Q&A #114 - Using kilojoules to monitor training load; Big rides for Ironman; Should your training be as hard as your race
  • How work (kilojoules) done can be used to effectively monitor training load at a micro- and mesocycle level, and even within workouts
  • When should you do your key Ironman rides and what should they look like?
  • Should your training meet or even exceed the demands of your goal race, or should even the hardest workouts slightly undershoot what you'll need to do on race day?

Q&A #111 - Build, then recover vs. consistent training load; Creatine for endurance athletes (that lift weights) 
  • Is it better to work to a 2-1 or 3-1 "build-then-recover" training model, or to keep training load and volume consistent across a larger number of weeks? 
  • Is creatine supplementation beneficial for endurance athletes doing concurrent resistance training in order to improve strength gains?

Professor Grégoire Millet is one of the world's foremost researchers in the field of altitude training and hypoxic training. 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)

-Living at altitude year round

-Altitude champers and tents

-Dissecting the performances of Martin Fourcade (the most successful biathlete of the last decade, and the most successful French Olympian of all time) and Kilian Jornet (mountaineer, trail and mountain runner, summited Mount Everest twice in a week without supplemental oxygen)
