Energy Systems: N=1

Shameless self promotion


Why general blog programming isn't your best bet, and the misconceptions regarding "metabolic conditioning" as it relates to energy system training.

Hi Evan,

great articles, also the one about the "batteries"!

Just read the example programming for your clients which seems very sophisticated!

Can you give some examples of how you can test which energy pathway is the weakest so you know which one to focus on. I think I got the example with the runners on the airdyne but are there any standard test you can do to find out where you lack the most?

We use different tests depending on where the client is at. ill give you an example though.

For Time:
30 Thrusters (95#)
500m Row
-the intent here is to test lactic endurance. all test have standardized norms based on findings of other OPT CCP coaches after analyzing large amount of people and compiling data.

An example of aerobic power may be:
10 Minute Airdyne for Max cals
or
15 Minute AMRAP:
15 KBS (32kg)
15 Burpee

theres literally dozens of tests for each pathway we can use.
