Threshold vs. Polarized Training – Steve Neal

by | Feb 13, 2018 | Podcast, Training

Steve Neal returns to the Consummate Athlete to discuss just one question – How do you reconcile the popularity of Threshold training with all the hype on Polarized and 80:20 training? We talk about how Steve uses these concepts in his own practice at the Cycling Gym in Toronto with busy masters athletes.
