Associate Professor Dustin Joubert of Stephen F. Austin State University discusses his study comparing seven carbon-plated "Super Shoes", and how runners and triathletes should interpret and use the results. We also discuss more informal testing that Dr Joubert is doing on a regular basis in his lab, including shoes not included in the study. 

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-What is a super shoe, what are the purported benefits, and the proposed mechanisms behind them? 

-The Super Shoe study: protocol, shoes included, results and conclusions. Are the Nikes all-conquering? 

-What does this mean for consumers? How should triathletes and runners go about selecting shoes for racing? 

-Dr Joubert's informal testing, including the Adidas Adios Pro 2 and running in crocs! 

-How do running economy benefits translate to performance benefits? 

-What happens to the benefits from Super Shoes when running uphill or downhill?

Peter Leo is an applied exercise physiologist and high performance coach from Austria. Peter has done extensive research in profiling performance and physiological characteristics of U23 cyclists which we discuss in this interview. We also discuss power profiling and using Critical Power.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Best practices for power profiling (e.g. formal testing vs. raw training data) and methodological considerations

-What is Critical Power, and why use that as a main physiological marker over others (such as MLSS and FTP)

-Power changes in U23 cyclists across a season

-How training characteristics (e.g. training intensity distribution as well as added load from racing) impacted the change in power profile across the season

-Practical takeaways from these studies - what can we learn when thinking about how we go about our own training and racing across an entire season?
