Sweet spot training is one of the biggest “bang for your buck” workouts available to an athlete, especially early in the season. WEven when you’re late into a season, sweet spot training can give your regular interval work a significant boost. Even once your season has been shut down and you’re cruising through the off-season, some weekly sweet spot training can help to keep your fitness from degrading too much as you wind down and rest.
Unlike high-intensity interval work, sweet spot training takes longer and leads to slightly different adaptations. It takes up a little more time than typical high-intensity interval training, but it is easy to recover from and the value per minute of training is huge.
In this podcast, I’ll go through the definition of sweet spot training, some of the benefits and some ways to get more sweet spot training into your workouts. As a bonus, you can pick up a free copy of my power testing and fatigue resistance tool (which I’ll explain how to use during the podcast) at the end of the show notes!
