On our next show we tackle the debate between volume and intensity, address the myth's of training at lactate threshold on the Sixth Sense Analysis (6SA), and welcome our first guest, Dr. Tom Swensen, Associate Professor in Exercise & Sport Sciences at Ithaca College and author on numerous performance related studies. Swensen will discuss his latest research and to explore the debate between the need for high volume, 'base' endurance training (ET) prior to specific or high intensity interval training (HIT) dispelling much of the prevailing dogma regarding endurance training. Drawing on a slew of recent studies by Paul Laursen, Martin Gibala and Kirsten Burgomaster, we show how very short, explosive interval training can not only match up to ET, but also surpass it! Moreover, rather than simply argue to forget longer endurance sessions, we explain how to incorporate HIT into your overall program to maximize performance, or even health and fitness. We will also be featuring the latest music from former Chalk FarM front man, Michael Duff.
