Professor Stuart Warden is an avid runner.  Academically and professionally Dr Stuart Warden serves as a Professor of Physical Therapy and the Associate Dean for Research within the Indiana University School of Health & Human Sciences. Professor Stu embarked on a Post Doctorate at the Australian Institute of Sport and Indiana University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, following graduation from the University of Melbourne with a Physiotherapy Degree in 2001. Professor Warden's research interests focus on the form and function of the musculoskeletal system, in-particular the lifelong contribution of physical activity to skeletal health. Professor Stu has contributed to over 170 peer reviewed publications and currently serves as an Associate Editor for The Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy and also as an Editorial Board Member for Bone, Journal of Bone and Mineral Research and the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport.

Professor Stuart Warden alongside colleagues Brent Edwards and Dr Rich Willy released a landmark commentary by way of a scientific paper titled "Preventing Bone Stress Injuries in Runners with Optimal Workload". It was published in February 2021 and it's a must read for any Coach, Athlete or Practitioner working in the field of endurance sports.

In this episode we dive deep into its contents:

  • What the author's mean by bone workload
  • Optimal workload to induce skeletal adaptation
  • The fact that not all athletes have good skeletons
  • Why it is that distance running does not build good bones
  • How we can use periodisation to help build more bone
  • The effects of early specialisation with sport and the contribution to bone stress injury risk
  • Why it is that optimising bone structure is critical and how it only develops before puberty
  • How it is that we can positively affect our bone density and bone architecture through loading with multiple direction jumps and why it is only during puberty that this is possible
  • How we can positively increase the robustness of our skeleton through bone centric exercises
  • How we can try and minimise training errors to avoid the onset of a bone stress injury, a stress fracture a stress reaction or similar

Dr Ashar Khan is a Specialist Psychiatrist, Director and Founder of Queensland ADHD and Neurosciences Clinic. Dr Khan first recognised the vast prevalence of undetected ADHD during his addiction training. Dr Khan observed similar patterns of lack of recognition, early detection and diagnosis, a one-stop specialist platform for early diagnostic detection and treatment intervention specifically for ADHD, autism or other specific learning disorders. Queensland ADHD & Neurosciences Clinic was set up as a novel unique clinic allowing top experts in neuro-developmental disorders using a cutting-edge scientific approach in keeping with modern research and international guidelines.

Dr Khan is a Sub-Specialist in Neurocognitive Disorders for children, adolescents and adults, offering expertise in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders including Aspergers, specific learning deficits and the dual diagnosis of Neurocognitive Developmental Disorders co-existing with addiction behaviour.

During this episode Dr Khan outlines the prevalence of ADHD in society and amongst athletes, how to diagnose ADHD and what are the three key attributes or characteristics of the ADHD brain. Dr Khan shares around the biology of the ADHD brain and explains why it is that the ADHD brain will always crave dopamine, why ADHD brains are not necessarily addicted to exercise, but rather will display or exhibit addictive behaviours and why it's important to make that distinction. Dr Khan explains the pros to being able to hyper focus that come alongside the ADHD brain, and the cons and he shares why it is that ADHD sufferers so often experience depression and anxiety.

In episode 279 of The Physical Performance Show Brad Beer shares a conversation with Greg Bennett (OLY) 2002 & 2003 ITU World Cup Triathlon Series Champion on this Featured Performer episode.

Greg competed professionally across 28 years from the age of 18 to 44.  In that time, Greg has amassed a sporting resume like very few triathletes in history. Greg is the highest placed male finisher in an Olympic Games event for Australia, finishing fourth at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. Greg started 82 ITU World Cup events, won six of those and was on the podium 23 times. Greg represented Australia at 13 World Championships at an elite level, three World Duathlon Championships with a silver medal in 2002 and two Goodwill Games. Greg won the world's richest ever triathlon prize purse in 2007 by clean sweeping five out of five for the Lifetime Fitness Grand Slam.

In 2003 and 2007 Greg was voted Triathlete of the Year by Triathlete Magazine. Greg has been voted as a Top 15 Greatest Triathlete of all time by Inside Triathlon Magazine in 2012. In 2002 and 2003 Greg was the ITU World Cup Series Overall Champion.

Greg touches on the power of absolute passion, why it's important to hone your craft through racing, along with the dark days of narrowly missing Sydney Olympic Games 2000 selection for the Australian Triathlon team.

Greg shares around why it is important to turn up and do the work every day, why something is better than nothing and as Greg states week in and week out on his very own podcast ‘the Greg Bennett Show’ why it is that success comes to those who endure for just a moment more. Greg issues a great physical challenge, top three tips for longevity and an incredible story about the hardest training session.

Amy shares around how we can optimise our skeletal or bone health across our lifespan, what can we do pre puberty, what can we do as adults and what can we do post menopause and as Amy states MANopause for the blokes in order to ensure we have optimal skeletal health in lower likelihood or mobility associated with low bone density or poor bone health such as osteopenia or osteoporosis.

Amy works alongside former featured expert of the show Professor Belinda Beck. Amy has outputted greater than 20 publications in her burgeoning research career. In one landmark study, which she co collaborated with her Griffith University Research colleagues, Professor Belinda Beck and Associate Professor Ben Weeks was called the LIFTMOR M trial, this trial explored the effects of supervised high intensity resistance and impact training on the bone geometry and strength in middle aged and older men with low bone mass. Amy and her research team at Griffith University Men's Health Institute discovered a real dearth in the literature around the role of exercise in helping men with low bone mass post MANopause. 

Amy outlines the role that exercise plays in terms of adapting our skeletons, the keys in optimizing our skeletal health pre puberty, why it's important to look at maintaining maximising bone health as an adult and then ways that we can fight the decline post menopause or MANopause in terms of our bone health. Amy shares why high intensity low repetition exercise is so important and why high repetition low resistance exercise doesn't produce the same positive results on bone adaptation. Amy encourages us that it is never too late to improve our bone health.

Mike Crawley is a 220 marathoner, who has competed internationally for Scotland and Great Britain. Mike is currently an Assistant Professor in Social Anthropology at Durham University, in compiling Out Of Thin Air, he spent 15 months in Addis Ababa in the surrounding regions of Ethiopia integrating into the running lifestyle and ways of the Ethiopian running culture.

Dr Mike Crawley will share what he determined to be the heart and soul of Ethiopians running culture, he shares the rich history and institutional support that was forged off the back of Abebe Bikila’s heroic and historic 1960 barefoot victory on the streets of Rome at the 1960 Rome Olympic Games. At the time, that was the first gold medal won by a sub-Saharan African and off the back of that the running culture in Ethiopia has really ensued and flourished.

Mike shares around how dreaming is still very much alive in Ethiopia, beliefs around running surfaces, running locations, rest and recovery, fueling, and the curious yet compelling habits of zigzagging when running, avoiding the road and so much more.

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.
