Holy shit! Is that what tapering is? I really thought it was when you reduce training to a maintenance level before a big event (say the Olympics). I didn't realize it was drinking beer in a hammock. Thanks Ben.
Certainly, there are many strategies to improve performance and everyone responds differently, but tapering as one. What you didn't or don't know could fill volumes. Try reading one of Eric Horst's or Arno Ilgner's books on training, and we'll taper on, with the system and beverage of our choice. The Olympics......oh, please, enlighten us, Murf, about your experience training for big events/the Olympics.
Now where did I put that beverage? Submitted By: Benjamin Chapman on Nov 12, 2013
