Learn How to Target Your Weaknesses by Training the Right Muscle Fiber Types

Do you ever wonder why some runners are better at shorter distances while others are far more suited to longer distances?

Well, a lot of this has to do with the type of muscle fibers you’re predisposed to having.

But, what many runners don’t know is that there are ways to train to specifically target certain muscle fiber types and thus improve our weaknesses.

In today’s episode, Coach Andie is going to take an in-depth look at muscle fibers to better understand how they influence your training.

You’ll learn what the different muscle fiber types are and what they do and how to specifically target each in your training.

Now, don’t worry, you don’t need a science degree to follow along, she’ll keep it simple.

Delta G

Ketones have been one of the most well-researched chemicals when it comes to endurance performance. Their only downside is that it typically takes 2 days of fasting for your body to produce them in quantities that would help your performance

But, thanks to deltaG and collaborations from the US Military and researchers from NIH and the University of Oxford, they’ve developed a ketone drink that can boost your ketone levels to those seen after 2 days of fasting in just 20 minutes.

The academic literature on the effectiveness of ketones for running performance is overwhelming. If you want to see more of the research, head to runnersconnect.net/deltag

Mobility Wall

We all know how important foam rolling is for staying injury-free and just plain feeling better for every run.

But, let’s face it, many of us skip it because clearing out space on the floor feels like too much work, the pressure is too painful and difficult to control, or you can’t seem to hit the right spots.

That’s why I was so amazed when I saw the door-mounted foam roller from Mobility Wall.

The Mobility Wall device mounts to your doorframe in just a few seconds and is easy to move up and down the frame in just a few seconds.

Not only does this get you off the ground and ready to foam roll in just a few seconds, it also allows you to easily hit muscles in your neck and shoulders that aren’t possible with a traditional foam roller.

Even better, because you’re off the ground, you don’t have to control gravity to adjust the pressure. You simply use upward and inward pressure, which is much easier to control. The days of painful foam rolling are over.

If you’ve been wanting to get more consistent with your injury-prevention work this year, the Mobility Wall foam roller will be a game changer. I can’t believe how much more I’ve been foam rolling since I started using it.

Plus, we’ve got a special offer for you. Just go to mobilitywall.com/RTTT or enter RTTT at checkout for 20% off your first order. Plus, it comes with a free app that gives you video instructions on exactly how to hit every area.
