Reply To: Do you think USRPT is same as HIT or HIIT?
I think a lot of people lump them together. I think the way some people do certain HIIT sets make them similar to USRPT. But that doesn’t make all HIIT USRPT or all USRPT HIIT. The problem is when people assume USRPT is done at maximal effort. Race Pace doesn’t always mean maximal effort. That is a big difference.
I have another question. The article said “HIT group only performed ~6,500 yards of high speed training a week. To note, this volume is far less than advocated by USRPT.”
So how much race pace yards per week is recommended in USRPT?
