    Different strokes for different folks:- Millions of dollars are being spent to quantify and understand the genetic foundations of a phenomenon that athletes already know full well. We all respond differently to a training program. Some athletes can do next to nothing for three months then train vigorously, sweat, and spew chunks for three weeks and achieve racing shape. Others are "hard gainers" who seem to lose everything if they miss a week of training. From numerous research studies involving untrained people starting an endurance training program it is clear that, on average, three months of regular endurance exercise of appropriate intensity and duration will result in a 15-20% increase in maximal oxygen consumption, in people with typical VO2 max. values. But what these results do not say is that one or two amongst each of those groups will increase by only 3 or 4%, and one or two others will increase by 35%, despite identical training! This is very valuable information for the athlete to understand, whether 24 or 64. But remember: ANY exact training program that you copy from me or someone else is destined to be, at best, an approximation of what will work best for you; and, at worst, a total failure.
