Fast After 50 is for each and every endurance athlete who wants to stay fast for future years.
For runners, cyclists, triathletes, swimmers, and cross-country skiers, getting older doesn’t have to mean getting slower. Drawing from probably the most current research on aging and sports performance, Joe Friel—The usa’s leading endurance sports coach—shows how athletes can race strong and stay healthy way past age 50.
In his groundbreaking book Fast After 50, Friel offers a smart approach for athletes to thrust back the effects of age. Friel shows athletes find out how to extend their racing careers for decades—and race to win.
Fast After 50 presents guidelines for high-intensity workouts, focused strength training, recovery, crosstraining, and nutrition for high performance:
- How the body’s response to training changes with age, find out how to adapt your training plan, and find out how to steer clear of overtraining
- How to shed body fat and regain muscle density
- How to create a progressive plan for training, rest, recovery, and competition
- Workout guidelines, field tests, and intensity measurement
In Fast After 50, Joe Friel shows athletes that age is only a number—and race results are the one numbers that count.
