I love the summer as it gives me time to catch up on some reading, watch the Red Sox, head to the Cape and RI, and watch some good videos. Anyone interested in the most precious time of the year, the taper phase, may find Dr. Mujika’s work to be beneficial. I like his work as he represents the next wave of sport scientist that is actually working with elite athletes and sharing practical information and real performance. Team sport people should also look at the information as detraining and maintaining are often factors in the long competitive season. His video is in english and the video can be found here. What’s nice about the presentations you can find on that website you see honest interest in sharing and not promotion.
