Sunday Smart-Trainer Session: Martin Gibala Intervals XI

Doing repeated short bouts of exercise at very high intensity develops some physiological systems in the body. Predominantly it provides a great training stimulus for the neuromuscular system. Although not specific to endurance events, training the neuromuscular system can bring on your fitness very quickly and is still a massive benefit for endurance athletes especially early in the season or if you are unfit. This workout can be done by beginners or experienced cyclists alike because a max sprint is all about your level of effort and is likely to be different from another rider.

Saturday Swim Session: Success with Stamina

Stamina and Endurance are essential for a number of reasons. If you are a triathlete or open-water swimmer these traits are useful for the duration of your event. But more so if you are a Master’s Swimmer targeting a shorter pool-based event they provide the base fitness on which to build your speed as part of a periodised swimming plan. This session is great for master’s swimmers.

Friday Fartlek Run: Lance Watson’s Xterra Hill Set C

Running in hills develops leg strength as well as the strength of the tendons and ligaments around the knee and ankle. Developing leg strength is important, as it makes for a more powerful contraction of the leg muscles to propel you forward faster. Including hills regularly, particularly early in your build-up will see great dividends in the improvement of your running. This workout is great to include early in your build-up to develop leg strength.

Sprint Training is the cherry on the top that gives you your race speed. With a periodised training plan, the preceding sessions are all building to this point to maximise and optimise the speed developed in these sessions. This session is perfect for master’s swimmers, although not specifically targeted for triathletes and open water swimmers this session will help sharpen the top-end swim speed.
