Editor’s Note: While Sportbladet and Kalla claim this to be a â€œradicalâ€ new form of training, intensity block methods, pioneered by Norweigan Jan Helgerud, have been in use in various forms for some years. Canadian Beckie Scott used this type of training on her way to second place overall in the World Cup in 2006.
Swedish newspaper Sportbladet reports on the training of Charlotte Kalla.
Hard training is going to take Kalla to the top: This is something totally radical.
Norweigan Marit Bjrgen trains the most and hardest of anyone.
Now Charlotte Kalla wants to use the â€œBjrgen-trainingâ€ to reach the top of the world elite. â€œThis is something totally new,â€ says Kalla.
