    352: Expert Edition: Dr Dan Plews. Low CHO diet: Right Fuel-Right Time Approach

    352: Expert Edition: Dr Dan Plews. Low CHO diet: Right Fuel-Right Time Approach

    Dr Dan Plews is a World Acclaimed Scientist, Applied Exercise Physiologist and Long-Course Triathlon Coach, he recently coached the current 2022 Ironman World Champion Chelsea Sodaro to victory.
    Scientifically, Dr Plews has over 30 peer reviewed publications to his name and has worked with more than 25 world and Olympic title winning athletes across a variety of sports.
    I spent time with Dr Dan Plews in New Zealand at the Endure IQ Headquarters alongside his athlete Javier Gomez, and we discussed ‘How does a long course triathlete best optimise their fat oxidation whilst doing it safely to ensure daily energy requirements are met and what are the upsides to this approach?’. I watched Dan train in person, he lives and breathes this and the results speak for themselves.

    350: Expert Edition: Kristina Skroce & Howard Zisser (MD) ‘Continuous Glucose Monitoring for Health & Performance’

    Back on episode 344 we featured Phil Sutherland, who shared the backstory of continuous glucose monitoring in the formation of Super Sapiens. Many of us now recognise the black disks now being worn on the back of the triceps of many of the planet's greatest endurance athletes, that is the Super Sapiens (CGM) continuous glucose monitoring device.
    In this episode Dr Howard Zisser and his Super Sapiens colleague Kristina Skroce, Sports Physiologist, dive deeper and explain how this technology and science has morphed from the world of health care into the world of performance, and what CGM may look like in the decade ahead for both healthcare and sporting performance.

fantastic episode with alistair brownlee

Great episode with Alistair Brownlee - really good learnings about keeping it simple and the importance of consistency in every aspect of training and recovery. Also, asking Alistair Brownlee a question he's never been asked before is no mean feat! 10/10
