ONE STEP AHEAD: Important supplements for the low carb athlete. Plus a supplement prescription for long and/or hard endurance sessions. WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: The standing desk. Research has proven that a seated position is not conducive to physical or mental good health - it can also affect our training. Long periods of sitting act as an independent risk factor which not even 20 hours of weekly exercise will offset. HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEW - JAMES DUNNE: James Dunne of Kinetic Revolution is a Movement and Running Mechanics Specialist. Describing himself as a running coach, movement geek and sports rehab therapist he has a particular passion for identifying and correcting dysfunctional movement patterns that cause overuse injuries or impair efficiency in endurance athletes. James holds a Degree in Sport Rehabilitation and has a special interest in the Functional Biomechanics of Running.

THE GEEK-OUT: Mid foot cleat positions for cycling shoes - research shows that this change in cleat position can improve running times off the bike. 5 MINUTE FOCUS: We talk to Robert Durham of 'Revbox'. A New Zealand designed bicycle ergometer which provides athletes with a high performance training tool that has an unlimited resistance range in a compact transportable layout. It allows extremely high power output training, from very low to very high cadences, suitable for even the most powerful elite athletes.
