BRAIN TRAINING FOR RUNNERS

Περιγραφή

Περιγραφή

The way experts look at running performance has changed dramatically in the last decade. Your muscles, your lungs, and even your heart have taken a backseat to what is now recognized as the most important organ for running: the brain. Exercise physiologists have come to view the brain as a sort of “governor” that controls every aspect of running, including stride form, fatigue, and adaptations to training.

Now running guru Matt Fitzgerald introduces a first-of-its-kind training strategy that he calls “brain training.” Runners of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels can learn to maximize performance by supplying the brain with the right feedback. Based on Fitzgerald’s eight-point brain training system, this book will help you:

•Resist running fatigue

•Reprogram your stride

•Use cross-training as brain training

•Master the art of pacing

•Maximize recovery

•Learn to run “in the zone”

•Outsmart injuries

•Fuel the brain for maximum performance

•And more

Packed with cutting-edge research, real-world examples, and the wisdom of the world’s top distance runners, Brain Training for Runners offers easily applied advice and delivers practical results for a better overall running experience.
