In this episode, Professor Robert Lamberts (Stellenbosch University) and Annemiek Roete (University of Groningen) discuss their recent systematic review on (noninvasive) markers of functional overreaching in endurance athletes. We also discuss the Lamberts Submaximal Cycle Test (LSCT), and it's application in triathlon as a monitoring tool as well as its application as a performance indicator.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-Physiological (VO2max, submaximal power output, PPO), heart rate (resting, max, submax, HRR, HRV), and subjective (RPE, POMS, DALDA) markers of functional overreaching
-Which markers are the best for assessing non-functional overreaching, and how many (or how few) should you be monitoring?
-Is functional overreaching necessary or beneficial for endurance adaptations?
-What is the LSCT (Lamberts Submaximal Cycle Test) protocol?
-The LSCT as a performance predictor in triathlon
-The LSCT as a method to monitor training adaptations and overreaching
