High Fat Low Carb Diets

Today I’m kicking off a new blog segment called the “Journal Club.” 

In the Journal Club, we’ll examine a single research paper that holds significance to you as a cyclist. Whenever possible, I’ll select open-access research and include a downloadable link to a personally annotated PDF so you can dig into a full-text version and follow along.

In today’s Journal Club we’ll check out a brand new paper examining the performance implications of a Low Carb High Fat or “keto” diet. Is going “keto” likely to improve your cycling? Let’s find out.

To Coach is to Teach

I’ve been teaching or coaching in some form since shortly after my sophomore year in college.

Youth soccer camps, basketball, physical education, and health. When I first started coaching, technology resided at the fringes of each of my coaching relationships. Fast-forward nearly twenty years, and the core of my cycling coaching is rooted in technology.

The Language of Training

In the last decade, I’ve learned that prescribing workouts (the “what” of training) is likely the easiest part of coaching.

Sure, programming, planning, and periodizing take some level of knowledge and skill, but quality differences between training plans never matter more than a cyclist’s ability to nail the number one objective in training: consistency.
