Max Paquette is an incredibly accomplished academic as well as Applied Scientist. Max is currently the Associate Professor of the Human Performance Centre at the University of Memphis and the Director of the Musculoskeletal Analysis Laboratory. Max's primary research interests have focused on the effects of different footwear, fatigue repetition, altered techniques and training interventions for injury prevention and performance improvement for runners. Dr Paquette has published over 60 scientific papers and consults for high schools, collegiate and world class track and field athletes and their coaches to optimize performance and reduce injury risks. It isn't just a scientific experience that has been accrued across the years, there's also that very practical application. In addition to the many hats that Max wears, Max also coaches his professional, middle distance running wife, Lauren.

During today's conversation, which we’re terming “Moving Beyond Weekly Distance”, Max Paquette shares around a commentary that he and co collaborators published in 2020, titled “Moving Beyond Weekly Distance”: Optimizing Quantification of Training Load in Runners”, and the premise of the commentary was challenging the convention of quantifying running training loads solely around mileage. This is a crucial conversation around getting the most out of your training, trying to avoid training errors and optimising your recovery and adaptation to the work that you've done. Of course, Max lays down a great physical challenge for the week and distils all of his learnings into one piece of advice as per usual.

In episode 263 of The Physical Performance Show Brad Beer shares the learnings from our Expert Editions that we've shared to date in 2021.

It's been said that repetition is the mother of all learning, and with so many great learnings coming through 2021, we thought it would be great for our learnings as people try to pursue and perform our own physical best if we didn't gloss over some of the firehose learnings that come out each and every week. But instead at least once a quarter we purposed revision of the key learnings shared to date.

As we look back on this year's expert additions and the highlights around some of the topics shared and the conversation starters that emerged, we're kicking off with Episode 252 that featured expert Rory Darkins, Psychology Researcher and Mental Skills Coach, an episode that we dubbed Positive Psychology for the Endurance Athlete. One of the things that really struck a chord for listeners was the difference between harmonious and obsessive passion, how to avoid our own sporting pursuits and physical performance pursuits consuming us and becoming an obsessive type passion, which can have some pitfalls.

Emma recently released her autobiography “Hard Wired Life, Death and Triathlon”. It's a book that I recommend for the bookshelf of every endurance sports enthusiast, and particularly every triathlon lover. Growing up as a triathlete in the 90s Emma Carney was certainly a name and a presence gracing the covers of triathlon magazines, TV screens wherever the triathlon enthusiast looked.

Emma came from a junior running / athletics background, where she represented Australia twice at the world cross country championships in 1994 and 1995, and then again in the Ekiden Relay in 1993 and 1994.  You'll hear today how Emma turned to the sport of triathlon and in just 18 months took out the 1994 world ITU international triathlon union championship in Auckland by a record margin at that stage of 2 minutes and 12 seconds.

Following that very impressive international debut taking out a world title, Emma recorded seven ITU World Cup wins in 1996 and collectively across her career 19 World Cup wins. From June 1995 to April 1997, Emma recorded an unbroken string of 12 straight ITU World Cup wins. Emma was the World Cup champion in 1995, 1996 and 1997. And of course the ITU now World Triathlon world champion in 1994 and then again in 1997. Subsequently, Emma was inducted into the Australian sporting Hall of Fame in 2016.

On this featured performer episode, you'll hear Emma truly share around the highs, the lows and the learnings from what was a remarkable career and a remarkable chapter in Australian triathlon and World Triathlon history. Emma shares on the early days her rules of competition training philosophies, and now as her attention turns to coaching up and coming triathlon talent, her ambitions to see Australia secure Olympic Gold with her podium project and the burning reason behind that.  You'll hear me touch on the controversial 2000 Olympic triathlon Australia team selection snub of which you'll also be able to read the full documented history in hardwired life death and travel and Emma's recently released autobiography. This really is an episode that epitomizes the highs lows and learnings.

By way of bio, Inigo is an avid researcher, sports science practitioner and a coach applying his academic learnings. Since 1992 Indigo has been devoted to the research of tapering and peaking for sports performance. He's published many peer reviewed scientific articles, many book chapters and five books. As a sports physiologist, Inigo works closely with elite athletes and coaches in a variety of individual and team sports. Inigo currently serves as a Head of Sports Science for Spanish Aquatics and has previously served roles with the Australian Institute of Sport from 2003 to 2004. In 2005, Inigo worked as a physiologist and trainer of the professional road bicycle Racing Team Euskaltel Euskadi, he's also coached world class triathletes including Olympians so you get a sense for Inigo’s pedigree and expertise on this topic of tapering.

Now what can you expect from today's episode? Well, we've all tried to either conduct our own tapers or have had tapers programmed for us from coaches and we all know that sometimes they go well, sometimes they don't. So through today's learnings, you'll be able to extract the scientific body of work the evidence based best practices, when it comes to tapering.  Inigo will share the definition of tapering and peaking, outline the main aim of tapering, share why if a taper goes well you can expect up to a 3% improvement between pre and post taper performances. Inigo outlines the three variables that can be manipulated with a taper, training intensity, training volume and training frequency. Inigo shares from a 2011 landmark scientific review, the best practices when it comes to Endurance Sports tapers in terms of length, what to do with reducing volume and what not to do when it comes to tinkering with intensity and training frequency. Inigo explores nutrition and hydration practices through a taper and outlines why it is key to arrive at your racing body mass at the start of the taper, rather than at the end.

