Dr. Inigo Mujika | Swim.Bike.Run. - Endurance Training - Science and Practice

|   Fortbildung


Per Definition: „Endurance training is the act of exercising to increase endurance “

Sounds too easy?
To be fair, when talking about running or cycling the movement isn’t very complex and the most important part of the training is the volume!
But, as simple as this may sound, when coaching performance athletes, the training process is getting tough!

Can you answer all these questions without doubt?

  • What can you do, if your athlete is already training +30h per week?
  • What are the most effective training methods for endurance disciplines like Running, Swimming, Cycling and Triathlon?
  • Do you know how to integrate strength training into your training plan in a most effective manner?
  • Do you know exactly how to taper for optimal performance?

If not, make sure you attend this course!

This full day lecture is covering the following topics:

  • Planning and periodization methods for endurance performance
  • Quantification of training and competition loads 
  • Monitoring and assessment of athletes’ adaptation
  • Strength training for endurance performance
  • Tapering and peaking for optimal performance

WHO should attend this lecture?

  • Triathlon Coaches
  • Sport Scientists
  • Swimming, Running, Cycling Coaches
  • Personal Trainers
  • Track & Field Coaches
  • Coaches from any kind of endurance sports

WHY should you attend this course?

  • After this lecture you know how to set up training plans in endurance sports
  • You know how to monitor loads in an optimal way
  • You are able to complement your endurance training with strength exercises
