Durability can be defined as the time of onset and magnitude of deterioration of physiological performance parameters over time during prolonged exercise. Dr. Ed Maunder (Auckland University of Technology) and Dr. Stephen Seiler (University of Agder) join us to discuss their recent publication and the overall scientific knowledge on the topic of durability, as well as best practices for assessing and developing durability.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-What is durability, why is it important, and what are the implications of it in racing and in training?
-What do we know about durability and the mechanisms of it from the scientific literature?
-How to assess and quantify durability in the lab or in the field?
-How to train to develop and improve durability?
-What is high-intensity repeatability and how does it relate to durability?
-Practical recommendations for athletes and coaches
