Olli-Pekka Nuuttila is a doctoral researcher at the University of Jyväskylä. In this interview we discuss his recent study comparing two-week blocks of either increased volume (70% increase over baseline) or increased intensity (5 interval sessions per week), and how the findings can be applied in the real world.  

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-How does a two-week block of volume or intensity impact performance (3000m running time trial), subjective markers of recovery, and hormonal/biomarkers of recovery and stress?

-The impact of adding a recovery week after a two-week focused block on volume or intensity

-Individual variations in response and non-responders or trivial responses

-When and how to incorporate volume blocks or intensity blocks in your training
