So I’m looking after a UFC fighter at the moment and we’re doing endurance training. I use the concept of MAS, Maximal Aerobic Speed for endurance training.
Many people complicate the whole endurance & max aerobic speed.
What is the speed that you can run at❓ You can row at❓ That maintains your Aerobic System.
If you find that speed, you know that if you’re going over that speed, you are now tapping into more and then greater emphasis on anaerobic pathways.
And if you go under that speed you’re training aerobically, and you go at that speed, you’re training aerobically until time frames kick in,
So in MAS training what we do is five-minute treadmill runs or rows with a two-minute recovery and take the average speed m/s. Or km/h that you are able to run at for five minutes by, ➗ by 3, that is your MAS.
So if you want to see big improvements in aerobic development train in and around MAS, above that so you’re to batter type intervals and 30, 30’s and 30, 15 s going to be a hundred twenty hundred and forty percent MAS and train below that for the basic level aerobic development and adaptations that will facilitate growth and can close that loop in that way.
Keeps it simple 5-minute treadmill run and then you know where you’re at with it❗
