Protein for Cyclists, VO2Max, Training Stress and More – Ask a Cycling Coach 349

Coach Chad, Amber Pierce, and Hannah Finchamp join Coach Jonathan for a deep dive into protein for cyclists, discussing how much endurance athletes of all kinds should be taking in, if you should ingest it on the bike, plant-based alternatives and more. We’ll also dig deep into VO2Max training, training stress and much more.

Tune in Thursday at 8:00am Pacific!

Since sex-differences were mentioned in the episode but no references are provided, I want to link to this recent review: Recommendations and Nutritional Considerations for Female Athletes: Health and Performance

I think @ambermalika made her first proper mom joke on this podcast. :+1: :rofl:
We are here for it!

This is all I could think about during protein discussion.

I found the protein deep dive really illuminating. I have probably heard most of the comments before to but to get them in one place was very helpful.

I just need to change my eating habits for breakfast now.

One of the recent episodes discussed protein timing post workout and mentioned waiting an hour or so for the gut to stabilize. Does anyone know if that was this episode? Want to relisten to that section after a recent issue involving hard run and then serious GI issues after the fact.
