Polarized Training After the explosion around the high-intensity interval training methodology (HIIT), now the focus is on the polarized training methodology.I will clarify the whole concept behind this methodology and how we can implement its characteristics for endurance training. And how your load distribution happens. I will show how this methodology fits into block training, as well as the behavior of its intensities inside the training session. Despite the fact… Read More »Polarized Training
Every subject that is relevant to sports science will be discussed in the category of training aspects. By following these readings, the athlete will be able to better absorb our training plans as well as our beliefs about the science of sport and all that surrounds it.
Muscle Fibers VS Athlete Performance Before the subject of muscle fibers, first let’s take into account that the increase in training volume is unlikely to be possible, and that performance improvement can only be achieved by better training effectiveness, which comes to the more obvious conclusion that something different has to be done. Until this moment, the endurance training methodology is based on maximum oxygen consumption and on the metabolic… Read More »Muscle Fibers vs Athlete Performance
Running Zones Taking an analogy with running training zones, the purpose of this post is to identify how many speed variations we need to have in our train. And above all, when should we make use of these variations within the context of these running zones. Joel de Bem, coach and founder of Commandos Legion Making an Analogy Imagine you driving your old car. The one with the manual gears.… Read More »How many gears do you have to run?
