The ultimate questions: How much is too much, or is that enough? Today we walk through understanding the body and how you make gains or create losses in fitness based on minimal effective dose. We talk about the difference between Ironman and 70.3 training and how different athletes need different volumes. We also look at how best to approach Zone 2 workouts along with when you should make a decision to smash your legs.
