On this episode, we feature Rian Doris who is the co founder and the Chief Operating Officer at the Flow Research collective, an organisation he co founded along with New York Times bestselling author of “Stealing Fire and the Rise of Superman”, Steven Kotler.  

Rian holds an Honours in philosophy from the Trinity College, Dublin and is currently working through a Master's in Applied Neuroscience from King's College in London. Rian has led research initiatives with Imperial College London, UCLA, Deloitte and has worked with multiple Fortune 100 companies implementing peak performance strategies in a consulting capacity.  Rian has also led research across a number of research initiatives with Dr Dan Siegel, Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA, along with research initiatives across the Imperial College of London, the University of Southern California, the University of Zurich, and Claremont Graduate University, and with the listenership of this show being made up of people performing and seeking their best performance.

During this episode, Rian shares around this concept of flow. We've all heard of it, but what does it actually mean? And is it possible to manipulate our environment to boost the likelihood of entering into that magical flow state. Rian shares around the characteristics of non ordinary states of consciousness, the concept of flow triggers, the neurobiology, neuro chemistry and neuro physiologically of what's happening when we are in a flow state, and why researchers have suggested that a 4% difference between challenge and skills is optimal for producing flow.

On this episode, we discuss with Dr Margo Mountjoy all about RED-S (Relative Energy Deficiency in Sports).  Now the consequences of an athlete being in this state can include not only performance detriments but also health side effects.

In 2014, the International Olympic Committee led by today's featured expert Dr Margo Mountjoy, published a consensus statement entitled “Beyond the female athlete triad relative energy deficiency in sport”, and this paper explored the syndrome of RED-S being impaired physiology caused by relative energy deficiency resulting impairments was stated to include effects on metabolic right menstrual function, bone health, immunity, protein synthesis and cardiovascular health with the key driving factor of this syndrome relative energy deficiency in sport being low energy availability.

During this episode Dr Margo Mountjoy shares around the origins of coining the phrase relative energy efficiency in sport as she worked with the IOC medical committee, we explore the signs and symptoms of RED-S for athletes. Dr Mountjoy outlines the incidence and prevalence of relative energy deficiency in sport amongst endurance athletes and athletes in general and the prevalence has been reported to be up to 60% amongst athletes in endurance events.  Dr Mountjoy outlines how to screen for RED-S, the treatment of RED-S once it's been identified, how to lose weight and stay in energy balance, returning to sport post pregnancy and of course there's the issuing of this week's physical challenge as well.

On this episode, Associate Professor Patrick Wilson PhD covers the often unsexy but so necessary world of how to navigate our athletes gut. Patrick recently authored a wonderful book that I feel has a place in every athlete's library, The Athletes Gut: the inside science of digestion, nutrition and stomach distress.

In this expert edition, Patrick explores gut physiology, gut anatomy, the remarkable trainability of our gut, gut issues and symptoms, what goes wrong and why, the influence of psychology of the athlete on gut function, hydration, fuelling to ensure energy requirements are met and the consequences of being low on energy availability, hydro gel technology with regards to carbohydrate absorption, FODMAPs, salt/sodium loading and ingestion while training and racing and so much more.

Patrick is an assistant professor of exercise science and directs the human performance laboratory at the Old Dominion University. He earned his PhD in exercise physiology from the University of Minnesota and completed postdoctoral training in sports nutrition at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Patrick has authored more than 40 scientific articles that span the disciplines of exercise science, sports nutrition, and health.

During this episode we feature Catriona Bisset who will share around her highs, lows and many learnings from her career to date. Catriona shares around dealing with athlete pressures, navigating this difficult time that we all find ourselves in, working through an eating disorder as an adolescent athlete, which ultimately combined with the pressures she was dealing with led to a 10 year hiatus from the sport. Upon her return, Catriona became the 2019 Australian 800m champion.

Catriona shares around the concept of being the CEO of our own bodies, the importance of strength and conditioning for both performance optimisation and also injury prevention and rehabilitation, overcoming pre racing anxieties, switching our minds off when we race, the concept of treating our bodies with kindness. And of course, Catriona survived the physical performance round and issues a fantastic physical challenge for the week.

Dr Amit Mistry is a Clinical Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Medicine, he is the Chair of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Sport & Exercise Special Interest Group and he is a Clinical Sport and Exercise Psychiatrist from the UK.

Dr Mistry is the co-author of a recently released book, “Case Studies in Sports Psychiatry”, which is a must for anyone working in the field of sport and exercise.  Dr Mistry shares many learnings pertinent to every athlete, every coach, every health and sport practitioner. 

Topics explored include: 

  • Exercise Addiction – What is it and how is it differentiated from a healthy undertaking of sporting activity. When Dr Mistry shared the characteristics of exercise addiction, I’ll put my hand up and say I ticked most of the boxes.
  • What is the Role of Perfectionism in Sport – when is it helpful and when does it become problematic or potentially maladaptive.
  • Depression and anxiety in athletes, what are the warning signs and what are the ways these conditions can be best treated and stewarded.

In other learnings include the topics of eating disorders and disordered eating, event anxiety and ADHD and its role in sporting performance.
