Endurance and strength are often discussed as mutually exclusive conditions, which have resulted in separate workout plans and philosophies. In this article I want to emphasize how one could combine both successfully into a single session, once, twice or more weekly. Throughout my career I have emphasized the importance of aerobic conditioning when training for endurance, the proper anaerobic workouts for strength, and, most importantly, finding the balance of both. Too much aerobic training often leads to diminished strength, and too many anaerobic workouts can impair endurance.

Want Speed? Slow Down!
Our guest on this podcast is Dr. He's most well known for The Maffetone Method, which is a heart rate based method for increasing your aerobic vs anaerobic performance. A simple equation train at a heart rate of minus your age , it is one of the most effective training tools in any athletes repertoire. An avid proponent of barefoot running and occasionally lifting heavy things, Dr. Maffetone's methods are most clearly distinguished by three things: His extraordinary individualization of coaching, his incredible patience, and his holistic approach that goes well beyond just one type of healing modality.
The Maffetone Method, Base Training, and Why You Are Not “Lungs with Legs”
Traditionally, it is thought that only anaerobic training — speed work — builds speed. However, developing the aerobic system first, before attempting hard work, is ideal: you get faster without the wear and tear — and injury — that often accompanies anaerobic training. Using a heart rate monitor, a basic biofeedback device, makes it even easier. Despite the boom in heart monitor use by athletes, it is still a misunderstood training companion. In , heart rate monitors were virtually unheard of except in athletes I worked with. Heart rate monitors are really just simple biofeedback units. But without interpretation of the data they provide — heart rate changes — their true benefits cannot be realized.
