Week 9:  Time to Taper

By Harry Pino
PhD, EPC, Senior Clinical Exercise Physiologist, Sports Performance Center, NYU Langone Medical Center

“The hay is in the barn!”  You’ve done the bulk of the work, now be sure to seal all that great training with a period of rest and reduced training that immediately precedes an event, a taper.  When done correctly, tapering can significantly boost your performance.  This phase is probably the most underestimated training phase, but if not followed, you may find yourself beginning the NYC Century Bike Tour on “empty.” Not advisable.
