Brainless testing and training versus brain involved physiological guided workouts and assessments. Sometimes it is so great to get some back up for crazy ideas form really great accepted places. Here a great example and a small inside in may daily great mail stimulation.
This is from Ruud.
Here my short feedback over mail
Happy New year
and thanks for your fun feedback's. Yes this is a great article and it is nice to see that my idea on brainless versus brain involved has some support now. I will show in the forum a presentation I made over 25 years back in Spain on this subjects. There are more of this supports done by Noakes a few years back and his group he presented in a seminar I was, showing the same results on Kenian ( we had this on the forum as well ) runners and other sports.
It makes completely sense, as every person has his of her individual time lag to try to integrate the team into the bets survival activity and that's where he or she will reach an optimal delivery and utilization ability. Paced step test . but for sure paced 3 min step test are far to short once we reach a certain intensity to allow a proper integration of all team members.
On the one side we use that for certain physiological stimulation ideas so we can keep one system out or can integrate one system more once we know limiter and compensator timing and the lag time of the different systems.
Have a great day and thanks as usual for your always stimulation mails. Juerg
And below for people more intersted to question our own ideas on VO2 and the use of it.
