Show Notes

Contrary to our typical episodes where we tackle just one topic, in this episode Damian and Jason discuss tidbits of sage advice and recommendations they have provided cyclists over the years. In addition, not satisfied with just listening to ourselves talk, we’ve reached out to a few other experts to offer their own advice. Listen in to hear valuable advice from former UCI Track World and Australian National Road Champion, Michael Freiburg, along with high-performance expert and former Head of Performance at Team Sky, Simon Jones. 

Be on the lookout for more episodes like this with more experts in the near future!

Simon Jones - Coaching, science, and a post-marginal gains world

In this episode we have a conversation with performance specialist, Simon Jones. Don’t know who that is? Well, with a performance career in cycling for over 25 years there isn’t much he hasn’t done. In fact, we're sure if you’ve been a fan of cycling for any amount of time, you know of a rider or a team he’s worked with.He was once Head of Performance Support and Innovation at Team Sky, but prior to that he started out as a sports science graduate from Cardiff University and became a sports scientist with British Cycling just months later. He would go on to coach the Great Britain team pursuit riders through several Olympic cycles before taking up a job managing the Western Australia Institute of Sport, then moving to Team Sky, before his last role as AusCycling Performance Director for the last Olympic cycle.And when someone has been around a high-performance environment for as long as Simon (sorry if that makes you sound old Simon), they would have seen many things come and go - so it was nice to hear what he prioritizes in coaching and cycling performance. Herein we meander through multiple topics such as coaching, marginal gains, performance teams, training load, and more with Simon. Give this episode a listen to learn from a true veteran in cycling performance!

Evaluation of a training intervention: Does nasal breathing improve performance?

We take a dive into the nasal passage (pun intended?) and look at whether there are performance gains that can be obtained by employing nose breathing techniques. This ended up leading to a discussion around how we can evaluate training interventions and make decisions on whether they’re worth implementing for ourselves and our athletes. Episode Timestamps:2:30 How do we normally breathe during exercise?8:25 What are the claimed benefits of nose breathing over mouth breathing?9:15 Are we getting too much oxygen?21:15 What do the studies show?29:25 What level of evidence do you require to apply an intervention?38:30 If it’s free and easy, should you try it anyway?46:55 How much does air intake affect endurance performance?55:10 But the nose is a filter and humidifier, does that help?
