Description

Are you a triathlete, runner, cyclist, swimmer, cross-country skier? Learn how to stay healthy, achieve optimal athletic potential, and be injury-free.

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:


The need to train slower to race faster will enable your aerobic system to improve endurance
Why expensive running shoes can actually cause foot and leg injuries
The fact that refined carbohydrates actually reduce endurance energy and disrupt hormone balance
And more.


If you are looking to increase your endurance and maximize your athletic potential, The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing is your one-stop guide to training and racing effectively.
