Athlete training is characterized by two opposing processes that make up one whole. On the one hand, this is a decrease in working capacity as a result of the training work performed (and the higher the load, the more significantly the working capacity is reduced), on the other hand, it is its restoration and super-recovery.
A systematic increase in the volume and intensity of training loads is an indispensable condition for the growth of sports results. But the process of intensification of the training process cannot take place without creating favorable conditions for recovery processes. Recovery activities should be rationally combined with training at various stages of the training and competitive activities of the athlete. The use of restorative means should not interfere with the training process, but help it, increasing the speed of restorative processes. Continue reading
In view of the foregoing, we proceed directly to the training. Where to begin? Start your workout with a run of ten or fifteen laps around the stadium, as you understand, calculating the mileage in the park area or along the shore of a reservoir will be much more difficult. And so, in a good, vigorous state of mind and body, you come to the place of training, having a chronometer with you to measure the running time and run a predetermined distance (after doing an easy warm-up of the main muscle groups involved in the dynamic load of your body).
