# 12 – Dr.Stephen Seiler discusses his pioneering 8-level training hierarchy pyramid from most to least important, as well as polarized training
Show Notes Chapter Markers

World famous Exercise Physiologist, Dr. Stephen Seiler, on his pioneering work on the 8-level training hierarchy pyramid from most important to least important: Training volume; high intensity training; intensity distribution; planning/periodization; micro-periodisation; specific adaptations like heat and altitude; race pace training and tapering. We also discuss polarized training and mind-body connection. 

Show Notes
01:05 – Introduction to Dr.Seiler and how he got involved in exercise science
04:20 – Dr.Seiler explains how he came up with the 8-level training hierarchy pyramid
8:00 – Three most important levels of training hierarchy: training volume, intensity and distribution between the two
13:45 – The next 5 levels of training hierarchy - planning/periodization; micro-periodisation; specific adaptations like heat and altitude; race pace training and tapering
22:50 – Dr.Seiler explains why he did not include strength and mental training in the hierarchy
25:15 – Basis of polarized training and evidence
30:00 – Ways to measure intensity in polarized training: power/pace; heart rate and perceived exertion
33:10 – Interval training within polarized training – better to do more time at sub-maximal effort than less time at maximal effort
35:05 – Mind-body connection
39:00 – Ways to train the mind to improve performance
41:45 – Quiz Time!
44:25 – Resource recommendations by Dr.Seiler
