Olympics, Training for Altitude, Training for Motorsports, Power:Weight, Trimps Vs. TSS
In this episode of The Consummate Athlete Podcast, we talked to CTS Premier Coach and Head Physiologist Dean Golich about his experiences at the RIO Olympics and some of the interesting things he observed while there. He tells us about Rebecca Rusch’s preparation for her latest high altitude adventure and how you can train for better results at altitude. Dean shares his views on Power to Weight Ratio matters and his refreshing view on body composition. Dean also helps us make sense of quantifying training load (Trimps Vs. TSS) and gives us an idea of what the training plans for his motor-sport athletes involves.
