How to train High Intensity & Volume

Postby MichaelReid » Sun Jan 16, 2011 6:51 am

In the most recent article on Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) I pose the following question:

I invite the coaches here at WPP to suggest how a program at this level could remain intense for a full season. All coaches are welcome to the discussion (I will post a thread on the WPP forum).

Generally speaking in sports training there is an inverse relationship between intensity and volume (i.e. as intensity goes up, volume goes down). But at this elite level (Training to Win), it is suggested that these athletes need both high intensity and volume.

How can they do this?

Certainly, the use of strategically planned recovery periods or breaks are important as written in the article but what else can we do?

Interested to read ALL of your comments.
