Ed Lippe and Darcy Norman discuss their experiences of working at A.S. Roma and their perspectives on the application of a high-performance thought process to soccer
A logical approach to physiological targeting with HIIT is well described throughout HIIT Science. We know that development of our biological targets (aerobic, anaerobic, neuromuscular) can be stimulated with the right type of training, alongside alignment with the particularities of our context (e.g. athlete profile, sport demands, environmental constraints). This is the bird’s eye view that the coach will want to take to form their decisions regarding HIIT prescription.
Following the recent post and article (1) on high-speed running (HSR) management, I have since written a second short opinion piece for Sport Performance & Science Reports (2), where I offer further guidelines for coaches and practitioners for programming HSR and MW sequences in relation to technical training content and match schedules (i.e., different weekly microcycles).
We probably get that question the most at HIIT Science. It’s an important issue to be clear on, because understanding HIIT Types opens a window of opportunity for understanding solutions to your programming puzzle.
