Plan Description

Based on the studies published by Rønnestad et al., 2014a the aim of this training plan is to keep your fitness or Chronic Training Load (CTL) high and stable, reduce your fatigue or Acute Training Load (ATL) and to get your freshness or Training Stress Balance (TSB) to around +ve 10
Tapering works by producing an incredible array of positive changes for athletes, including augmented glycogen stores, increased aerobic enzymes, expanded blood plasma, upgraded economy, better repair of muscle and connective-tissue trauma, improved neuromuscular coordination, and heightened mental confidence.

This is a great way for the time-poor athlete to add the elements of a traditional taper on a more realistic time schedule of 2 weeks.

This high-intensity low-volume taper plan is reported to improve endurance by ~22 percent.
