Training the Masters Athlete


There are four key considerations in training the masters athlete:

  1. Strength Training assumes a greater role because of it’s positive effects on posture and the positive impact on Type II fibers.
  2. Flexibility plays a greater role – more mobility work daily. Both active and passive.
  3. More recovery between hard training sessions.
  4. Forget the last good workout you did when you were in your twenties. Accept where you are and train accordingly.
