Our Perspective on Human Performance

SAD ? Nutrition can motivate you!

SAD ? Nutrition can motivate you!

Now that the festivities have finished for another year, hopefully the sight of a mince pie will make you wince in disgust! As all those new years resolutions are being considered with ‘good’ intentions, I thought this would be a prime opportunity to fuel your motivation for taking control of your nutrition once again. You […]

Master Class: The Science of Ageing

Master Class: The Science of Ageing

Chronological vs Physiological time   None of us are getting younger??…….This could be more commonly regarded as a false statement now. Even as chronological time ticks by, huge advances in the practice of exercise physiology and application of strength and endurance interventions are now ‘demonstrably’ able to reverse diseased or declining physiological states; obesity, type II […]

The Secrets of Peak Performance III: Strength and Power.

The Secrets of Peak Performance III: Strength and Power.

To be brutally honest…strength training, resistance work, gym sessions call them what you like, are crucial to any cyclists future performance. Laying the foundations of muscular structure in the winter when endurance volume is low (Intensity can and should be maintained to a certain extent) is well known (with plenty of evidence) to benefit cyclists at […]

Reasons to profile your lactate kinetics

Reasons to profile your lactate kinetics

One day I believe we will have real-time lactate and glucose measurements, with feed back biometrics from biosensors and our power-meters, displayed to us through ‘Reality Glasses’ or something ridiculous like that. But until that day, the best way of understanding these biochemical processes during our simulated performance is through a good physiologist or sports scientist who appreciates […]
