Are you looking for progress in your endurance sport ? Through utilizing "The Norwegian Endurance Model" I have achieved great results for both my coaching athletes and myself. Often in combination with a hectic professional career and family life. In 2017 and 2020 I became the Norwegian National Champion in long distance triathlon.

I would like to challenge everyone that want to improve their endurance to look into the Norwegian Endurance Model, developed by the Norwegian Elite Sport program (OLT):
«EXCERSISE MUCH, BUT DO IT ON LOW INTENSITY!».
THE Norwegian Elite Sport program (OLT) was founded in 1988, and since then the database of performance data has been accumulated. Through a detailed analysis it has been possible to describe what Norwegian athletes has done in order to be world champions in summer and winter sports. Examples are: Medium and long distance running (Ingebrigtsen brothers), 70.3 Ironman World Champion 2019 (Gustav Iden), XC Skiing -male and -female world cup champions year by year and so on..
There is no magic behind it - There is a strong focus to distinguish between high and low intensity exercising. High intensity training and intervals should be longer and below lactate threshold rather than faster and above. And the idea is by staying away from moderate intensity on those low intensity days you are able to train harder on the high intensity days.
The Norwegian Endurance Model an be summarized with three main points:
