In this interview with That Triathlon Show on scientifictriathlon.com, svexa CSO Dr Filip Larsen discusses research conducted by him and his team on finding the line between enough and too much training using various physiological and cellular markers, and how to take these findings from the lab and apply them in the field.
In this Episode you’ll learn about:
Effects of intensified training on performance and cardiovascular parameters
Effects on mitochondrial parameters, including impaired mitochondrial respiration
Effects on glucose tolerance and substrate utilisation
Effects on glycolytic pathway and muscle glycogen adaptations
Implications for training, including when and how to do high-intensity training, how often to plan in rest cycles among load cycles, and more
In addition to his role as svexa’s Chief Science Officer, Dr Filip Larsen is Associate Professor, Swedish School of Sports & Health Sciences, and a Physiologist for Swedish National Orienteering Team.
