About This Activity

Professional Development for Coaches and Athletes


Learn how to analyse training and racing data (ie: heart rate and power output) in programs such as Training Peaks, Strava and Best Bike Split.  As a coach, you will learn how to interpret, measure and provide feedback to athletes based upon the analysis provided by these analytical platforms. As an athlete, this workshop will provide skills on how to use your own data to train and race smarter.

Presented by: Stephen Lane

Inspired by how the human body adapts to exercise training and intrigued by the mechanisms behind it, Stephen holds a PhD in Biomedical Science (RMIT University). Stephen completed his PhD under the supervision of Professor John Hawley, one of the most well renowned researchers in the area of exercise nutrition and metabolism.

Stephen’s PhD research focus was the manipulation of carbohydrate availability and the effect on training adaptation and performance. As part of his research Stephen spent time at the Australian Institute of Sport, investigating nutritional interventions on cycling time trial performance. This research was used in the development of strategies used by the National team at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

A keen endurance cyclist, Stephen holds a number of Masters State time trial and road titles. He has a particular interest in educating athletes about ways to optimise performance. In a systematic approach to training adaptations, he incorporates a range of strategies including physiologically based training programs, nutritional and ergogenic interventions to support training adaptation and performance.
