Recensie(s)

Read this book if: you struggle with your own endurance goals but know you are capable of far greater output. Buy this book for friends who: have a penchant for type II or type III fun. Live for the uphill slog and have big lofty dreams of mammoth ascents. --StillStoked.com For mountain-endurance athletes who want to get serious about their training, this is the book. It distills three lifetimes' worth of knowledge and experience between Kilian, Johnston, and House and makes it accessible to everyone. While diving into processes like glycolysis and the Krebs cycle might give you flashbacks to high school biology, the book is surprisingly easy to understand, and it's interspersed with beautiful imagery, athlete stories from the likes of Mike Foote, Emelie Forsberg, Clare Gallagher, Rickey Gates, and Dakota Jones, and Notes From Kilian, which keep the pace moving as well as provide interesting tips and anecdotes. --Outside This book provides a rigorous, scientific, and individualized approach to training and coaching for competitive mountain sport endurance athletes and coaches, as well as for beginners. -- Foreword Reviews Covering how to write individualized training plans and achieve endurance goals, athletes who feel the most at home in the mountains-whether it's skiing, running, climbing, or all three-will find the book an authoritative guide on getting the most of their high-altitude time. --www.5280.com Steve House is one of the World's best mountaineers, and his coach Scott Johnston is an Olympic-level, cross country ski coach. Along with Kilian, they have written a must-read book for anyone serious about the uphill - Training for the uphill athlete. --StillStoked.com
