Stephan van der Zwaard, PhD, is an assistant professor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam as well as a data scientist at Leiden University. With his background in both sports science and exercise physiology as well as data science, Stephan is able to work at the intersection of these fields to provide unique perspectives both in academia and applied sports such as cycling and speed skating. Today we discuss one of Stephan's most recent papers, titled "Under the hood: Skeletal muscle determinants of endurance performance".  

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-A summary of VO2max, lactate threshold, and exercise economy (whole body-determinants of endurance performance)

-A deep dive into skeletal muscle determinants of endurance performance (including muscle fiber type, mitochondrial oxidative capacity, capillarisation, myoglobin and others)

-Different training types and training intensities (e.g. low intensity, moderate intensity, high intensity, sprint interval training etc), and how they might impact the skeletal determinants of endurance performance

-Why the polarised training model tends to work so well for endurance athletes
