Bent Rønnestad, PhD, is a professor at the Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences. Bent has been heavily influential in the sports science world in areas such as concurrent training, high intensity interval training, periodisation, and heat training.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-Is time near VO2max a good indicator for the effectiveness of an interval workout?
-Different types of interval sessions: short intervals, traditional long intervals, fast start long intervals, and variable long intervals
-How do the above types of sessions compare for acute responses (e.g. time at VO2max) and for training adaptations and performance improvements?
-Periodisation of interval training
-An overview of heat training and adaptations in both hot and temperate conditions
-Specific protocols used to increase hemoglobin mass, markers of performance and performance, and maintenance protocols
-For whom is heat training a recommended?
-How does heat training compare to altitude?

FORM Smart Swim Goggles give you unprecedented real-time feedback in your swim training through a display on the goggle lens. See every split to stay on pace, track your stroke rate and don't let it drop, use heart rate to become more scientific and precise with your training (through integration with Polar HR monitors) and analyse more in-depth metrics post-swim in the app. You can also use a vast library of workouts or training plans, or build your own guided workouts. Get 15% off the goggles with the code TTS15.
