🇺🇸 Head Coach - XC Ski Team
Breath. So the question is, how many hours do you train in a year? And I'm a coach. So I'm just going to answer sort of based on perhaps what our team does, our team on the World Cup trains on the low end at around six hundred and fifty six hundred and 80 hours per year. Those would be younger skiers all the way up to at the extreme end 12:00 a year. However, the right amount of training is the amount. That you as an athlete can absorb and because there's nothing more simple than just going out and training a lot. The question is, does that volume of training make you any faster? And for a lot of people more is not better. So we tend to increase from the young age. We tend to increase volume by just general rule of thumb by 10% or something like that, you know, 50 hours a year. Could be added. So as a junior might do for fifty one year and then 500 the next all the way up to, you know, maybe close to 9:00 as the senior racer later in one's career, the volume tends to tends to plateau. And you might be stuck at 100 or 150 or 9:00 a year for multiple years in a row. The variations within those years then are based more on the type of training that build up. Those are ours. Volume is just one. One simple metric was a lot else in there.
