WTS Yokohama; high intensity interval training on mitochondrial adaptation.
- Need to start swimming in the open water? Join us for open water swim workouts on Mondays at 6pm, and/or Saturdays at 7am. All swims take place at Quinn's Pond. Water temp is about 61-62 degrees, wetsuits highly recommended. These workouts are free to anyone who would like to attend.
- An interesting study looking at the affect of high intensity interval training (HIIT) on mitochondrial adaptation. Note the study was intentionally taking the HIIT training to excess, and after 2 weeks of HIIT the researchers found serious impairment to mitochondrial function and glucose tolerance, as well as a plateau in power output. There is no doubt that HIIT training is important to reach peak fitness, but for the long course triathlete a good recommendation may be to find the "lowest effective dose" to trigger the response you're looking for.
