Part 5 of Prof Noakes series is now posted. Part 5 introduces Noakes’ ground-breaking integrated neuromuscular recruitment model of exercise physiology.
Part 3 – Lactate Threshold In parts one and two of this series, I dissected the theory of VO2max and explained the significant challenges that have been mounted against it. In order to answer these challenges, physiologists have advanced several … Continue reading
Part 2 – The Challenges to VO2max If someone offered you a guaranteed way to increase your VO2max by 25%, would you jump at the chance? If so, what effect do you think it would have on your performance? Is … Continue reading
If you’ve read much about the subject of running, you are probably aware that most modern training programs are very similar. The current thought on how to best train could be summed up with the slogan “run more”. Certainly each … Continue reading
Based on the available research I believe that muscles exert the strongest influence on endurance performance. In this article I will attempt to prove that muscles, not oxygen, are ultimately responsible for your endurance performance. This is a tall order … Continue reading
If you’ve been involved in running for any length of time you have surely been exposed to the concepts of aerobic and anaerobic training. These two terms are firmly entrenched in the running community, having been in use for more … Continue reading
The most enduring model of endurance physiology is the Cardiovascular/Anaerobic model. Initially suggested by British physiologists A.V. Hill and associates in the mid-1920s, this model has been promoted by scientists, coaches, and athletes world-wide for nearly 80 years. This model … Continue reading
