In episode 102 of the On Coaching Podcast we take on the never-ending argument over volume versus intensity of training. We go back into the history books to look at the poster children of high volume training and high-intensity training to try to get to the root of the argument. A few key takeaways include:
* Everything bleeds together- Why energy system categories are overused.* Why every distance runner should run 100 meters all-out* “Check the box syndrome”- When we categorize training (i.e. Vo2max, lactate threshold, anaerobic power) we tend to cycle through workouts so that we can check them off as completed.* Are you building or maintaining a component? How much does it take to do either?* Can we develop speed and endurance at the same time?
