Show Notes:In this episode, I discuss what is commonly referred to as the "zone 3 trap" in which endurance athletes perform the majority of their training volume at a moderately challenging but somewhat sustainable intensity level. This type of approach to training is very common, but doesn't yield long-term improvements and may increase the likelihood of injury, illness, and burnout. Polarized training, on the other hand, is spending the majority of one's training volume at a very low intensity and a very small percentage of one's time at a very high intensity. This general approach to training has a lot of research to back it up, particularly the research done by Dr. Stephen Seiler, and is likely the most effective approach to training for endurance athletes looking to maximize long-term improvements in fitness while reducing the likelihood of injury, illness, and burnout due to chronic accumulation of training stress.

Show Notes:In this episode, I discuss fasted training, including what it is and what some of the recent science suggests are the benefits of fasted training for endurance athletes. Fasted training sessions place a greater stimulus on the aerobic energy system of an athlete, potentially enhancing the long-term effects of easy and aerobic training sessions on "aerobic engine" development. This may carry with it a host of benefits for the endurance athlete.Website: www.peakendurancesolutions.comEmail: peakendurancesolutions@outlook.comInstagram: @ryaneckert_triPublished Book on Amazon: Swim, Bike, Run, Happiness: My Journey to Overcoming DepressionBook mentioned in the podcast: Roar by Dr. Stacy SimsLove our content and want to support our show?
