Cross-country running is a challenging and at the same time fascinating specialty. In this type of race the athlete is in direct contact with nature and tries to challenge it, overcoming muddy stretches, climbs, descents, holes and natural obstacles. The fields are run in the winter periods and are often used to prepare the spring and summer season

As we have seen in the dedicated articles (" The middle-distance of athletics - importance of strength and endurance " and "Fast mid-distance in light athletics - 800 and 1500m"), both aerobic power and power are essential in fast middle distance lactic acid tolerance; below we will go into detail and examine the methods, means and planning of the training more accurately
What is fast walking? Fast walking is an aerobic fitness or wellness activity (depending on the individual goal) that is extremely widespread both in Italy and abroad. An advanced expression of the extremely natural ambulatory movement, even the movement of the fast walk can be defined as an "inverted pendulum" (a gesture shared by any animal with legs / legs, even if sometimes with very different motor patterns)
Running is a sporting discipline that takes place mainly in the open air and also in particular environmental conditions; on the other hand, there are machines that can reproduce (relatively effectively) the athletic gesture of the race but, to have the possibility to run regardless of the external climatic conditions, it was necessary to "distort" part of the specific athletic gesture (a marginal aspect for the MA fitness run essential in sports running )
What is Isometry Definition of isometry Isometry is a form of static muscle contraction. The term "isometric" combines the Greek words "Isos" (equal) and "metria" (measure); it means that in these executions (for example a training exercise) the length of the muscle and the joint angle do not change, although the force of contraction can vary considerably
INSANITY ® is a commercial product that offers a standardized service for a fee; it includes: 10 workouts, a defined "Elite " nutritional plan, a calendar with Tracker Fit Test to monitor progress, and online support. INSANITY ® is a multimedia training program designed by Shaun T , a well-known American personal trainer.
Introduction Fast middle-distance training has evolved over time: from an extensive type of work to an intensive one, based mainly on speed; on the other hand, the exact opposite also happened later, that is that great results were obtained by developing greater resistance to speed on the part of the 400metrists
Lactic acid capacity training: training means Long repeated tests of resistance to speed They are performed over distances of 200-600m and preceded by race-type heating; the speed is always much higher than the speed of competition and the recoveries are passive or mildly active; they have the function of improving the ability to express speed and keep it in the final race
General middle distance prolonged in athletics - 5000 and 10000m The middle distance prolonged in athletics is a discipline that includes distances in which the aerobic metabolism prevails; the In fact, the execution speed is almost directly proportional to the ANAEROBIC THRESHOLD (SA), also called deflection value (vd - obtainable from the Conconi test) even if, above all in the 10
Middle-distance, in all its specialties, is considered a resistance sport ... where resistance can be understood as a conditional ability or a specific expression of muscular work. In any case, resistance always refers to the ability to resist fatigue in long-term exercises. The resistance in middle-distance training of athletics Resistance depends on several factors: Efficiency of cardiocirculatory and respiratory systems Efficiency of the nervous system and the muscular system Volitive and emotional capacity Resistance can be differentiated in various ways; the first distinction concerns the
What is Plyometrics The term Pliometry comes from the Greek and means "increase the size / distance". In the study of human movement, in particular, this term describes a complex type of exercise. Plyometrics and plyometric executions were introduced by the US Fred Wilt, who in 1975 brought them to the attention of the world sports community, describing how " a movement characterized by the succession of a concentric contraction to an eccentric can be a very useful tool in development of some motor-conditional skills (basic and composite) "
