Webinar: The Role of Volume and Intensity in Endurance Sports
Topic: The Role of Volume and Intensity in Endurance Sports
Endurance training revolves around three (3) key components that must be blended correctly for optimal performance:
The manipulation of those three variables has been studied and debated for decades by exercise physiologists, athletes and coaches, but what has been proven to work the best for endurance athletes?
In this webinar, we will cover the specifics of longer slow distance (LSD) training, low-intensity training (LIT) and high-intensity interval training (HIT) and how they should be blended together for optimal results, based on real science instead of anecdotal theories.
Specific Topics include:
- Interval training: LSD vs. LIT vs. HIT
- Exercise intensity zones
- Physiological models of adaptations
- Quantification of intensity
- 80/20 rule
- Elite athlete case-studies
