How do biathletes train? How should they train? And how can they avoid overtraining?

In the BIU’s latest podcast interview, Andrea Zattoni, who has been working as a coach with the Italian Winter Sports Federation for 15 years, discusses training (both during the season and in the summer), how to spot the signs of overtraining, maintaining a good balance between training and recovery, and the importance of training smart, versus training hard.

Greg McKenna, Head of the BIU comments: “Providing athletes with education on training smart promotes integrity by instilling discipline, self-awareness, and resilience. Athletes who train wisely, listen to their bodies, and avoid shortcuts build physical and mental strenght, hence resist pressures to cheat or take performance-enhancing drugs”.
