PART 6: MAXIMIZING YOUR AEROBIC CAPACITY
Athletes are known to push themselves. Aerobic Deficiency Syndrome (ADS) is particularly common in those who push themselves in uphill running.
ADS occurs when the proportion of training is off between high-intensity training and aerobic base training. It’s important to balance high-intensity (zone 3 and above) with low (zone 1) and medium (zone 2) intensity training. Finding that balance between our bodies and our aerobics can lead to better conditioning, improved strength, and even longevity.

He’s seen it, researched it, and discovered ways to overcome the syndrome. In part 6 of his monthly series, The Dirt, he shares what he’s learned.
