How To Boost Your Performance With Tapering

Whether you’re an elite athlete or recreational competitor, we all want to perform at our best when it matters most.

Training for peak performance involves a few basic components: 1) work hard, 2) eat right, and 3) rest. But it turns out that ‘peaking’ and being your best is more complex than just doing these three things well. To perform maximally, you also have to time these components just right – You have to understand how to taper.

Here’s what you need to know.

What is tapering?

Tapering is planned recovery training (rest!) before an event. In other words, a programmed taper is a formalized reduction in training volume for a specific period of time designed to enhance performance.

There are a lot of misconceptions regarding tapering, but with decades of research on the topic the science is pretty clear – It works, without a doubt.

Will tapering make me lose my fitness?


Many athletes worry that too much rest before their competition will make them lose strength and endurance, but research shows this just isn’t so (Reference 1). Fitness in endurance athletes (measured by maximal aerobic capacity, VO2max) is not lost, but may actually increase following taper.

Along those same lines, with strength/power athletes, short-term complete rest (about one week or less) does not reduce the force-producing capacity of muscle. Rather, the taper has been shown to actually improve strength (2).

That’s exactly what you’re after.

Performance gains after tapering

Tapering has been shown to increase performance in events ranging from swim sprints, cycling time trials, to triathlons.

For any event you can expect taper to increase your performance by about 2-3%. Sure, that doesn’t sound like much, but a few percent points add up FAST, especially during long bouts of high-intenstity endurance competition.

Additionally, an effective taper has been shown to increase bench press and squat performance by 2-3% in strength athletes (3) and throwing distance by 5-6% in track & field athletes (4).

How does it work?

We know that rest and full recovery are important, but why?

Rest effects all levels of physiology (whole body to the molecular levels). And, while we know that 1) rest is necessary for peak performance, and 2) tapering is a great way to rest effectivelybefore a competition, the exact mechanism of this “rest-related augmentation” have yet to be established for strength/power athletes.

With strength, performance increases in the early phase of the taper (one week or less) are likely caused by a reversal of neuromuscular fatigue (5). In other words, reducing training volume gives the neuromuscular system a chance to reach its full potential.

Recent research in endurance athletes has found an interesting cause for taper’s effectiveness at the muscle cell level (6, 7). You might predict that tapering primarily targets endurance athlete’s slow-twitch (aerobic) muscle fibers. However, research has shown that slow-twitch fibers are unaffected by tapering, but fast-twitch fibers, which are 5-8 times more powerful, significantly grow and show improved power output following rest (1).

This improved fast-twitch power may allow for a harder push to the finish line during competition.

How to taper

An effective taper can be implemented in various ways, and generally varies by sport. The data is pretty clear for endurance athletes, but less defined for strength/power athletes.

To peak for endurance competition you would generally want to reduce training volume by about 40-70% for 2-3 weeks prior to produce significant performance benefits. A recent review on strength athletes (similar to endurance) suggests significant performance benefits are attained with a 30-70% reduction in volume (within each training session or less overall training frequency) up to four weeks prior to competition,  while maintaining or slightly increasing intensity (2).

There is no one perfect taper strategy for everyone, so you have to experiment to see what works best for you. However, the key element of tapering for any athlete is volume. To rest effectively, slash your volume while you maintain or slight increase training intensity prior to competition.

The results will speak for themselves.

Take home message 

Tapering is an often overlooked, but it’s a critical component of your training.

Decades of research show that proper tapering 1) does not decrease fitness, 2) effectively improves performance in endurance and strength/power athletes, 3) works through several mechanisms (include neuromuscular and muscle cell adaptions).

Many athletes that train rigorously and eat right don’t actually reach their potential because they overlook one important component – planed rest! If you haven’t incorporated tapering into your pre-competition routine to date, it’s probably time to start.

