The polarized training model has revolutionized the way many athletes train, from the elite ranks to the amateur levels. Dr. Stephen Seiler, a pioneer and leading researcher of polarized training in endurance sports, and other renowned experts explain how to master this effective training methodology.
Dr. Stephen Seiler breaks down the application of the polarized training model, addressing what is meant by the two thresholds — LT1 and LT2 — how to determine yours. We also discuss why it’s important not to over-estimate LT1 or LT2, and how to use them to determine your zones in a three-zone model.
NERD LAB! Our resident physiologists Rob Pickels and Trevor Connor nerd out and dive deep into new scientific research and debates. In this episode: Is cycling explosive and eccentric? Academics take on Dr. Seiler.
If your dad were a world-class exercise physiologist like, say, Dr. Stephen Seiler, how would you train? Probably pretty effectively. In this case study of one, Dr. Seiler chats with his daughter and runner, Siren, to review her career and training methods.
