Beginner guide to Endurance training.
– Be familiar with the sport you want to compete in.
– Be familiar with the distance you want to compete at.
– Train hard but smart. If you feel like your body needs a rest, take a day off from training. If you don’t have enough time for a long workout, do a short workout with a higher intensity or resistance to challenge your body in a shorter amount of time.
– Be systematic with your training.
– Plan your races wisely and allow yourself enough time to prepare for an event.
– Make sure that you have the right diet plan (the right amount of calories and a balanced ratio of macronutrients and micronutrients in your food) for the sport you compete in.
– As much as you can, try to decrease your body’s inflammation caused by your endurance training. Use anti-inflammatory food and supplements, post-workout recovery supplements, etc.
– Incorporate core exercises, stretches and foam rolling into your workout program.
– Use the best quality equipment you can afford – it might decrease the risk of getting injured or sick.
– Join an endurance athlete’s group on Facebook or other social media.
– Train with a trainer or a group of friends.
– Find a high quality body worker, Rolfing Structural Integration practitioner, osteopath, chiropractor or physio and set up a regular weekly session to keep your body in good alignment and to stay injury free.
