Daniel Muniz, PhD, is a senior lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire. Some of his recent work involves big data analysis (from Strava) of marathon runners, where Daniel and his co-authors set out to explore how decoupling (changes in the ratio of internal to external workload, like heart rate to pace) can be an important parameter in marathon (and possibly broader endurance) performance.    

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-What does decoupling mean and how can it be calculated? 

-How a lesser degree of decoupling is associated with better marathon performance

-What are the physiological underpinnings of decoupling? 

-What do we know about training interventions to reduce decoupling? 

-Is decoupling independent of other markers of performance (like Critical Speed) or can it be improved by improving more traditional markers of performance? 

-Using big data from Strava to calculate Critical Speed based on training data only

Michael Liberzon is a Toronto-based triathlon coach, bike fitter and aero tester, and host of the Endurance Innovation podcast.

-Expected time gains for a TT bike vs. a road bike over sprint, Olympic, half and full distance races on relatively flat courses. 

-Is there a point where a course is so hilly that it makes sense to race on a road bike?

-At what speed does it make sense to get out of the aerobars and sit up when climbing? 

-Other considerations for racing on hilly courses like disc wheel and hydration setup

Mark Burnley, PhD, is an exercise physiologist at the University of Wolverhampton. In this episode, we discuss the VLaMax, polarised training (and it not being optimal for endurance athletes), and using measures of complexity to assess fatigue. This is part two of a two-part interview with Mark.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-VLaMax: the background, reason for recent surge to popularity, and the mechanistic and practical issues with measuring it

-Polarised training is not optimal for endurance athletes: the arguments against polarised training being an "ideal" training intensity distribution, and why quantifying training intensity distributions may not be the smartest thing to do in the first place

-How measures of complexity (e.g. Approximate entropy ApEn, alpha-exponent of Detrended Fluctuation analysis DFA) can be used to assess fatigue, and the potential applications thereof

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-How combining pyramidal and polarised training blocks (in that specific order) may be a more effective periodisation scheme to optimise endurance performance

-How the goal event (e.g. 5k vs. marathon running) might influence and change these findings
