London Marathon 2018 – Self-Prescription

London Marathon 2018 – Self-Prescription

Finally I am my own case study once again, feels great. Self-prescription is a novelty for me as a performance coach committed to my clients programme success. But even practitioners need to train like anyone else, counteracting the negative consequences of hours in front of a laptop, to at least maintain some respectable ability even [...]
Achieving Prime Cycling Performance

Achieving Prime Cycling Performance

Intro..   Oliver Williams approached CPS In-Motion in July 2016 with the sole ambition of gaining top form for races in the 2017 season. Ollie had reached what he thought was his peak ability in 2015 having good results in the  Tour of Cambridge, at the 6 stage Giro di Sardegna and Crystal Palace series. Suffering an […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Secrets of Peak Performance I : Carbohydrate Fueling

The Secrets of Peak Performance I : Carbohydrate Fueling

The last few weeks have been pretty hectic what with the excellent Elite performance show at Excel and exposure to an established electrolyte product which I am currently testing during the unusual, albeit welcome mini-heatwave we are experiencing here in the south-east. As my client base is predominantly pure-play cyclists I will also be using it during my […]

Understanding Intervals

Understanding Intervals

All my posts are an original perspective on current sports science and exercise physiology topics. I tend to cringe at the term ‘hack’ or ‘pseudo’ as this brings about connotations of ‘fake’ which no scientist wants to be associated with. Although some individuals do succumb to the delusional yet real pressure to perform and publish results […]

Live Demo – Wed 21st Jan @7pm VeloSport, Putney

  This live demonstration of a full lactate threshold profile will provide valuable insight into current endurance sports performance assessment and best practices.  VeloSport’s own Steve James will be the test subject on the night…so come along and witness his suffering! The lactate threshold power/ heart rate is an important parameter of cycling performance, and is now commonly used […]
