Our Perspective on Human Performance

Virgin London Marathon Deferred

Virgin London Marathon Deferred

Disappointment The most sensible decision is often the hardest to make. Realising extensive training over the last few months will not be fruitful is difficult to accept. But the reality is the inflammation hadn’t subsided enough and more damage may be done which risks a long term debilitating condition. Even though I felt that I would be able to […]

LVRC Toachim Vets Series

LVRC Toachim Vets Series

Simon Collins has been supported by CPS In-Motion for 3 full seasons now, each year having quite a different competitive focus and event schedule, rather than the same races, ranging from TT, to road-racing and occasional sportive. Even though each year, alone, has presented it’s own set of challenges for preparation, carefully navigating around injury, illness, work […]

Achieving Prime Cycling Performance

FORM and function: Ronan Descy

Understanding fit methodology   CPS In-Motion has spent some time talking to Ronan Descy of FORM in south-west London. Ronan has developed an extensive reputation and experience in bike fitting over the last decade. Here are some of the points he made during our recent chat……   Thoughts on the commercial bike-fit market…. “The different […]

Biomechanics and injury prevention

Biomechanics and injury prevention

Optimal biomechanical functioning is a key component of physical fitness for all sports, particularly in running and cycling where strength and power are important elements of sustainable endurance. Discrepancies in balance and asymmetries in movement can lead to poor performance and result in muscle strain or joint issues. Similarly, injury prevention allows a cyclist or […]

Over Training Syndrome (OTS)

Over Training Syndrome (OTS)

The end of the competitive cycling season (north of the equator) is nearly upon us, with the exception of a few nasty hill climbs and some World Champs excitement, hopefully. At this time of year you are probably assessing how well your events have worked out or not, whether you’ve noticeably improved in performance (hopefully […]

Smash the Ball Buster!

Smash the Ball Buster!

Intro and workshop Being located in SW London/ Surrey, I have often been asked about the Ball-Buster, a seriously challenging duathlon which can test the mettle of even the most robust athletes. This is an event I frequently recommend to clients to demonstrate their end of summer fitness, on terrain many people commonly train, using ‘The Box’ or […]

Performance coaching

Performance coaching

Philosophy In-Motion:   Becoming a good coach isn’t as simple as attending a few courses or reading a few chapters in a book…as I have learnt over the last few years! I hope to share what are considered the general principles of coaching with my unique perspective from experience with numerous and very different athletes. I […]

Elite Sports Performance – Expo 2016

Elite Sports Performance – Expo 2016

The performance sport industry has seen massive expansion over the last few years, most definitely derived from the wealth of evidence-based research and data from advanced applications, technology and physical and cognitive training interventions. Exercise physiology has been successfully applied in many different sports, from dance, to gymnastics and rugby…not just cycling. The Elite Sports […]

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 IV: Strength and Endurance

The Secrets of Peak Performance IV: Strength and Endurance

Concurrent Strength and Endurance Training (S&E)   As a continuation from my last post about improving strength to increase sustainable power through resistance exercise with weights… this post delves into more of the actual training practicalities involved. Performing strength and endurance training promotes a greater volume of Type IIA, more fatigue resistant, high force muscle […]
