This month we have attached two articles:

1. Training Analysis of Five Elite Junior Cross Country Skiers.
A very good, interesting thesis by Per Ola Gasman who analyzes five very successful Norwegian junior skiers. The skiers are among the Worlds best juniors and the article (a summary of the thesis) looks at training hours, intensity, training proportions, testing and time-trials.

2 Principles of Training. Translation from the book “Endurance”. The principle in focus this time is recovery and looks at the need for recovery following different types of activities and training loads. These are must-know principles for athletes, coaches, or anyone wanting to optimize their training quality and push their limits.

Please feel free to provide us with comments on these articles, as well as offer suggestions for subjects you would like covered in the future.
Best regards,
