Chapter 2:
  • Covers testing and assessment and provides a valuable source of information that athletes, coaches, and fitness professionals can use to determine if a programme is optimally effective
Chapter 3:
  • Provides a summary of endurance training principles with an emphasis on explaining proper programme design through periodisation, or the systematic manipulation of exercise parameters (volume, intensity, and duration)
  • Periodised training is designed to maximise healthy physiological adaptations and minimise the negative effects of too much exercise or too little recovery.
Chapter 4:
  • Includes important information about nutrition and hydration
 Chapters 5:
  • An excellent introduction to training programme design specific to endurance sports, including running, cycling, swimming, and triathlon

Chapter 6:
  • Provides explanations of resistance training exercises
Chapter 7:
  • Explores the science behind resistance training for the endurance athlete.
  • Provide a clear rationale for the inclusion of resistance training into an endurance programme, as well as practical direction about how to integrate the resistance training with the aerobic training
