Ep 80: Fatigue, Recovery, and Running Performance with Dr. Guillaume Millet
In this episode of Run with Fitpage, we had one of the top researchers globally, Dr. Guillaume Millet, discuss a topic that is one of the most discussed and sought-after topics among us runners – FATIGUE.
Dr. Guillaume Millet, Ph.D., is a professor at Jean Monnet University in Saint-Etienne. From 1998 to 2013, he held various academic positions in France, including a 4-year full-time research contract at the French National Institute for Medical Research (INSERM). He also was Vice-Chair of Research of the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology from 2014 to 2016. His general research area investigates the physiological, neurophysiological, and biomechanical factors associated with fatigue, both during extreme exercise and in patients (neuromuscular diseases, cancer, ICU). His research is focusing on understanding fatigue in order to create tailored rehabilitation programs for clinical populations and enhance patients’ quality of life. In July 2022, he had published over 275 journal articles.
Guillaume has practiced various endurance sports in competition for 30 years. Among other results, he placed 3 times in the top 6 at the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®. He has published 5 books on physiology or training in endurance sports (one in English: “How to succeed at UTMB”). His book “Ultra-trail, Plaisir, performance et santé” has sold more than 12,000 copies.
Vikas hosts this weekly podcast and enjoys nerding over-exercise physiology, nutrition, and endurance sport in general. He aims to get people to get out and ‘move’. When he is not working, he is found running, almost always. He can be found on nearly all social media channels but Instagram is preferred:)