9 Unexpected Benefits To “Listening To Your Body”

I hear the phrase “listen to your body” thrown around pretty often lately. But since it’s a slightly enigmatic concept, most people don’t really understand what it means or why they should do it. In magazines and social media, you will often see fit, beautiful women holding green juices or eating peanut butter talking about “listening to their bodies.” This naturally leading to the assumption that listening to your body is some kind of diet or anti-diet, but that’s dramatically selling it short.

“Listening to your body” actually just refers to learning how to tune into the way your body talks to you. You’re constantly receiving messages from your body in various forms like hunger, thirst, pain, pleasure, lust, sickness, and the desire to find a bathroom. Every single message is physical; we feel them physically. Some messages feel pleasant, and some feel unpleasant, but that doesn’t mean that the message itself is actually good or bad. In our culture we have such an aversion to feeling uncomfortable or unpleasant feelings that our first impulse upon feeling them is often to suppress those messages as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, when you automatically suppress your body’s messages, you miss out on what the message was here to tell you.

Let’s take appendicitis for example. If you suddenly experience severe abdominal pain and spike a high fever, you go to the doctor to see what’s going on, and you get diagnosed with appendicitis. You probably get treated with either antibiotics or surgery. In this case, the pain and fever were your body’s message to you, and your response was to explore what the message was trying to tell you. It turns out your appendix was trying to say “Hey, I’m infected; help!”

But what if instead of exploring what the message meant, you just ignored it? What if you just took a bunch of painkillers and fever-reducers to suppress the message, and carried on as usual? Most likely, despite “feeling better,” the infection would continue to get worse until you found yourself dealing with a potentially life-threatening ruptured appendix. Listening to your body in a case like this one could actually save your life.

Unfortunately, people rarely seek out solutions for messages that are less loud and clear. Society has us convinced that it’s normal to feel broken and shitty most of the time. Most people live with chronic fatigue, headaches, low back pain, anxiety, and/or poor digestion. They suppress and ignore their body’s messages as best they can, never stopping to explore what the message is there to teach them.

Here’s the truth: humans are meant to feel far more vibrant and wonderful than most people feel nowadays. But you can’t achieve optimal levels of energy and health without learning how to listen to, and interpret, your body’s messages to you. Some messages are easy, like appendicitis. Some may take years of exploration and serious detective work. But the benefits extends far beyond what you’ll find in fitness magazines. Here are some less expected ways your life improves when you learn to listen to your body:

1. Feel less crazy around food


Many women have completely screwed up hunger and fullness signals, thanks to years or decades of intermittent dieting. Many of my clients have spent their entire adult lives suppressing and ignoring their body’s messages around food in an effort to lose weight, and they come to me completely unaware of what it actually feels like to be hungry or full.

As you might imagine, being able to hear your body when it says “I’m hungry” and “I’m full” makes it a helluva lot easier to know when to eat and when to stop. It also makes it easier to know what to eat. Imagine knowing the difference between real cravings and emotional/boredom cravings, and being able to consciously decide which ones you’ll act on!

Doing the work (and yes, trust me, this one often takes a lot of work) to hear and understand your body’s messages around food and eating will make it easier to lose and keep off weight, remove guilt from the eating equation, and erase chronic stress around food. Instead of trying to adhere to random set of rules and restrictions, it becomes mind-blowingly simple: what does my body want right now, and will that make me feel good?

2. Less pain

Many people sit at desks all day, and move only during their workouts. It’s impossible to completely undo the physical stress of a lifestyle like that, but by listening to your body, you can keep the damage to a minimum. Lower back pain isn’t a lifetime sentence, for example. It’s just a message that something needs to be explored and adjusted. Often that means changing the way you sit, stand, move, sleep, or train.

Also, you’ll be less likely to get injured as you increase awareness and start to explore yourself. You’ll move better, get stronger, and become more unbreakable as you listen to how your body feels in each posture, movement, and position.

It’s important to mention here that our society will try to convince you that everyone has chronic pain, and that it’s totally normal to feel broken from your mid twenties on. I challenge you to not accept that, because it’s simply not true.

3. Better workouts


Learn the difference between “good pain,” and “bad pain,” and you’ll know when to safely push yourself at the gym, and when to dial it down a notch.

