The Lactate Myth

Lactate is often loooked at as the main
performance limiting factor. But this has long since been scientifically proved wrong. 2PEAK has the facts on lactate and lactate diagnosis.

The Importance of Training With Power and 2PEAK

Power on the Bike

It is common for athletes to define their fitness by average speed. However, since speed depends on a number of external factors in both running and cycling, an objective value is needed to give a meaningful indication of fitness level: performance.

The science behind 2PEAK’s 3D Model

Authored by Dr. Piero Fontana, PhD, our scientific advisor.*

Introduction:
2PEAK training planning is based on state of the art science and therefore takes into account the latest findings in performance physiology.

We will show you how endurance performance is delineated and classified on a scientific basis. In further articles we will show how these scientific facts influence modern training planning and how, thanks to the newest knowledge, you can increase your performance quicker and more specifically.

2PEAK’s Training philosophy

Periodization

The Training Plan runs the training based on the well-known principle of periodization developed in training physiology. This means that specific forms of load and relief follow each other in a continuous sequence. For enthusiasts and competitive athletes a ratio of 3:1 has been determined as most effective. This means that after 3 days of load, one day of relief is given (this may be an easy day or a complete day off). Usually the duration increases within a block while the intensity declines. Normally two blocks of this nature build a Micro cycle lasting one week. Of course 2PEAK takes into account that the 3 sports of a triathlete are interdependent, but also include the opportunity to continue to train your upper body while your legs are exhausted.
