Peak/Peaking means you are arriving on race day mentally and physically prepared to be able to deliver your strongest possible performance. The art of peaking requires smart, creative scheduling for a proper taper.

The most common mistakes athletes make regarding taper are:

  • Too much or too little intensity
  • Too much volume
  • Not enough recovery

Other factors that can negatively affect performance include the quality of rest, levels of life stress, travel logistics and diet.
