Andrew Musgrave (GBR): Season planning
Season 2013/14 was very successful for Great Britain’s Andrew Musgrave. “Muzzy” cracked top 30 in the sprint at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, won sprint at the Norwegian National’s in Molde. Now, the 24-year old skier is looking ahead to the next winter.
Musgrave is going to to put on some extra training hours in his training log. “I have increased the total volume by about 40 hours, which isn’t a huge amount over 365 days. During the early summer I will be putting an extra focus on core-stability, balance and flexibility. Hopefully this will allow me to become a technically better and more efficient skier. Throughout the summer I will be doing a lot of work roller-skiing without poles, also to help me improve technically,” Musgrave reveals on www.teamleaseplan.no.
FIS Nordic World Ski Championships will be the highlight of the next season and Musgrave is going to modify the training program just a little bit. “Over the course of the last few years I have noticed that I tend to have a form-peak 1 to 2 weeks after the Tour de Ski,” he explains and continues: “this season I am going to try having a couple of intensity bulks, to mimic racing the Tour, and hopefully get the same form-boosting effect. I am planning on putting in 1 intensity bulk just prior to the season start, and 1 just before the World Championships in Falun.”
