  • The "Junction"

    The junction is training at a specific intensity while simultaneously having high muscle tension. Think hiking or running up a steep incline, or biking uphill.

    We will spend a great deal of time training at the “Junction” - making adaptations that get to the heart of what creates successful endurance athletes.
