Scott Christensen is back with a brand new CTF coaching resource we’ve titled: Peaking Workouts & Strategies for Distance Runners.
If this kind of information is something you’re interested in, strongly consider Scott’s new 70 minute program.
As educated coaches, we know the height of the peak starts on the first day of practice. There are no magical workouts you can give 2 weeks from the State Meet that can make up for sloppy progressions for months leading up to it.
But, if you’re anything like me, you still want to know as much as you can about the peaking period, even if just to avoid screwing things up for your kids.
Prescribing too much or too little of various training elements can lead to the wheels falling off at crunch time.
And Scott lays out exactly how to give the perfect mix of aerobic work and anaerobic work to ensure peak performance.
It’s textbook Scott Christensen:
He simplifies proven scientific theory & case study evidence to give you the most effective peaking workouts for your high school distance runners and middle distance runners.
Take a look at this clip explaining how to use late season repetition running (As Scott says, “Intervals get you there, repetition running keeps you there.”) workouts to fine tune your endurance athletes for optimal performance in the biggest competitions of the season:
Here are some other valuable insights you’ll get when you watch this program:
-Exactly how often you should strongly challenge both the aerobic and anaerobic systems in order to keep all trained qualities at their peak.
-The maximum percentage of performance improvement you should expect…and what went wrong if your runners go over (or under) that magic number.
-How to periodize and sequence workouts so they fit with the championship race schedule.
-Coach Christensen’s 6 favorite Anaerobic Capacity workouts, as well as when, where, why, and how to implement them into training.
-9 proven protocols for maximizing post workout recovery and regeneration, such as how long the cool down run should be and exactly how much water athletes should consume immediately following the workout.
As with all our digital programs, you’ll also get lifetime Q&A access with Coach Christensen which, I’d argue, is pretty valuable especially now that we’re competing in meets where performance really matters.
