Sprint interval training consists of 4-7 all out efforts of typically 30 seconds, followed by 4 minutes recovery. Jerome Koral has researched this kind of training, and the results of his studies indicate that it may be one of the most under utilised types of training around, that more triathletes should tap into.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • Specific sprint interval training (SIT) protocols
  • How effective is SIT at improving Time Trial performance, Time-To-Exhaustion, Maximum Aerobic Speed, and so on?
  • How do these results compare to other types of training, like traditional volume-based training or VO2max-type intervals?
  • Injury risk and other risk factors and considerations with SIT
  • The best times of the season to implement SIT

Q&A #3 - The validity of 80-20, how easy is easy, and different types of interval workouts.
 
  • How easy should your easy training be?
  • Should 80% of your training really be very easy? It's not as clear cut as it's sometimes made out to be
  • In a given time period, should you focus on improving one particular type of interval workouts, or should you mix and match different types of workouts.
