He combines his academic prowess with a background as an elite triathlete and coach, and is therefore in a perfect position to not just do the science, but actually apply it in the real world. In this episode, we discuss all things altitude training, plus general training principles from a few of the world's best athletes that prof. Millet has worked with and published data from.  

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-What happens physiologically when training at altitude or in hypoxic conditions

-The potential performance gains from altitude training, and how everybody can be a responder

-How to structure altitude training to maximise the performance benefits 

-New(ish) paradigms in altitude training: Live high-train low and high, and Repeated Sprint training in Hypoxia (RSH)

Mark Burnley, PhD, is an exercise physiologist at the University of Kent. Mark's main research interests include oxygen uptake (VO2) kinetics, where an important application is how to optimally use warm-ups, as well as Critical Power, which forms the transition point (or transition area) between the heavy and severe exercise domains. Because of the non-steady-state nature of exercising above CP, it has significant importance in a large number of training and racing applications.  

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-VO2 kinetics - what does it mean? 

-The fast and slow components oxygen uptake

-Heavy priming exercise and its effects on VO2 kinetics (or the importance of a good, specific warm-up)

-Critical Power (CP) - what is it and how does it compare to other "threshold concepts"

-How to assess CP and use it in training

-How fatigue develops differently in the different exercise intensity domains (moderate, heavy, severe) and interventions to minimise fatigue

Q&A #109 - Running race pace and training zone calculators; Estimating your run threshold pace; How to use session-RPE
  • Do calculators that estimate and "equivalent race pace" (e.g. from a 10k to a marathon) actually work? 
  • What about the recommended training paces from such calculators?
  • How can you estimate your running threshold pace (without doing a one-hour time trial)?
  • What are best practices for using session-RPE?

Iñigo Mujika is a sports physiologist, associate professor at the University of Basque Country, and an elite triathlon and swimming coach. His research areas include topics such as tapering, recovery, detraining and overtraining. Through all of his coaching and applied physiology work, Iñigo is extremely knowledgeable in how to transfer his scientific knowledge into practical and actionable training and planning insights.  

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Periodisation in practice: linear, reverse, block... who might benefit from what type of periodisation and when? 

-How to structure recovery from a macro level (taking a season break) to a micro level (time required between hard sessions) into your training plan

-Tapering: best practices, scientific findings, potential benefits, and how to factor in individuality

-The time course of building and losing fitness (gaining adaptations vs. detraining)
