    Hi everyone, I have a question about the training modalities according to my own "genetic" heritage. I read a lot about A&A and alactic training. In high school, I was a sprinter and I trained a lot with long rest between sprints. So those protocols are not really new for me. Since I was a...

  14. Other/Mixed Training while recovering from inflammation of the knee
