Maximizing an Event Specific Training Plan

Goal events (Marathon, Half-Marathons and Ultras of all terrains) give us focus and motivation. We create specific run training programs for the event and put in the miles in a specific and thoughtful manner. Rarely does the same focus and preparation carry over into how we prepare our bodies for, and recover from, the training miles. However, the non-running (Supplemental Strength and Skills) part of a training plan can be critical for maximizing the benefit of the training.

Walking with Weight Overhead

Musings on the Cycling Core (our new online program!)

Our goal with this program is to give bicycle riders a super clear, cycling-specific understanding about the purpose of training your core in a focused, time-efficient way. We talk about concrete goals (i.e., minimizing hips rocking on the saddle, the ability to control your upper body and hips when climbing or sprinting, so you can put #alldemwatts to their intended use…) and we SHOW you how to achieve them.
