Here is an example question posted by a subscriber in the ‘answers’ section:

Q. “What are the best exercises to improve VO2Max quickly?”

A. “ ... Check the Peak Performance report on INTERVAL TRAINING. It tells of a study with 2 Norwegian teams, after 8 wks of twice weekly interval training vo2 max went up by 11 %. It’s a great read, check it out. The answer to your question therefore is INTERVAL TRAINING

The report on interval training mentioned above is included in your trial membership to Peak Performance with around 20 other reports. That may sound a lot, and it is. But you can use specific elements of that advice to cut out and reduce exercises not relevant to your personal requirements.
