Long, quiet units (volume training) are the basis for increasing endurance performance. But: Also shorter, intense workouts can improve the maximum oxygen uptake (V02max).
If, on the other hand, the Vlamax is too high, special forms of training such as strength-endurance training increase performance along the “threshold”.
Many studies show that proper nutrition can greatly contribute to achieving better training progress. That’s why top athletes also rely on special sports nutrition – and more and more of them on “MoN”!
