Professor John Hawley is one of the world's leading researchers on the cellular and molecular basis of endurance sports adaptations within skeletal muscle. Additionally, his area of expertise covers the interaction of exercise and diet, and practical implications of this such as "train low" (with low carbohydrate availability) strategies to improve performance. 

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The adaptations in response to endurance training that take place in skeletal muscle

-Using nutritional interventions to enhance adaptations: the "train low" strategy

-Fiber types (fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscle fibers) and how muscle fiber profile may influence training strategies

-The relative importance of musculoskeletal (peripheral) adaptations vs. cardiovascular (central) adaptations for endurance athletes

Q&A #100 - Long run duration and distance targets; Effective run training on reduced volume; Treadmill running in hot and humid climates
  • Considerations regarding target duration and distance for long runs in triathlon training
  • When running volume is low for injury prevention reasons, how do you get the most bang for buck of the volume that you do have? 
  • When training in high heat index (hot and humid) environments, is treadmill running an effective method to maximise your training adaptations?
