How can you expect to perform your best on race day if you don’t practice everything - your nutrition, your equipment set up, and everything else?
Endurance sports take a lot of training time, but there are things we learn that can benefit other areas of our lives.
Of all the lessons I’ve learned, there is one that stands far above the rest as the most important: If you don’t aim big, you may as well not bother.
Every March as the weather begins to change, I seek out some inspiration and see what is new. Here are a few highlights from my adventure at this year’s Triathlon Show:
VO2 may be largely genetic, but it can be influenced by training - by as much 15%. That would take me from a 57 to an incredible 65.5 and potentially drop more than twenty minutes off my marathon.
A focus on reducing calories is common with triathletes who focus on weight as a metric of progress. What a lot of people forget is that your results are based on one simple metric: your time.
You might have heard static stretching before strength training can dampen performance. A new study found the same thing applies to endurance sports.
Join us on this easy-to-follow plan as we get you started toward successfully completing your very first sprint-length triathlon.
It's a common misconception that a higher cadence requires more energy, but in reality the opposite is true - a higher cadence is more efficient due to the muscle-shortening reflex.
There are a lot of fancy ways to measure progress in endurance sports, but a new study suggests all you really need is a heart rate monitor and GPS - or a watch and map if you're really old school.
Running economy is a critical factor in race performance. A recent study investigated how stride angle affects running economy in experienced athletes.
For endurance athletes, fatigue is perhaps the single most important performance factor to understand. A new study explores the role of metabolic factors and temperature in fatigue onset.
