Jan Olbrecht's Book on Training

In this book, Jan Olbrecht lays out his approach to training which emphasizes the training of the muscle's energy systems. This is the same approach he uses to advise such world class swimmers as Pieter van den Hoogenband, Inge de Bruijn, Marleen Veldhuis, Ranomi Kromowidjojo, Kyle Chalmers, Duncan Scott, Florent Manaudou, Arno Kamminga, Ferry Weertman, Erika Brown, Molly Hannis, Jordan Crooks, Daniel Wiffen, and David Popovici.

Also, Ironman world champion, Luc Van Lierde. Other triathletes are Kathleen Smet, Bart Aernouts, and Rutger Beke. Olympic gold-winning rowers Marit van Eupen and Kirsten van der Kolk, as well as runners Isaac Kimeli and Hugo Hay.

No training zones or heart rates because each athlete must have individual training based on their conditioning profile which includes how their energy systems will interact during training and competition. Jan uses an unique method of lactate testing to assess the athletes he advises because it is the only way he can get the necessary information to train them correctly. He is a maestro.

His original book, "Training Lactate Pulse Rate" was published by Polar and was primarily a book on how to use heart rate monitors for training. Despite the new book's title, this book is also a primer on how to use heart rate monitors for training.
