Jem Arnold is a physiotherapist, coach and PhD student. Currently, his main research focus is investigating FLIA: blood flow limitation of the iliac artery, a condition that affects certain athletes even at the very elite level, sometimes with surgery as the end outcome. Jem is also very involved and knowledgeable in using NIRS (near-infrared spectroscopy) to measure muscle oxygen saturation (SmO2). We dive deep into how using NIRS and SmO2 can inform workout execution as well as training interventions and athlete profiling.    

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-What is NIRS and what is muscle oxygen saturation? 

-The balance of oxygen delivery (to the capillaries surrounding muscle tissue - supply) and extraction (by the muscles from the capillaries - demand)

-NIRS testing protocols, and how it relates (and does not relate) to oxygen uptake (VO2) and lactate measurments

-Using NIRS to profile athletes 

-Using NIRS in high-intensity workouts to optimise interval execution 

-Blood flow limitation of the iliac artery (FLIA) - what is it, and what is its prevalence among athletes

-Risk factors for FLIA

-Current detection and diagnosis methods of FLIA, as well as treatment options

-How Jem's research aims to find methods by which FLIA detection can be improved

-The process of putting together a team for Sub7, as well as training and testing done leading up to it

-What it took (power numbers and race power profile) to be a part of the team, and what Joe Skipper needed to do to hold on at the back of the paceline

-Tactics used on the bike leg

-The importance of training at a high speed (like moto pacing) due to pedalling kinematics

-The battle between Team Skipper and Team Blummenfelt

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
