Paul Laursen from HIIT Science focuses on the application of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) for triathlon.
Beginning with the key demands of the sport, the lecture focus is on the key HIIT methods that can be applied by coaches to elicit the desired physiological responses for optimal training adaptation and performance. While the webinar includes theoretical knowledge to facilitate understanding, it mostly focuses on the practical application to help you deliver measurable gains in your athletes.
Founder of HIIT Science, Paul Laursen was the former Physiology Manager of High Performance Sport New Zealand, Adjunct Professor at AUT University and Associate Professor at Edith Cowan University.
Paul Laursen is an author, endurance coach, high-performance consultant and entrepreneur.
Paul was formerly employed as the Physiology Manager for High Performance Sport New Zealand, and has retained former joint role as Adjunct Professor of Exercise Physiology at Auckland University of Technology. The purpose of his role was to reside at the nexus between theory, research and application of sport science and physiology for high-performance sport. Paul has a broad area of research interests that include high-intensity interval training, heart rate variability, thermoregulation, health and artificial intelligence application to training.
He has published over 135 refereed manuscripts in moderate-to-high impact exercise and sports science journals, with this work cited more than 10,000 times. He has competed in 17 IRONMAN triathlon races and continue to train and prepare for future events. Co-inventor of Floe Bottle, the world's first insulated ice slushy bottle, which assists to promote internal cooling for athletes and workers and co-founder of HIIT Science, an online educational platform that aims to teach the science and application of high-intensity interval training.
