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.

The 2PEAK Battery Explained

A big topic that comes with training is your recovery. This takes almost just as much discipline as the actual training and can be improved by a lot of things (reduce stress, increase amount of sleep…). When you log into your 2PEAK account, you can see a battery icon in the top right hand corner. This article is all about explaining what happens behind this battery, what it stands for and how you can use it to your advantage.

2PEAK “Social” Feature

We have features here at 2PEAK, which get used less than others. We’d like to create some awareness of the 2PEAK Social Feature, which you should definitely try out, if you’re fed up with training for hours all by yourself or you can’t find any good raining routes in new places.
