Anyone listen to this. All about raising FatMax, potentially very interesting but I felt the podcast could have done with serious editing; veered off in way too many directions
It’s about raising FatMax and then we have this discussion on how not all Vo2 intervals are the same; and the host clearly was out of his depth
Linked to the (IMO) harsh complaint about Jonathan interrup[ting Chad too much; clearly Jonathan also knows a lot and wants to share. This host (apologies) does not - sometimes a host knows more than they appear and act dumb to make the guest better explain things. Alas in this case it’s clear the host does not know about excercise physiology and thus cant ‘check’ Steve when conversation veers…
Anyway I digress; a lot of what Steve said made sense; and I agree too many people chase ever higher FTP numbers when a better route (for say a Fondo riding) would be increasing power at sub threshold levels.
But very confused on some of the specifics; Steve mentioned ideal FatMax was Threshold power (!) but then also tempo power and then a great goal was endurance power. Clearly these are 3 wildly different zones
Also in terms of practical application he recommends 3*20 min sweetspot but at a 83% HR cap (is that .83 of HR Max?)
It’s a very interesting podcast; but left me with more questions than answers
