  1. We all have a weakness
  2. Here's another article for the High Fat camp ABSTRACT Background. Many successful ultra-endurance athletes have switched from a high- carbohydrate to a low-carbohydrate diet, but they have not previously been studied to determine the extent of metabolic adaptations. Methods. Twenty elite ultra-marathoners and ironman distance triathletes performed a maximal graded exercise test and a 180 min submaximal run at 64% VO2max on a treadmill to determine metabolic responses. One group habitually consumed a traditional high- carbohydrate (HC: n = 10, %carbohydrate:protein:fat = 59:14:25) diet, and the other a low- carbohydrate (LC; n = 10, 10:19:70) diet for an average of 20 months (range 9 to 36 months). Results. Peak fat oxidation was 2.3-fold higher in the LC group (1.54 ± 0.18 vs 0.67 ± 0.14 g/min; P = 0.000) and it occurred at a higher percentage of VO2max (70.3 ± 6.3 vs 54.9 ± 7.8%; P = 0.000). Mean fat oxidation during submaximal exercise was 59% higher in the LC group (1.21 ± 0.02 vs 0.76 ± 0.11 g/min; P = 0.000) corresponding to a greater relative contribution of fat (88 ± 2 vs 56 ± 8%; P = 0.000). Despite these marked differences in fuel use between LC and HC athletes, there were no significant differences in resting muscle glycogen and the level of depletion after 180 min of running (−64% from pre-exercise) and 120 min of recovery (−36% from pre-exercise). Conclusion. Compared to highly trained ultra-endurance athletes consuming an HC diet, long-term keto-adaptation results in extraordinarily high rates of fat oxidation, whereas muscle glycogen utilization and repletion patterns during and after a 3 hour run are similar. © 2015 The Authors.

  3. I love how the conspiracy theorists think the pharma companies love up the Drs with gifts and money when nothing is further from the truth. The TGA has the tightest regulations in the world regarding this, whilst in Asia it's pretty different over here you can't even give branded stationary unless there's a use for it
  4. I wonder what the top 75 spots they have left will roll to in each age group, given a number of people on this list have already qualified or gained a spot via the lottery
  5. I raced Port in the Cuore aero one piece, works great and has a modesty flap at the front for those number 1 toilet stops. It essentially a 2 in 1 kit.
  6. Yea will be interesting to see if those spots from Melbourne remain for the following season at all races or evaporate
  7. Hey guys Does anyone know the breakdown of slots at Busso, Taupo, Port and Cairns for 2016/17 season? Will it stay the same as this season or will the mystery Melbourne slots go elsewhere any information greatly appreciated? Cheers

  9. Hey Can any one find a list of the kona qualifiers from last year at ironman melbourne? and then kindly direct me to it
  10. anyone done spreadsheet to work out the slots in each agegroup?
  11. I used the specialized turbos at port, they felt great and seemed to roll well. I did grab a pair of the cottons but they were just too big to fit the rear of my Felt IA (and they were really tough to get on).
  12. Hi guys and girls, I have conned my wife into racing ironman melbourne (after I said port was the last im for a few years) on the provision of a family visit after the race. I am toying with the idea of racing with a disc vs a 90 mm race wheel(clinchers) and wanted to get peoples thought that have raced on the course or train in the area? So shoot
  13. Nice read, top bloke! Best person to ever train with for Tris!! Come back to sydney
  14. Where did you find such a rare beast?
