A good pool swimmer is not always fast in open water. Here are some important differences you have to pay attention to when swimming in the wild?
An injury during a preparation or competition phase can severely disrupt the course of the season and lead to a significant reduction in physical performance. The longer the rest phase lasts, the more time must be invested in reconstruction. However, once the physical and psychological setback has been overcome, many positive aspects of the development can be gained.
Why are athletes better under pressure than alone?
Every endurance athlete has had this experience. You train consistently and seriously for a competition. You can feel the work paying off and feel in top shape at some point. Even if there are perhaps a few weeks left until your main race, the “time trial” is now on the agenda as a benchmark. Marathon runners might complete a 20 kilometre session at maximum speed, cyclists do a solo time trial or a mountain they climbed already under racing conditions. And swimmers crawl 1000 to 1500 meters with the goal of being faster this time than they were a month ago.
What is actually the difference between interval training and a multiple steady sessions at comparable intensities?

The impact of the coronavirus has extended far beyond those who have become infected and has changed how everyone lives their day to day life. In these unfamiliar times, amid a global pandemic, it is important to remember that we will get through this and amazing things can still be accomplished. 2PEAK teamed up with orienteering world champion Matthias Kyburz setting out to prove this by breaking the 50 kilometer treadmill world on Thursday April 16th record while helping raise money to for the COVID-19 crisis.
The official measures required by the corona virus regarding social distancing currently make participation in competitions impossible. However, regular exercise and training are still recommended by experts. We know from experience how difficult it is to stay motivated for daily training when the clear training goal is missing. For this reason we at 2PEAK have created the “Social Distance Race Series”.
Swimming pools and the gyms are often closed. It is also currently recommended to stay home whenever possible. Therefore, we have compiled a few sports-specific exercises for your own four walls.
