Mile High Endurance Podcast

Mile High Endurance Podcast is recorded in the Rocky Mountain front range area in Denver, Colorado. 55 miles to the north is the triathlon 'Mecca' of Boulder, home of some of the most prominent pros in triathlon and related sports. 56 miles to the south is the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. The 110 mile stretch between Boulder and Colorado Springs is one of the fittest and athletic populated areas in the world. I share these statistics, not so much to brag but to give you the listener context for what the culture and vibe is here in the Mile High area. ​The objective of the Mile High Endurance Podcast is to connect you to the triathlon community and empower you to achieve your triathlon and fitness goals. Each month we will take subjects that you are interested in and connect your interests with news, expert interviews, and information about services and products in a way that inform your decisions to achieve your full potential in the sport.

Our interview this week is with coach and nutrition expert Bob Seebohar.  As you'll hear in the interview, we are going to explore trying to get more efficient with our fueling through periodized nutrition.  Our guest Bob Seebohar is the author of Metabolic Efficiency Training and the Metabolic Efficiency Recipe book.  We are building on our knowledge from the CU Sports Medicine work we did a few weeks ago.  To be clear, this is not a "pivot" but a "build" on knowledge, adding layers of information to help you fuel yourself for success.

Thanks to last week's guests, coach Matt Bottrill. Matt is the cycling coach for professional triathletes Timo Bracht, Lucy Charles, Rachel Joyce and Tim Don.  Matt shared his experience of frequenting the podium at the British Nation Time Trial Championship podium from years 2004-2013 where he was mixing it up regularly with  Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins. If you go to the website you will see his killer aero form.

Bob is a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, the former Director of Sports Nutrition for the University of Florida and most recently served as a sport dietitian for the US Olympic Committee.

 Bob has a bachelor's degree in Exercise and Sports Science, a master's degree in Health and Exercise Science and a second master's degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition. He is a registered dietitian, exercise physiologist, NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, USA Triathlon Level III Elite Coach and a USA Triathlon Youth/Junior coach. Being an out of the box thinker, Bob created the concepts of Nutrition Periodization™ and Metabolic Efficiency Training.

Bob has worked with a variety of athletes from sports including triathlon, duathlon, ultra-running/cycling, track and field, marathon, mountain biking, road and track cycling, cross country, swimming, and more.

  • The Halo Sport from Halo Neuroscience will help you learn the technique and form to get faster.  You wear the Halo Headset for 20 minutes and use the paired app on your phone to do what they call "neural priming".  The headset looks like Beats headphones, the top band has plates that you moisten.  When you start the "neural priming" from the app, the plates conduct electrical wave stimulation of the motor cortex part of the brain which puts it into a state of hyper plasticity, which simply means that the brain can make neural connections faster and help you learn quicker.

 

Motor skills rely on the brain to send signals to the correct muscles and parts of muscles in the right order. Through plasticity, your brain is able to ensure that your neurons are working together for a precise result

 

Endurance relies on the motor cortex to repeat an action for an extended period of time. Each time you take a step, swim a stroke, or pedal a bike, your brain and your muscles consume energy. Via plasticity, your training leads to more efficient movements, reducing the energy cost of each action and allowing you to endure for a longer period of time.

Strength relies on the motor cortex to ensure that your muscle fibers are contracting together and not competing with each other. Powerful output requires the coordination of the many thousands of neurons that activate a group of primary and synergist muscles. With plasticity, the brain learns to contract more useful muscle fibers and relax opposing fibers, allowing you to lift more.
