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.
As the 2019 season draws to a close, we catch up with our Vitfor Future Champions athletes to find out how this innovative program has helped them achieve their cycling goals.
Pro triathlete, Nikki Bartlett, recommends physiological testing for anyone who takes improving their performance seriously. Here, she explains how her Vitfor VO2 Max test changed her training 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.
