54 | Overtraining Warning Signs and Remedies.
Dr Will has had to admit he's overtrained himself. This week, Matt and Will dicuss overtraining while figuring out where Will went wrong. Overtraining is a blanket term that describes an athletes training state in which stress has occurred without adequate rest.

53 | Training Zones: Science, Simplicity and Effectiveness
Training zones are a useful tool for prescribing training and intensity. When coaches build workouts and plans, training zones make prescription and analysis of training simple and effective.

Will and Matt talk through the science behind zone training,  what each zone represents physiologically and their purposes within a training plan. Also in the show, Will talks through his new addiction to Zwift and Matt admits to being a superficial strava rider.

38 | Strava: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Strava, social media for endurance athletes. Last week, Matt crashed chasing a Strava KOM (King of the Mountain), and Strava released their annual report, so we thought we'd go through the pros and cons of using Strava. There's no doubt Strava has a lot of great benefits, but the social media side of things can cause athletes to train for others rather than for themselves. Will became a Dad!!

36 | How To Monitor and Analyze Your Training
How much training did you do last week? Most people will answer in terms of time or distance. Unfortunately, time and distance are not the best indicators of training load. We discuss how using training stress score (TSS) on trainingpeaks or Relative Effort on Strava can help you to improve and avoid injury. The international governing body of cycling, the UCI, have announced the “bike olympics” to be held in 2023, Glasgow, Scotland. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

43 | Pace Yourself to the Perfect Race
Pacing in endurance sport is one of the most essential aspects of performance. Regardless of your ability, if you start the race beyond your level of fitness you will slow down at the end. The severity of how much you slow down (blow up) will depend on the race duration and how far beyond your ability you went at the start. We discuss different pacing strategies and how to implement them in your next training session or race.

29 | Training with a Heart Rate Monitor
Heart rate training is Will’s favourite way to monitor training intensity. Matt disagrees but concedes heart rate has its place.

27 | What is Going on When You Taper for Your Race?
Matt is back from the Eurobike trade show, and he has some stories to tell!  Will has his 100km ultramarathon run this weekend, so the boys discuss tapering and what Will is doing to ensure he turns up fresh on race day. Tapering can be a hard concept for athletes to grasp since it requires you to do less. The key to a good taper is to focus on your race and what is required to race well. Getting to the start line feeling fresh and ready is 100 times better than arriving only to realise you’ve done too much.

24 | Training for Enduro Mountain Biking with Dr Matt From MTB PhD
Dr Matt is giving you the very best advice on training for enduro mountain bike events. Enduro mountain biking consists of multiple timed downhill segments that add up to the riders overall time. Not only do riders need to be fast down the hill but they also need to ride from one section to another. When these events are held over two days, this can amount to some very big days on the bike.  Dr Matt teaches us that fitness is more important than speed but skill trumps everything. Also in the show, Will talks about his first running injury in forever and how he’s dealing with it with only four weeks until his 100km race! Dr Matt wins a mountain bike race with the help of some young speedsters.