Finally, Inigo outlines what actually occurs when we taper in terms of physiological effects and then what occurs at the end of a season when we take a break, the de-training effects and then what we can expect with the retraining effects physiologically, as we return to training. There's the single piece of advice and of course, the physical challenge for the week.

On this episode, I share with you a conversation I recently had with Gold Coast based ear nose and throat surgeon Dr Dan Robinson on all things navigating nasal obstruction. One in three people experience nasal obstruction.

Listen in as Dr Dan Robinson shares around the different types of nasal obstruction, how nasal obstruction presents in both children and fully grown adults, the different types of obstructive sleep apnea; central and peripheral and how each of those presents, the physiology of breathing and why when we exercise most of it occurs through the mouth yet that's reversed when we sleep with the bulk of breathing happening through our nose. Dr Dan shares around nasal anatomy including the nasal valve and why it is so important and importantly how to treat nasal obstruction and the treatment pathway or sieve as Dr Dan Robinson refers to it as that exists all the way from nasal spray through to devices through to surgical procedures.

Gustav Iden is the 70.3 2019 Triathlon World Champion. Several weeks ago, Gustav Iden took the spoils and victory in what was arguably the most stacked and deep triathlon long course field in the history of the sport by taking out the PTO Championships at Challenge Daytona.

Gustav is from Bergen, Norway, where he trains alongside the Norwegian powerhouse team including prior featured guests from Episode 117 - Kristian Blummenfelt and Triathlon Norway Head Coach and Sports Director of the Norwegian Triathlon Federation, Arild Tveiten, who we featured on episode 224.

In addition to Gustav's success across the 70.3 and long course world of triathlon, Gustav was also part of the historic Norwegian Podium Clean Sweep at the World Triathlon Series leg held in Bermuda in 2019, where he took out third place. In 2019 Gustav was also fourth across the line in the Tokyo Olympic test event.

In this episode, you'll hear Gustav outline his top three tips for each of the disciplines of triathlon swim, bike and run. Gustav shares why winning is truly a choice, along with an incredible story about the Taiwanese hat that he picked up off the side of the road in Thailand that has gone on to create quite a stir in Taiwan and also landing Gustav a great commercial partner in Giant Bicycles. Gustav shares his training philosophy around intensity control and volume, talks about pre race nerves, survives the physical performance round and issues a fantastic physical challenge for the week.

In episode 248 of The Physical Performance Show Brad Beer shares a conversation with Rachel Neylan, Olympic & Professional Cyclist, 2012 UCI World Championship Silver on this featured performer episode.

Rachel represented Australia at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016, which was a combination of a childhood dream. In 2012 Rachel picked up a silver medal in the UCI World Cycling Championships. Rachel bases herself out of Europe where she has picked up multiple UCI World Championship event victories and as we roll around to Tokyo 2021, is looking to secure her second Australian Olympic team berth.

Aside from Rachel's sparkling sporting resume, Rachel’s back story is inspiring as she took up cycling later in life at 25 years of age. After graduating as a physiotherapist working with Rowing Australia, before taking a bold leap of faith in embarking on a journey to become a world class Australian athlete and ultimately an Olympian.

During this episode, Rachel shares about the top three characteristics for performance, why using the word “talent” can be so dangerous, persisting through adversity, seizing opportunities, and Rachel survives the physical performance round, issues a wonderful physical challenge for the week along with a further challenge to drop the label ‘women's cycling’, as Rachel says it's one sport, female and male athletes, but we need to stop using the phrase women's cycling.

If you are a keen follower of Australian athletics, Jessica Hull needs no introduction. Earlier in 2020, Jessica went on an Australian national record setting streak, kicking it off with a 5000m new national record of 14:43.80 at the diamond league in Monaco, followed one month later by the national record in the 1500m 4:00.42 set at the diamond league in Berlin. And then just less than two weeks later, Jessica ran another Australian National record in the 3000m in Doha 8:36.03. Now the 5000m record was an 18 year record held by a prior featured performer of the show, Benita Willis, Episode 20 and Jess’s 1500m time has her poised to be potentially the first Australian woman to ever run sub four minutes in the coming years for the 1500m.

Needless to say, Jessica is a huge talent and on this episode, you'll hear Jess share around the highs, lows and learnings, the origins of her athletic days, the role of her family and support team in helping Jess perform at her physical best, the influence of time spent on scholarship at the University of Oregon in the US, the role of strength and conditioning in Jess’s performances, fueling for the work required and Jess survives the physical performance round and issues a doubleheader on the physical challenge for the week. Here is my conversation with Australian National record holder, the 1500m, 3000m and 5000m Jessica Hull.
