- How the body's response to training changeswith age, how to adapt your training plan, and how to avoid overtraining
- How to shed body fat and regain muscle density
- How to create a progressive plan for training, rest, recovery, and competition
- Workout guidelines, field tests, and intensity measurement
In Fast After 50, Joe Friel shows athletes that age is just a number-and race results are the only numbers that count.
