Effort Based Training is arguably the most effective way for an
endurance athlete to train. But, what exactly is Effort Based Training?
We will discuss effort based training from perceived effort to physiological
testing to establish training zones based on anaerobic threshold.
Why is HR a good indicator of effort? How do you establish training
zones? What types of workouts should be included in each training
zone? These questions will be answered and discussed in detail.
We will also cover modifying training phases for different levels
of athlete - from novice through advance competitor.
