In this video, Iñigo San-Millán, Ph.D. and Peter Attia, M.D. discuss zone 2 training and its importance in cycling. Zone 2 training includes training at a power output that is lower than FTP, but still high enough to be sustainable for a long period of time. By knowing a rider's capabilities and their limits, coaches can plan strategies accordingly for the next day's race.
Iñigo San-Millán, Ph.D. and Peter Attia, M.D. discuss Zone 2 training, which is a type of training that is meant to help athletes achieve their maximum fat oxidation. They discuss how ketosis can affect fat oxidation and how the metabolic card can be inaccurate when measuring oxygen uptake in athletes. They also discuss how carbohydrate and fat intake vary among athletes and how adjusting the metabolic card can help provide more accurate information about an athlete's metabolic state.
This video discusses the importance of Zone 2 training, which is a type of endurance training that is shorter in duration and uses higher intensity levels. The presenter recommends that individuals try to do this type of training between three to four days a week, and that those who are new to an exercise program might not need as much frequency.
In this video, Iñigo San-Millán, Ph.D. and Peter Attia, M.D. discuss the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in the development of diabetes and metabolic syndrome. They suggest that the model for studying diabetes should not be the healthy, sedentary individual, and discuss the potential benefits of metformin for mitochondrial function and performance.
