World-class athletes have proven just how effective low-intensity training can be when combined with a small (but mighty) dose of high-intensity work. In collaboration with Dr. Stephen Seiler, Fast Talk Labs has put together everything you need to know on the topic of polarized training.
Joe Friel addresses the problems that athletes most commonly face en route to their goals: training plateaus, inconsistent training or lack of motivation, inadequate sleep, and prioritizing performance at the expense of health.
There’s a fine line separating performance and athletic potential. This case study illustrates the real consequences of overtraining and how training load can be better managed to avoid the high-stakes gamble altogether.
All athletes reach a point where progress depends more on the skills they can build between their ears, more than the strength of their legs or lungs. The very best athletes are as strong mentally as they are physically. Grant Holicky, Dr. Stephen Cheung, Dr. Simon Marshall, Lesley Paterson, Julie Emmerman, and Julie Young help us explore these critical and often overlooked mental skills.
