The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racingby Philip Maffetone
Synopses & Reviews
Are you a triathlete, runner, cyclist, swimmer, cross-country skier, or other athlete seeking greater endurance? The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing teaches athletes how to stay healthy, achieve optimal athletic potential, and be injury-free for many productive years. 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:
"Welcome to what will undoubtedly be a whole new level of athletic performance."--Mark Allen, six-time winner of the Hawaii Ironman.
“Welcome to what will undoubtedly be a whole new level of athletic performance.”—Mark Allen, six-time winner of the Hawaii Ironman.
