Should You Be Doing More Threshold? We Investigate on The Consummate Athlete Podcast

Talking about the 80-20, periodization, and principles of threshold or polarized training can be both confusing and up for debate. We’ve had a lot of experts on talking about these training options, but what it boils down to is that what will work for you in your training depends on a) your goals, b) the reality of your personal situation (i.e do you have a lot of time for base miles?) and c) how hard you’re willing to go (you’ll hear in this episode an argument that a lot of talented people just aren’t great at going THAT hard.)

So it’s a pretty interesting topic, and longtime coach Steve Neal and Peter discuss in this episode (and Peter and I break it down a bunch in the intro as well). It was a pretty enlightening one for me!
