Our Perspective on Human Performance

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 […]

Terrain’ing

The 2016 road-racing and event season is well under way, and some great spectacles have already passed with extremely exciting and closely contested monument pro-races Strade Bianchi, Paris-Roubaix, Paris-Nice, Milan-San Remo, Tirrenho-Adriatico and Tour of the Basque, while Amstel Gold and Leige-Bastogne-Liege imminently under way. Winter preparation of strength and endurance should now be starting […]

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 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 […]
