- Athletes are humans and the human aspect needs to always be considered, especially when you are thinking about “coaching”.
- The physiological, metabolic and biochemical profiles of triathletes can vary a lot, but they are also adaptable over time. You need to consider several layers of physiology before making conclusions, and then, training applications on such profiles.
- Many different fueling strategies exist for long endurance events like triathlons – yet, ALL of them are trying to maximize the efficiency of your carbohydrate delivery, as well as absorption.
- To help athletes approach their sport with curiosity, you need to develop a culture of working with them towards positive feedback on these mini n=1 experiments – but find something that gives you “bigger” gains first!
