A great podcast critically reviewing the latest cycling science

Episode 15 – Incorporation of 30s sprints into your endurance ride, Dr Nicki Winfield Almquist interview.

In this episode I interview Dr Nicki Winfield Almquist who is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. We discuss one of his publications ‘The Effect of 30-Second Sprints During Prolonged Exercise on Gross Efficiency, Electromyography, and Pedaling Technique in Elite Cyclists’ published in the International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance. https://journals.humankinetics.com/view/journals/ijspp/15/4/article-p562.xml. This paper is one of the studies in his PhD and thus our discussion does expand to include some of his other work.

Almquist, Nicki, Oyvind Sandbakk, Bent Rønnestad, and Dionne Noordhof. “The Aerobic and Anaerobic Contribution During Repeated 30-s Sprints in Elite Cyclists.” Frontiers in Physiology 12 (May 1, 2021): 692622. https://doi.org/10.3389/fphys.2021.692622.
