elite endurance athletes had greatly reduced cardiovascular disease mortality, but no difference compared to the general population for cancer mortality

In this episode, Professor Robert Lamberts (Stellenbosch University) and Annemiek Roete (University of Groningen) discuss their recent systematic review on (noninvasive) markers of functional overreaching in endurance athletes. We also discuss the Lamberts Submaximal Cycle Test (LSCT), and it's application in triathlon as a monitoring tool as well as its application as a performance indicator.       

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Physiological (VO2max, submaximal power output, PPO), heart rate (resting, max, submax, HRR, HRV), and subjective (RPE, POMS, DALDA) markers of functional overreaching

-Which markers are the best for assessing non-functional overreaching, and how many (or how few) should you be monitoring? 

-Is functional overreaching necessary or beneficial for endurance adaptations? 

-What is the LSCT (Lamberts Submaximal Cycle Test) protocol? 

-The LSCT as a performance predictor in triathlon

-The LSCT as a method to monitor training adaptations and overreaching

José Ramón Lillo, PhD is a researcher at the University of Alicante. In this interview, we discuss a study where Functional Threshold Power (FTP, as measured by 95% of the average power from a 20-minute all-out time trial) was compared to maximal lactate steady state (MLSS) and other physiological markers.     

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Definitions of testing protocols for FTP and MLSS

-How does FTP compare to MLSS according to Dr. Lillo's research? 

-How does the warm-up protocol of the FTP-test (Coggan and Allen proposed a long, intense warm-up including a 5-minute time trial) impact the measured FTP? 

-Recommendations for a lower correction coefficient than the original 95% to get a better estimate of MLSS

-General testing recommendations for field and lab testing

Phil Bellinger, PhD, is a researcher and lecturer at Griffith University, Australia. His work includes training interventions, nutritional interventions, and more recently using magnetic resonance spectroscopy to non-invasively assess muscle fibre typology and investigate how it relates to performance and training adaptations. He has also recently published a literature review on functional overreaching in endurance sports.    

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Fundamentals of different muscle fibre types, and muscle fibre type distribution 

-How an athlete's muscle fibre typology impacts recovery within and from high-intensity exercise

-How an athlete's muscle fibre typology impacts adaptations to training resulting from periods of "overload training" (increased volume)

-The differences between acute fatigue, functional overreaching, and non-functional overreaching

-Is functional overreaching necessary to induce training adaptations?
