Professor Andy Jones is internationally recognized for his work in academia and applied sports science. He has authored more than 280 original research and review articles, worked with the two best marathoners in history (Eliud Kipchoge and Paula Radcliffe) and is perhaps best known for his pioneering work in the use of dietary nitrate (found in e.g. beetroot) and its impact on endurance performance.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-Nitrate loading: what are the benefits and what is the proper protocol for it?
-Can nitrate loading be done with normal beetroot juice or beetroots, or are specific supplements preferable?
-Will we see the 2-hour marathon milestone broken soon, and what advances in running should take place for it to happen?
-Running and endurance performance in large part comes down to three parameters: aerobic capacity (VO2max), economy, and lactate threshold. How should we train to improve these parameters?
-The Critical Power concept and how it stacks up to Maximum Lactate Steady State
