In this webinar we are going to take a close look at using anaerobic threshold / FTP for prescribing training intensities. What might be the possible limitations and most common errors in using anaerobic threshold / FTP as the sole performance benchmark? Watch the webinar:


  • The physiological definition of anaerobic threshold

  • Intensity in competition vs. anaerobic threshold …when does it matter?
  • Same relative intensity – same energy supply?! How does the metabolic profile of an athlete effect the energy supply at a certain intensity? Are there differences between athletes?
  • Same relative intensity – same physiological trigger? How does the metabolic profile of an athlete effect the training stimulus at a given intensity?
  • Other metrics to decide on training intensities ?!
