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.

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.

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.

JF Esculier is the Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia. He is the Head of Research and Development and Speaker at the Running Clinic and in industry circles you can’t go past good running injury research without JF Esculier being somewhere amongst it.

JF is listed as one of the 15 World Class Experts at the upcoming The Physical Performance Show co- hosted Master’s Athletes Online One Day Symposium. We thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase this conversation with JF Esculier around a topic that few people know more about on the planet and that is the relationship of running and knee/hip osteoarthritis.

In this conversation, you’ll hear JF share around the misconceptions about running and knee osteoarthritis, the findings of current research into the relationship between running with known symptomatic and asymptomatic knee osteoarthritis. JF issues guidelines on what to do if you do have known symptomatic knee osteoarthritis to promote the best future of your joints and issues a great physical challenge feel the week.
