Overview

Are you a triathlete, runner, cyclist, swimmer, cross-country skier? Learn how to stay healthy, achieve optimal athletic potential, and be injury-free.

Dr. Philip Maffetone’s approach to endurance offers a truly “individualized” outlook and unique system that emphasizes building a strong aerobic base for increased fat burning, weight loss, sustained energy, and a healthy immune system. Good nutrition and stress reduction are also key to this commonsense, big-picture approach.

In addition, Dr. Maffetone dispels many of the commonly held myths that linger in participatory sports—and which adversely impact performance—and explains the “truths” about endurance, such as:

  • The need to train slower to race faster will enable your aerobic system to improve endurance
  • Why expensive running shoes can actually cause foot and leg injuries
  • The fact that refined carbohydrates actually reduce endurance energy and disrupt hormone balance
  • And more.

If you are looking to increase your endurance and maximize your athletic potential, The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing is your one-stop guide to training and racing effectively.

Very sound advice on exercise and nutrition but very short on details. Rambling.
