Optimizing your training programme and nutrition plan for your race or meet is not a new thing.
But now, a new optimisation technique is being introduced by some of the world’s biggest and most well-known Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
In an article published in the Journal of Sports Medicine, experts from several sports, including swimming, cycling and track and field, say that a training programme is essential to winning medals and qualifying for the next Olympics.
A training programme for sprinters and track athletes Dr. Daley explained that athletes must have a good understanding of their sport to be able to adapt their training programme to meet the needs of the sport.””
Our sport’s current emphasis is on strength, power, speed and power output, while the sport is now being influenced by a more holistic approach.”
A training programme for sprinters and track athletes Dr. Daley explained that athletes must have a good understanding of their sport to be able to adapt their training programme to meet the needs of the sport.
“The key to success in the sport of track and race is to understand your sport and what it is all about.
That means you have to know what to expect from your competition and how to prepare for those matches,” said Dr Daley.
“You need to know how to perform the specific skills and movements that you want to perform, how to train the muscles in a way that maximizes performance, and how your body reacts to the training program.”
It’s the same thing for the sprinters, it’s the very same thing that they have to learn.
The sport of sprinters has been changing since the 1970s, and that’s when it started to focus more on speed and strength, and not strength, so that’s where the modern athletes train now.
“A number of sports are looking to improve their training and nutrition to prepare athletes for the upcoming games.
Swimming is already testing out a modified program that includes high intensity cardio, strength training, nutrition and nutrition supplementation, according to the International Swimming Federation.”
Swimming has an exciting new program that is being tested in a number of Olympic Games and Paralymbics events, and we want to be sure it delivers the maximum benefit to our athletes and their sport,” said Steve Schmitt, director of Olympic swimmer training and recovery.
Track and field is also taking the time to implement a program that combines strength and cardio, which is an essential component of an optimal training programme, according the Australian Track and Field Federation.
A recent study published in The Lancet showed that endurance athletes who completed a moderate-intensity cardio training programme were more than three times more likely to be awarded medals in the Olympics.”
They are actually doing something right, but I think that they are missing the boat and maybe they need to go back to the drawing board and find out what the optimal training program is.””
If endurance athletes are doing this training it’s important to get that message out.”

“Daley and other experts are encouraging athletes to take their training more seriously and not just focus on individual competitions.”
We need to do more of that work to get people to realise that you don’t have to train for individual competitions,” said Daley who is also a member of the International Olympic Committee.”
When you train with athletes, they get better at training for a specific event.
They get better in the long run.
