Quick video post today, in the midst of travels and papers and other work. A few months back, I was in Boulder, Colorado, for a few days, and as is ‘obligatory’ when there, spent a few days with coach Bobby McGee, one of the more inquisitive and stimulating minds in the endurance sports.
He produced the videos below, in which I talk first about the Central Governor concept, explaining why I steered clear of the word, and what it all meant (and didn’t mean).
In the second video, I talk lactate myths and theories.
They’ve very short, just fillers really, and so for more on these concepts, particularly the anticipatory regulation of exercise, here are some articles and research papers you may be interested in:
- Recent Science of Sport article on pacing and fatigue, based on the 2013 London Marathon
- Article in the British Journal of Sports Medicine explaining a model for anticipatory regulation [cite source=doi]10.1136/bjsm.2008.050799[/cite]
- Another one I published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine article on pacing and what it means for physiology [cite source=doi]10.1136/bjsm.2009.057562[/cite]
- A recent review from Zig St Clair Gibson on the exercise ‘failure’ and its implications for performance regulation [cite source=doi]10.1007/s40279-013-0044-y[/cite]
#1 – Central governor/anticipatory regulation
#2 – the lactic acid concept
Thanks Bobby for the videos, look forward to another visit sooner rather than later!
Oh, and check out Bobby McGee’s website for more videos on training and performance.
