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