What does it feel like when you body is craving rest, versus when it’s craving a workout? What does it feel like for your glutes to be firing and functioning properly in a squat, versus your low back or hip flexors to be doing most of the work?

Tuning into your body gives you better information to work with, which leads to better overall durability, as well as stronger muscle contractions. This means better, faster, and safer results at the gym.

4. Better health

Your body tells you when you need to slow down and relax, often in form of subtle signals like tiredness and flareups of old chronic issues. If you ignore those messages, it’ll send louder messages in the form of sickness, injury, panic attacks, or mysterious and seemingly random physical symptoms. By paying attention to your body’s messages, you can avoid a lot of those health issues by catching them early and figuring out what you need, to re-balance and bring yourself back up to 100%. That can mean anything from getting more sleep, prioritizing alone time or intimate bonding, remembering how to truly unwind, or practicing more self-care.

Beyond avoiding sickness though, learning how to tune into your body will also give you the information you need to elevate your day-to-day health from “I feel fine” to “I feel amazing.”

5. More pleasure


One of the side effects of habitually suppressing the body’s uncomfortable messages is that you also automatically suppress a lot of the pleasurable messages! Learning how to tune back into pleasure will helps you identify and pursue more of what feels good for you, bringing more immediate joy and gratification into your life! This applies to movement, sex, friendship, hobbies, and pretty much everything else.

Plus, the brain will strengthen any neural pathways you make it travel down frequently. That means the more you practice tuning into your pleasure messages, the louder and stronger those messages get. (Read: you will be able to experience more intense pleasure.)

6. Sharpen your emotional intelligence

Emotions are physical. They show up in our bodies, so habitually tuning out your body’s signals means you also tune out your emotions! That makes for some seriously confusing adulting. (What do I want to do with my life? Who do I want to date? WHO AM I?!)

Don’t put your brain in charge of shit it’s not qualified to do. It’ll do the best it can, but being in touch with your emotional landscape is crucial if you want to be able to make informed decisions that help you build a rich, fulfilling, authentic, and joyful life.

Start thinking about your emotions. Where in your body do you feel sadness? How about anger? Joy? What does each emotion feel like? Is is cold, warm, soft, or hard? Does it have a color or texture? Is it tight and small, or big and open? Does it move around or sit very still? Get to know your emotions as physical experiences, and then start noticing when they show up.

This will offer you some CIA level intelligence when it comes to what you need and what’s going on for you. Maybe your brain doesn’t know you’re mad yet, but the cold tightening feeling in your belly when you see your partner says otherwise.  Access to this data will truly transform your life.

7. Stronger intuition


Much like emotions, your intuition happens physically; that’s why we call it a “gut feeling.” Learning exactly what your intuition feels like will allow you to identify and trust it quickly and effectively. If something feels “off” to you about a person or situation, but you’re not in tune with your body’s signals, you may be confused and believe you simply have indigestion. By taking an antacid to suppress the discomfort, you might miss the opportunity to quickly get yourself quickly out of a bad situation.
8. Increase your autonomy

The brain will strengthen whatever neural pathways you frequently use, meaning the more you listen to your body’s messages, the louder those messages become. You want those messages to be loud AF, because that means you never again need to listen to anyone else who thinks they know best what you want or need. The latest diet trend can’t screw with your head if you’re filtering everything through your body’s messages. Neither Dr. Oz nor fear-mongering fitness magazines can mislead you, if you’re listening to and trusting your body. If some celebrity starts an “only eat blue foods” trend for example, you won’t have to blindly fall prey. You can simply use your body’s data to inform you. Do you feel good when you eat red, brown, yellow, and green food? Yes? Great, then this diet trend probably isn’t for you.

