Endurance sports continue to grow in popularity, with millions of people participating in events each year. To sustain such prolonged activities, athletes need a high level of aerobic and muscular fitness that can only be achieved through a properly designed training program constructed to optimize endurance performance.

Developing Endurance, Second Edition, is your guide to developing effective endurance training programs. Written by 14 of the top National Strength and Conditioning Association experts, the book provides a physiological overview of endurance sports and explains how resistance, flexibility, and aerobic training all contribute to better performance.

You’ll find technique guidelines and photos for resistance training and plyometric exercises that are specific to endurance sports. Multiple tests for assessing aerobic endurance enable you to evaluate and monitor ongoing changes in performance. Plus, an updated chapter about warm-up methods and techniques as well as a new chapter about programming for obstacle course racing make this the definitive edition of this trusted resource.

With training programs for running, cycling, swimming, triathlon, and obstacle course racing, Developing Endurance takes the guesswork out of creating personalized training programs that help avoid plateaus and take performance to the next level.
