    This is by far the best book on endurance training I ve ever read and applied on my training The training and racing of seven Ironman distance races and one Ultraman race I did was based on this book, I finished all of the races successfully This book was written before the hype of power meters so, if you are expecting anything about it that s not the book for you The SERIOUS training system is based on a heart rate The SERIOUS acronym, it s intensities and durations are very well explained through the book so, even if you are a beginner, you ll sure understand it The examples that the book brings are great for planning your own season.

    I bought this book on the recommendations of customers and I must admit that I wasn t disapointed Sometimes you don t know what you re going to get when everyone gives a book 5 stars Sometimes it s hard to get an unbiased review.I was pleased with the book and what others have said is true I recommend this book to endurance athletes looking for reasons and explanations on why to train a certain way and what it will do for your body in the long run.However, I am a competetive rower and there were few topics that took rowing into account Most of the training is geared towards running cycling triathetes and not specific to rowing as much as I was hoping Also, there is way too little emphasis on resistance training Most of the book is about setting up a mathmatical training plan and says to devote time sparingly to strength training I m not an expert on other sports, but I do know that power through strength training is vital for a strong pull on those oars I suggest devoting time in the SERIOUS formula to weight training in the gym than the book suggests, especially in the early training weeks.As for the rest of the book, it s great, but it takes a LOT of paperwork Fortunately my wife is handy with MS Excel and plotted all the charts for me with forulas that makes it all easy However, without her I know that I would be daunted and discouraged at the task of making all the charts and calculations by hand In a future updated edition I hope that they make one the book should come with a CDROM loaded with all the charts and formulas, or at least a web site link for downloading them In the 21st century it s good practice to have online content and I hope to see it with this great text book.

    This is a very good systems design book that details how to develop a best available strategy training program to accomplish a goal you set e.g., run a 50 Minute 10K race in late August I know of no other book so good at letting you set a goal and then derive a fully structured training program for meeting that goal based on current optimization theories regarding load HR , workout duriation, periodization
