When training for endurance sports, athletes need to dispense with the myth that putting in the miles will yield results. In the first of a series of talks, Vitfor Performance Director, Craig Stevenson, explains how we find the right balance between intensity, frequency and volume to build your training program and how you can take steps for yourself to improve your training approach.
Training works by triggering the body into a response or adaptation. Here, we look at the basics of training adaptation and the importance of training zones in your program.
Training zones are commonly used as a way of measuring the intensity you should be training at. But, just how do you guage each zone for yourself? We explain each of the seven zones and how they are used in your cycling or running training.
