Thread: gpp for masters

  1. #11
    John,you stated that a MASTERS ATHLETE should reduce trhe volume by about 75% would an example be in week 3
    instead of 3x6x40m hills i would only do 1x5x40m hills.
    And what would be a good diet.High protein med to low carbs or high carbs with protein.It can get confusing.
    Thanks for all the replies.

    i really dont think you have to cut that much in gpp, 3x3x40m should do the job.

    sorry I meant by around 25% I have edited it.

    I personally find med-high protein with med carbs mostly from fruit and vege works pretty well for me. Things go hay wire when I get tired, adequate rest is vital. For instance this week is a deload week and I'm going

    rest
    rest
    hills and weights (about 50% total of normal)
    rest
    tempo and med ball (about 50% of normal)
    rest
    TT
    rest

    then back to normal training for the next 3 weeks. I have learned the hard way!
