While this is necessary to some extent, too much drive and motivation can lead to disastrous training and poor performance. This is evident in the following question that I received today. The athlete, a cyclist, understands a lot... Continue reading

You may recall that I broke my pelvis in a bike crash back in early April (be careful around car doors that may open!). Since then I've received several emails from other athletes who have also had serious injuries and wondered how I was doing. I appreciate their well wishes.... Continue reading

The accompanying Performance Management Chart (PMC) from WKO+ software is for a road cyclist I coach (click to enlarge). It shows his entire season from last September’s transition period (when he worked much too hard) until today. It basically tells the story of his season from highs to lows. In... Continue reading

In part 1 I wrote about a topic I’ve addressed here many times before: The limited value of training volume for the advanced athlete and the necessity of emphasizing event-specific intensity, especially in the last 12 weeks prior to a targeted race. This does not mean that volume is unimportant.... Continue reading

This post is a clarification of my earlier post on the same topic. I’ll get back to describing advanced-athlete training once I’ve cleared up an obvious matter I overlooked earlier. via www.joefrielsblog.com Continue reading

There are 7 basic training assumptions that keep me on the right path with the athletes I coach. These certainly aren’t earth-shaking thoughts but they lead in a direction that perhaps you hadn’t thought of before. via www.joefrielsblog.com Continue reading
