Browning runs equal fastest 100m on Australian soil

Sydney 21-year-old Rohan Browning has stormed to the equal fastest 100m time by an Australian on home soil and the fastest by an Aussie for 12 years when he clocked 10.08 last night at the Queensland Track Classic. It is a time only Matt Shirvington and national record holder Patrick Johnson have bettered.

Characterising the plasma metabolome during 14 days of live-high, train-low simulated altitude: a metabolomic approach

The primary aim of this study was to determine the influence of 14 days of normobaric hypoxic simulated altitude exposure at 3000 m on the human plasma metabolomic profile. At a Glance: Over 200 hrs of moderate simulated altitude exposure results in individual variability in measured metabolites during the adaptive phase Altitude alters multiple metabolic pathways and the time course of these pathways is different over 14 days of altitude exposure Metabolomics may provide more detailed information about the physiological adaptations associated with moderate altitude training   The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of 14 days of normobaric hypoxic simulated altitude exposure at 3000 m on the human plasma metabolomic profile.

World title for cyclist Kaarle McCulloch in the Team Sprint

Stephanie Morton and Kaarle McCulloch (NSWIS) won their first world title as a team sprint pairing in a stunning display of speed at the Pruszkow Velodrome on Wednesday to open the Australian Cycling Team’s campaign at the 2019 UCI Track World Championships. The pairing topped the afternoon qualifying session (32.492), before setting a new national mark of 32.368secs in their first-round defeat of China.

9 options for a pre-training carbohydrate boost

When you are training hard the preferred energy source for short burst, high intensity activity and fast energy is carbohydrates. If you are low in energy going into training either at an early session first thing in the morning, at the end of an active day or if you are facing a back to back training session then you might need a bit of boost in carbohydrates to make the right energy accessible and easy to access so your body can perform and you can push yourself to make the session worthwhile.

Impaired heat adaptation from combined heat training and live high-train low hypoxia

This study investigated whether combining training in heat with Live High Train Low hypoxia further improved thermoregulatory and cardiovascular response to a heat tolerance test, when compared to independent heat training. At a Glance: There was greater physiological stress from combined heat training and live high train low.
