Measuring and Using Fatigue with Dr. Alex Koch – The Barbell Life 292

I was at Lenoir-Rhyne the other day talking with Dr. Alex Koch – and the subject of fatigue came up.

It’s a subject that has fascinated Dr. Koch, and now I’m fascinated too. Just think of the possibilities to maximize progress (and avoid problems like overtraining and injury) when we can dial in just the right amount of fatigue.

It was such a great conversation that I had to get Alex on the podcast to talk some more.

How much fatigue should an athlete have at each part of their training cycle?
How much fatigue should they have over the course of a training session?
What is the right amount of fatigue?
How do you adjust a program if an athlete is particularly fatigued?
How do you practically manage all of this if you’re coaching a large group of athletes?

Listen in to find out the answers…
