Muscular endurance workouts are hard. It’s hard to recover from them as quickly as, say, a core strength or general strength workout. And, similar to other high-intensity work, are good to tackle in a time-bound block. Putting that together, once you have the capacity to add some muscular endurance work, you might target a 6-10 week block and space the workouts out to once every 5-10 days depending on how long it takes to recover.
I figure I’m probably just misreading something here, but I’m a bit confused by the instructions for strength in the base period as laid out in the tftUA book. Base period advises 2x general or specific strength sessions per week. I’ve passed all the strength assessments and should be focusing on specific strength now. The recommended specific strength program in the book seems to be almost wholly ME focused (great, I could do with working on this for running!). My confusion is that per the base period strength recommendation I should be doing specific strength work 2x/wk, but according to the specific strength/ME section, this type of workout should only be 1x/wk at most. Apologies if I’m missing something obvious, but if someone can add a bit of clarity it’d be much appreciated!
