Part 1 of a 3 part series in which Bev looks at elite performance and training intensities. Has one particular approach to training been more successful than another? In Part 1 we discuss the spread of training intensity across your week and why it matters.
Mikki talks about carbohydrate mouth rinses – can they really increase performance.
Our Hot Property interview this week is with kiwi cyclist James Oram. James is a pro rider for the Bontrager Cycling Team and has recently been selected to New Zealand's Commonwealth Games Squad.
