#14 Training efficiently, calculating workload and debunking myths - Trang Nguyen as a guest on the WarriorU Podcast

September 29, 2019

Two months ago, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Bram Connolly on the WarriorU podcast, a podcast that explores human optimisation, resilience and leadership.

This episode contains the full-interview where I discuss many topics about training for endurance athletes. I cover principles of training that are often not fully-understood by individuals, causing them to be training and performing sub-optimally.

Topics include the principle of Specificity, Fitness and Technique: Training efficiently, Strength and Conditioning training, Training the Aerobic vs Anaerobic system, Calculating workload and sleep & debunking common myths.
