Dr. Jones and Vikas speak about running fast, his involvement in the breaking-2 project, and more in this episode.
Prof Jones is internationally recognized for his research in the following areas:
1) control of, and limitations to, skeletal muscle oxidative metabolism
2) causes of exercise intolerance in health and disease
3) respiratory physiology, particularly the kinetics of pulmonary gas exchange and ventilation during and following exercise
4) sports performance physiology and nutrition, particularly in relation to endurance athletics.
Prof Jones has authored more than 350 original research and review articles (>35K citations) and is co-Editor of three books.

Prof Jones has acted as a consultant to a number of governing bodies of sports or commercial companies including UK Athletics, the English Institute of Sport, Gatorade Sports Science Institute, and Nike Inc.
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:)
