Exercise physiologist and endurance coach Jason Boynton leads us through an introductory presentation of how to approach our sport critically.
Abstract: Athletes who participate in endurance sports are constantly bombarded by claims that one thing or another will improve their performance. Certainly all of the claims we hear cannot be true, so the discussion becomes how do we evaluate the claims about nutrition, training, recovery, and technology in our sport. Making correct determinations in regards to these claims can potentially increase performance by allowing us to utilize what works while at the same time saving time and money by bypassing things that don’t. This talk was adapted from a USA Cycling webinar entitled: Applied Skepticism in Cycling: A Modality for an Improved Sport.
