Dr. Guillaume Millet: Ultra Trail Running - How To train to reduce fatigue

September 14, 2020

In the previous episode of Runchatlive, we had the honor of talking with Dr. Benno Nigg - founder, creator & director of the Human Performance Laboratory, University of Calgary, a multi-disciplinary research center with approximately 200 researchers & assistants working in every aspect of the understanding of movement and exercise.

In Episode 50, we are delighted to bring you Dr. Guillaume Millet, who from 2013 to 2018 worked at the Human Performance Laboratory directing the Neuromuscular Fatigue research team. Now back in France, Dr. Millet is Professor of Exercise Physiology in the Department of Kinesiology at Jean Monnet University, Saint-Étienne and the director of the LIBM laboratory (Inter-University Laboratory of Human Movement Biology).

His general research area investigates the physiological, neurophysiological and biomechanical factors associated with fatigue, including that associated with extreme (ultra-endurance, hypoxia) exercise, and in this episode of Runchatlive talks about training & fatigue in Ultra Trail Running.

We should add, Dr. Millet is himself no stranger to extreme exercise, with over 30 years experience competing in endurance sports including ultra-trail running, XC skiing and adventure races. The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® (UTMB) is widely regarded as one of the most difficult foot races in the world with a distance of approximately 106 miles and a total elevation gain of around 32,940 ft. - Dr. Millet has placed 3 times in the top 6.
