Jan Olbrecht's Book on Training

In this book, Jan Olbrecht lays out his approach to training which emphasizes the training of the muscle's energy systems. This is the same approach he uses to advise such world class swimmers as Pieter van den Hoogenband and Ironman world record holder, Luc Van Lierde. No training zones or heart rates because each athlete must have individual training based on their conditioning profile which includes how their energy systems will interact during training and competition. Jan uses an unique method of lactate testing to assess the athletes he advises because it is the only way he can get the necessary information to train them correctly. He is a maestro.
