Episode 83

Off season training physiology/Vanessa Faye Foerster

In this episode:

When transitioning from high volume and intensity endurance training to lower volume and supplementing with strength training, what are the changes that take place in the body? Why do so many coaches promote this kind of philosophy and is there a sound rationale for its use? This was the basis of a question submitted by a listener and I take a look at both the science and the coaching perspective in order to give an answer. Plus, a conversation with Mental Endurance Coach and podcaster Vanessa Faye Foerster. Vanessa was a solid triathlete but realized that in order to get to the next level she first had to get out of her own way. She describes how she did that and how she helps others do the same in order to reach their potential.
