COD-Left Ventricle Hypertrophy or Left Out of the Game?


Cardiac Output Development (COD), like Repeat Sprint Ability, is another way to do more conditioning in hopes to be in better shape for team sports. Many forums are busy talking about this but where is the data on recovery? Some experts will refer to the specific tables of HRV but energy system development supports the velocity needs of athletes, not just going through the Krebs cycle for fun. One parent contacted a coach yesterday asking what they could do to get on varsity as the athlete didn’t make the squad after the summer of great conditioning. The athlete’s skills were good enough but they were not getting to the ball fast enough over and over again. Good programs cover the bases naturally and worrying about specific zones is fruitless.
