Every Major Groundbreaking Sports Performance Research Finding of The Past Decade has been Reported in Peak Performance.

Our New Special Report: The Best of The Noughties Puts All of Those Findings Together in One Place

21st Century breakthroughs for maximum performance!

Dear Athlete,

The first ten years of the new millennium have witnessed an explosion in our understanding of human performance, resulting in some major advances for athletes whose goals are to train and compete faster, harder and longer…. and to recover more rapidly.

These breakthroughs in understanding have completely rewritten the rulebook on training.

More importantly, all of them can be practically applied straight away to significantly boost your performance.

The icing on the cake is that because they’ve been gleaned from the frontiers of sports science, these research findings will also give you a cutting edge over your competitors; indeed, so new are they that many elite coaches are still unaware of them and how they will change the way we train in the future.

If winning is important to you, this special report, exclusive to athletes and coaches signed up to Peak Performance, will be invaluable.

As history has shown us time and time again, the appliance of science is very often the difference between athletes who go on to reach the very top and those who fall by the wayside.

So why not put science on your side and put your competitors in the shade?

Oxygen kinetics – start smart for a mean finish!

The way your body transports and uses oxygen during the initial stages of vigorous exercise might not sound very exciting, but new research suggests that understanding this process and adjusting your pre-race preparation accordingly can result in truly remarkable performance gains. Professor Andy Jones explains:

> The concepts of VO2 kinetics and the O2 deficit

> The importance of VO2 kinetics to exercise performance

> New research on interventions that influence VO2 kinetics is presented;

> Practical recommendations for enhancing VO2 kinetics and exercise performance are provided.

Compression clothing – can it help you squeeze out a PB?

21st Century technology marches on and the use of compression clothing such as elastic shorts, tights and vests has mushroomed over the last decade. But what’s the science behind compression clothing and how can athletes harness the full pontential of these garments?

In this chapter of our new report, Andy Harrison and Kevin Thompson investigate.

> An explanation of compression clothing is given and how it may enhance proprioception

> Research on the benefits of compression clothing for aerobic and anaerobic performance is presented;

> Revealed: The role of compression clothing in enhancing recovery

Maximising strength – time to tear up the old rulebook?

For thousands of years, athletes have used resistance training to increase their strength and performance. But as Keith Baar and Mike Gittleson explain, 21st Century science is revealing that the traditional methods of resistance training might not be the most effective way to do this..

In a fantastic chapter in The Best of The Noughties, you will find out about:

> The physiological responses to strength training and the role of a key regulator of muscle growth called mTOR

> Research showing how to optimise mTOR activation and so increase muscle growth

> Practical training recommendations are given for maximum strength gains.

Explosive strength training – can it blow away conventional methods?

In years gone by, the conventional resistance training wisdom has been that performing two or three sets to failure is the best way to achieve rapid strength gains. However, as John Sampson explains in this new report, groundbreaking new research suggests that less may be more...

> The conventional approach to strength training using ‘task failure’ protocols

> The use of explosive contractions for achieving maximum muscle activation

> New research on explosive strength training is presented, including potential advantages over conventional approaches.

Carbohydrate drinks: a new breed for a new century

Despite the numerous claims to the contrary by the sports nutrition industry, real advances in sports nutrition are comparatively rare.

But recent research into carbohydrate absorption and utilisation is heralding a new breed of carbohydrate drink, which promises genuinely enhanced endurance performance. Andrew Hamilton will explain in your new special report:

> The importance of consuming carbohydrate during endurance events

> The background to modern carbohydrate drink formulation

> Recent research on the potential benefits of mixed carbohydrate drinks containing fructose

> Recommendations for endurance athletes are made.

Sports drinks: should you be adding protein to the mix?

Following on from the chapter briefly summarized above, one of the most noticeable trends in sports nutrition over the last decade is the addition of protein to carbohydrate-energy drinks.

The manufacturers claim this gives enhanced performance and recovery for athletes but do these claims stand up to scientific scrutiny?

In The Best of the Noughties Mike Saunders investigates:

> The theoretical advantages of adding protein to carbohydrate/energy drinks

> The latest research for and against the addition of protein to carbohydrate drinks

> He then makes recommendations for athletes on the balance of the current evidence.

‘Tuning up’ performance – music and video as ergogenic aids

Elite professional sport is now so competitive that few elite athletes can afford to ignore the psychological skills and techniques required to enhance mental toughness. The first decade of the 21st Century has seen the development of a number of creative approaches to developing psychological skills, such as listening to carefully selected music and watching personal motivational videos. Andy Lane evaluates these new techniques, explains how they can be assessed and suggests ways in which they can be incorporated into training

> Music can be used to enhance emotions and emotions have a powerful ergogenic effect on performance

> An athlete’s response to music is highly individualized but can be assessed using the music mood regulation scale;

> The use of music as an ergogenic aid and preparation technique is explained in the context of a case study from boxing;

> Get your copy of The Best of The Noughties and access practical advice on how to put together a video sequence to enhance performance.

Bicarbonate: why it’s making a 21st Century return!

It’s been used in baking for years and briefly found favour with athletes, but as Keith Baar and Andy Philp explain in this new special report, brand new research suggests that taking sodium bicarbonate before you train really could lead to better endurance performance...

During intense training, our muscles produce a substance called lactate and hydrogen ions (acid) faster than we can use or get rid of them. The result is a build up of these by-products in the exercising muscle. People have long believed that this increase in acid and lactate is a direct cause of fatigue. However, scientists still argue over this point despite over a century of investigation.

The Best of The Noughties reveals:

> The background and history of bicarbonate supplementation

> New research on bicarbonate supplementation as a training aid

> The findings and recommendations from that research.
