Since attending the Bozeman ME seminar I’ve been all in with the ME training. It’s been noticeably effective, so thank you for the additional protocol to add to my training toolkit.
One take-away from the seminar was the weight adjustments that need to be made for fast twitch vs slow twitch dominant athletes. I fall into the fast twitch category, so was really piling on the weight for the nordic season. In the end I was up to 75 lbs in the pack while doing V1/V2 skate ski hop drills in a controlled environment due to not feeling all that safe going on the trails with that much weight on my back. This was following the ME nordic protocol by maintaining a low Z1/Z2 HR for multiple 8-10min intervals, with the same amount of rest in between.
Now that spring is upon us I’ll be transitioning to the hill climb method in prep for trail running. My question is should I expect to bump up the additional weight to the same amount I was using for the nordic method? or should I reset the formula and drop back down to the prescribed 10-20% body weight and go for longer sessions?
I know there’s going to be some experimentation involved, but would appreciate your advice on where I should be targeting here at the beginning as a fast twitcher.
