Alan Couzens Interview

Good coaching resource for Triathlons, specializing in periodization and training planing.

Notes from Interview

  • Perfect periodization. The case for separating volume and intensity in a model for training.
  • Volume is sometimes underrated. Intensity is appealing but isn’t always the solution to better results.
  • Modulating volume and intensity in training for better long term results.
  • Connective tissue takes longer to adapt than muscle tissue. Why this is important for long term results.
  • Predicting injury with machine learning. Variables to consider.
  • Predicting athlete injury:
  • Training and non-training factors. Using HRV to understand the bigger picture of performance.
  • The stress of competition changes how your body handles heat, hydration, energy regulation and more.
