Got the book for Christmas - have pretty much devoured it by the first week of January 6 janvier 2015
Par A. Tackett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Got the book for Christmas - have pretty much devoured it by the first week of January. Working on my training plan for the Spring and will be using many of the concepts and principles.

On the positive side, the book is very well researched. Expect nothing less from Mr. Friel. Also, the overall structure of the book is well laid out – plenty of information on the front end with good prescriptive actions on the back end. If I could sum up the book, the advice is 1.) do less long, slow training, 2.) do more intervals, 3.) do more strength training, and 4.) get more sleep.

I would not call this a book for beginners. If this is the first and only book you reference, then I think there will be some frustration. The book is very technical, and there will be a good deal of page flipping to re-familiarize yourself with the terms.

For example, Mr. Friel uses the terms Aerobic Capacity, Lactate Threshold, and Aerobic Threshold quite frequently. You will need to get the definition of these in your head because they are the foundation of the endurance training principles. Other authors have used expressions like Speed, Stamina and Easy, respectively, for these same concepts. That seems simple and straightforward. I think because the word “threshold” is repeated twice and the word “aerobic” is repeated twice (between three separate terms), it can lead to confusion.

Also, I found the Periodization section to be a bit more advanced – a total of seven different phases. I think part of this was because there were four different Strength Training phases. Again, I lot of terms to learn and get familiar with. Chapter Six (Advanced Training) is not a light read.

And speaking of Chapter Six, on page 179, in the first full paragraph on that page, the author states, “… and you are starting the Build period.” Based on the examples in the following paragraphs, I believe he meant to reference the Late Base period. Either Table 6.6 is incorrect or the example is incorrect. Not a big deal but an example of the complexity of this material.

One concept new to me (that I will begin to use in my training) is the Efficiency Factor as explained on page 143 and following (Chapter 5, Training Basics, subsection “Aerobic-Threshold Test”). Again, too complicated to explain in this review, but suffice to say that it is a great way to us a heart rate monitor and your average speed to gauge improvements to fitness. Great concept.

Like most other self help books 7 février 2015
Par John - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There is no question about the knowledge, experience, and popularity of Joe Friel. This book however, is the least helpful and weakest of his efforts. Like most other self help books, the entire message can be boiled down to 1-2 sentence message, in this case it is that the LSD (long slow distance) rides, so called " junk miles" that most of us use do not have the impact on our fitness that we would like or hope but rather one needs to add high intensity interval training to increase or maintain (against aging-induced losses) fitness. We all know this don't we? If you do not already lift weights to increase strength, he tells you to do that too but leaves you to find out how to do this on your own. The addition of scattered citations from the scientific literature are used to provide authority and endorsement but glaringly appear to be cherry-picked to support his views. Rarely, if at all, is it the case in the real scientific world (I'm a reaarch scientist) that all work supports your view hence - likely cherry-picked. If you own any of his other training books, you already have everything that is in this one. Really nothing new here - sorry Joe.

A comprehensive and detailed guide to development of athletic excellence for the senior endurance athlete 21 janvier 2015
Par Le Manchot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Ageing and the impact of ageing on the competitive athlete beyond age 50 is something that has not been written about in book form before. Friel has undertaken a substantial task and done a very good job with the subject matter. The physiologic changes that negatively affect athletic performance beyond age 50 (and to a lesser extent beyond age 40) are fairly drastic as any committed senior athlete can tell you. Friel develops a detailed framework to allow one to understand these changes and the ramifications on performance and then offers a training approach to slow down or possibly even delay the rate of decline. The current state of understanding is nicely summarized in a quote from page 108 of the book:

“This brings us back to the big three- the primary determiners of performance decline with age according to sport science. To refresh your memory, these are declining aerobic capacity, increasing body fat, and loss of muscle mass.”

Friel’s recipe for combating age-related performance decline therefore involves a primary focus on high-intensity workouts, methods for reduction of body fat, and heavy load strength workouts. It is proposed that these three areas are the keys to high performance as a senior athlete.

The book is structured in two parts where Part I (about 1/3 of the book) reviews the literature and describes Friel’s own experience with physiologic changes going on in the human body. This establishes a base-line of what we are up against. Part II describes the various ways that the changes discussed in Part I can be addressed from the perspective of a competitive athlete. Part II includes a substantial amount of guidance on training plans and suggested workouts (along with good appendices that elaborate on work outs in greater detail) as well as discussions of diet and recovery. It is quite comprehensive, if you subscribe to this style of training.

Friel has done a good job of dancing around the whole “diet” morass that is extant. Although he lauds a so-called Paleo diet (and has co-authored a book on the subject with one of the Paleo cult’s pseudo-scientific leaders) he is quick to point out that there is no one diet that works for everyone and that the task is to to determine what works for you.

Friel has written a comprehensive and detailed guide to development of athletic excellence for the senior endurance athlete. The book also provides detailed training recommendations and structures with specific work out descriptions. For the senior endurance athlete, this book will serve well as a reference and as the basis of an operative program for achieving one's potential. Highly recommended.

Clear roadmap to being the best 50+ athlete you can be 29 décembre 2014
Par Patricia S. Caldeira - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I pre-ordered this book and I'm glad I did! It's great and has answered a lot of my questions about how to modify my training plan for 2015 and beyond. I subscribe to Joe's blog, so I knew he recommended adding more high intensity training to slow performance losses or even make gains as we age. However, I wanted to know how to do that without burning myself out. After all, high intensity work is painful and requires suffering. After reading this book, I have a clear understanding of how to add the high intensity work and what other types of training I need to do throughout the year. It all seems very doable.

Not getting slower as you get older...age is just a number. 2 février 2015
Par Jeffrey Fritts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Joe Friel is 70, he said so in the prologue of this book. This book published in 2015 has the latest information for endurance athletes who have had more birthdays than they want to admit but are still proud of the title Senior Athlete. A world renowned coach and author this book Fast After 50 brings together scientifically backed research with practical recommendations to race strong for the rest of your life. I am not a racer but want to keep healthy and keep up on club rides with my younger friends. Following the ideas of this book has not only physically, but mentally improved my game. One of the things I found particularly interesting was this is the second book Joe has written about senior athletes. Cycling Past 50 was written by Joe when he was 53 in 1998. At that time there was not a lot of research about the aging process and Joe recognized this and as a result wrote this updated volume that included runners, skiers, swimmers, and triathletes. You are not as old as your drivers license says you are, you are only as old as you feel and the guidelines given by Joe Friel and many other contributors can help ward off that old age feeling.
