In this episode we look into some of the hottest new technology in the endurance market. The VO2 Master Analyser is the world's first wearable, easy to use metabolic analyser. We speak with founder Dr Andrew Sellars, Medical Doctor and self proclaimed passionate physiologist,  and co-founder and advisor Computer Scientist Peter O'Brien.

Many will have seen this device on the faces of Current World 70.3 triathlon champion Gustav Iden and his Norwegian counterpart Kristian Blummenfelt, current Olympic World Triathlon Series and World Ironman Champion who is regularly seen with the VO2 Master Analyser on his face during both indoor and outdoor training sessions.

Peter O'Brien and Dr Andrew Sellars share around the development of this technology and the reason why they felt it was necessary to develop the world's first wearable and portable metabolic analyser. They outline why it is important for athletes to be able to measure their VO2 Max and their VO2 along with respiratory dynamics in order to make wise training decisions.

Chris Blomfield-Brown is the Performance and Technology Lead at Core Body Temperature, manufacturing devices to help athletes of all levels measure their core body temperature and through thermo regulation science achieve their physical best. These devices made by core body temperature are being used extensively within the ranks of the world cycling peloton. Chris outlines many athletes and teams and Federation's leading into Tokyo 2020 were using the devices to assist the athletes with their heat acclimation strategies.

In this episode Chris discusses physiology and the role of thermo regulation within sports, how we can monitor our core body temperature and why it matters, the relationship between warming up, losing power and decrement in performance, and the concept of thermal load and how we can all apply it to our training to optimise outcomes.

Emma Jeffcoat is an Australian Olympic Triathlete who made her debut at the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games.

In this episode Emma discusses the poignant issue of comments that can destroy athletes and candidly shares some of the commentary that she's received throughout her developing triathlon career and how that’s affected her over the years psychologically, health wise and performance wise.

What's so great about Emma's story is how she is going from strength to strength in showing those critics that when it comes to performance, ill-informed commentary and beliefs around body composition have no place.

Jenny Valentish, Author and Journalist, has just released a new book “Everything Harder than Everyone Else”, why some of us push our bodies to extremes.

Jenny is the author of the acclaimed Woman of Substances, a regular contributor to The Sydney Morning Herald and the Saturday Paper and a former Editor of Timeout Melbourne, and Triple J's J Mag.

When Jenny wrote her book about addiction, she noticed that people who treated drug taking like an Olympic sport would often hurl themselves into a pursuit such as a marathon or ultra-marathon upon getting sober. What stayed constant was the need to push their boundaries.

The book follows people doing the things that most people couldn't, wouldn't or shouldn't. The interviewees in Jenny's book lead Jenny on a journey through psychology, endurance and the power of obsession, revealing what we can learn about the human condition.

I'd call this a handbook into analysing why you do what you do as an endurance athlete.

In 2011 world cycling Pro Team Cannondale picked up Cam and Cam experienced two have the World Grand Tours who was the joyride Italia and the Vuelta a España in the Cannondale team colours. Cam also spent time racing for Team Liquid Gas and Team Lotto, both world leading teams in the professional cycling peloton at the time. Then in 2015, Cam turned his attention to Ironman Triathlon, turning pro in 2016. And going on to set the Ironman World Championship Black Horse record at Kona in 2018. Cam worked diligently on his run leg the following year to finish fifth place at the 2019 Ironman World Triathlon championships, but then in 2020 Cam was pulled back into the world professional cycling peloton when he donned the team Ineos Grenadiers colours to fill a vacant roster spot instantly impressing team Ineos Grenadiers with his performances and work ethic. Cam has since road two world tours with team Ineos Grenadiers, the Djaro and also the Volta Spania. Looking ahead cam has his eyes firmly set on the Ironman Triathlon World Championship title and given his pedigree we must all watch this space.
