"The Individual Pursuit: Demands And Preparation"

The picture above is from a Powerpoint presentation about the physical and technical demands of the Individual Pursuit and how to train for it.  The presentation was given by Dr. Andrew Coggan to the Pan American Sports Organization in 2005.  Unfortunately I did not attend but the original .ppt file has been available on Fixed Gear Fever.  However, without the presence of the presenter, the Powerpoint file is just a bunch of graphs that I’ve never really been able to make any sense out of.

Well, finally Dr. Coggan has transcribed his presentation to the written word and it is a great read.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re a pursuiter or not, you should take a look.  The article is split into three parts:

Part 1 - Physiological Characteristics Of Pursuiters & “The Teeter-Totter”

Part 2 - Physical & Physiological Factors

Part 3 - Technical Factors & Individual Differences
