Show Notes

The 26th installment of Muscles and Management takes a look at some of the benefits strength and speed training can provide in terms of improving aerobic capacity and overall conditioning.

Gerry gives a breakdown of maximum and operational output and how increasing your maximum output can create a phenomenon where your operational (sub-maximal) output will not be as taxing on your body and overall energy systems.

A breakdown of energy systems follows, and Gerry provides examples of sport specific situations where improved maximum output (strength, sprinting speed etc.) can have a marked impact on an athlete's conditioning.
