143. Fact or Fiction: Interference Effect Between Strength and Endurance Training

The interference effect between strength and endurance training has long been seen as having a detrimental impact on overall training outcomes. But, recent research has shown that the opposite may be true. Which means training both strength and endurance at the same time (concurrent training) may be beneficial. The key is to manage a certain set of factors, as I discuss in this episode.

Give this episode a listen to learn how to decide if concurrent training is for you, and how you can incorporate strength and endurance training sessions in a single day.🎧
