Physiology of Endurance Training Part 1: Energy Systems
Understanding how our bodies work will be quite helpful in our pursuit to optimise Endurance performance. A person training for competing in endurance-based events requires a significant amount of energy. In this part, we will learn about energy and the various pathways through which our body derives it from. What is Energy? To begin, Energy […]
Physiology of Endurance Training Part 3: Effects on the Cardiopulmonary system.
Until now, we have seen that an improvement in the oxygen carrying ability is an important factor contributing to peak performance in endurance sport, since it is heavily dependent on the oxidative energy system (Oxygen dependent). Athletes can see significant improvements in the cardiopulmonary system and oxygen carrying capabilities of the body through regular training, […]
