This talk was so great that we gave it it’s own page!
Here, Bill handles some common misconceptions of aerobic training and discusses some energy systems development.
- The book Cory is reading: Exercise Metabolism by Mark Hargreaves and Lawrence Spriet
- The study referenced: Parolin et al, 1999. “Regulation of skeletal muscle glycogen phosphorylase and PDH during maximal intermittent exercise”
- Here’s a little bit on SA node adaptations: D’Souza et al, 2014. “Exercise training reduces resting heart rate via downregulation of the funny channel HCN4”
Questions to help you think
How can we incorporate the energy systems into programming?
How would you ensure your 400m sprinter is training his anaerobic glycolytic energy system?
- Make sure he’s trying hard enough
- Make sure he’s resting long enough (maybe even fifteen minutes)
- Measure his output and make sure he isn’t fatigued
