Quarantine / Lockdown: education and resources for your free time

Now that we've established that training will likely be a lower volume than planned, many athletes will have some extra time (and they may have extra time at home anyway because of self-isolation). Here are some useful things that you can do to use that time effectively to become a more knowlegeable athlete.

Kilian Jornet shared his Summits of My Life videos for free so we all have something awesome to watch while on the home trainer or treadmill. He also shared a list of resources that he uses for organizing his training and planning:

Jonathan Marcus and Steve Magness have offered one month for free of their High Performance West Scholar Coaching Mentorship Program. This is an amazing opportunity to "learn about the history, science, and art of coaching distance running". The program is available at High Performance West and the code for a free month is: BetterTogether.

HIITScience is offering large discounts on their training courses.

These are tough times. Many of us have been asked to stay at home to slow the spread of coronavirus meaning we are unable to coach, teach or practice as usual. We all have our part to play. For those who want to use their added time for professional development, HIIT Science will be offering our largest discount ever across our online course offerings for individuals and institutions. Until the end of March, use this code for 40% off any of our course packages: HIITSCIENCE40.

ALTIS is offering a 20% on all of their courses with the code ALTISEDUCATE. There are plenty of courses on coaching, performance therapy, and various track and field disciplines.

Martin Gibala and Stuart Phillips have offered a free course on Coursera called: "Hacking Exercise For Health. The surprising new science of fitness". This course aims to:

teach the surprising new science of cardio fitness and strength-building—and then provide you with hacks to get fit and strong (and healthy!) in less time than you ever thought possible... [it's] a course designed to provide even the most inexperienced of exercisers the tools you need to design time-efficient workouts that can be done virtually anywhere.

The lecture on "Protein for weight loss" at mysportsscience academy is currently available for free. You can also read my notes on all the courses from the 2019 LPC Nutrition conference here:

Sport2Health is offering access to their Ready, Set, Go package free of charge to anyone who wishes to join, and it will remain free to access initially until 1st July 2020 but will be extended until we have overcome Covid 19.