9. More self-trust


The louder your body’s messages get, the better of a job you can do exploring and addressing whatever it is that needs to be explored and addressed. With practice, you’ll very likely feel more energized, empowered, stronger, happier, hotter, and healthier. With all of those things comes trust in yourself. This is huge, because self-trust is the enemy of anxiety and insecurity. Doing the work to listen to your body’s messages allows you to feel safe, peaceful, healthy, vibrant, joyful, and deeply fulfilled. Knowing that you did that work lets you relax into yourself, trusting that you and your body are always on the same team, and that the answers are always inside you.

3 Unconventional Kettlebell Core Exercises

The fitness industry is constantly evolving. New tools and training methods pop up at your neighborhood gym, on TV, and in magazines on a regular basis. Are they always new, though? You’d be surprised!

Many of these tools are touted as the latest-and-greatest, guaranteed to get you better and faster results than anything you’ve tried before. Their popularity is often short-lived, and they eventually fade away. There are some tools, however, that have been around for centuries. Their popularity may rise and fall as some temporary fads enjoy their moment in the spotlight. But these tools are timeless, and much like certain fashions, they never go out of style.

The kettlebell is an example of one of those timeless tools. It has been around forever, and started gaining popularity again about 15 years ago. When I first got acquainted with kettlebells in 2004, like many people, I thought it was some newfad!

The problem that arises with a new tool, or one that resurfaces, is that suddenly everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon. In the kettlebell community, while it’s exciting that so many people are eager to use these tools, we often see workout enthusiasts as well as trainers executing traditional exercises with poor technique or inventing new (and often questionable) exercises without taking the time to attend a certification or learn from someone who has. The situation is ripe for an accident or injury.

As kettlebells become more widely available in mainstream fitness, it can get quite overwhelming for beginners trying to wade through all the information out there: videos and articles available online, workouts from celebrity trainers on TV and in magazines. It’s hard for a someone who is new to kettlebells to discern between proper and unsafe technique, and to know if what they’re looking at is a properly executed traditional kettlebell exercise, or if not traditional, at the very least a safe movement.

Surprisingly, the kettlebell is still considered a fad by some, but any amount of time invested in understanding and studying its proper use makes it crystal clear just how efficient even the basic exercises are. After running a gym where I taught 25-30 semi-private training classes each week for over six years, I learned that it takes time for some people—even after experiencing tremendous strength gains and fat loss—to believe this training modality can deliver all they need. They often think they need more. “It can’t be that simple!”

To address this, as a business owner and coach you learn to start with a little of what your clients want and a lot of what they need. Case in point: so many people think they must “feel the burn” or they didn’t work their abs.  The question I heard most often at the end of a training session was, “Can we do some abs now?” As a coach, I’m thinking, “You do realize that all our kettlebell training works your abs, right?” But as a business owner I understand that this is the ‘a little of what they want’ part.

If the “burn” is what you are after, the following exercises are right up your alley.

3 Unconventional Kettlebell Core Exercises

Disclaimer: The following three exercises are not considered traditional kettlebell exercises, and are not taught at StrongFirst kettlebell certifications. These exercises just happen to be done most effectively with a kettlebell than with another training tool.

Scroll down to see step-by step instructions for the exercises in this video.

Alternating Knee Tuck:

  1. Begin Supine (laying on your back).
  2. Bell should be sitting on the ground above your head.
  3. Extend your legs and lift them a few inches off the ground.
  4. Grip the kettlebell handle with both hands.
  5. Keep your low back in contact with the floor.
  6. Simultaneously pull the bell over your head and one knee toward your chest.
  7. Fully extend your arms and leg to the starting position.
  8. Repeat the move alternating legs with each repetition.

Half-Kneeling Wood Chop:

  1. Begin with your right knee in a half-kneeling stance.
  2. Place the kettlebell in the rack position on the left side of your body.
  3. “Throw” the bell across and down toward your right hip.
  4. Stay tall and don’t allow the hip to hinge during the movement.
  5. Match the breathing, inhaling on the throw and exhaling on the return.

Standing Cross Crunch:

  1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Hinge and pick up the bell safely by the horns.
  3. Simultaneously pull your right elbow and your left knee together.
  4. Inhale while standing and exhale as you cross your body’s midline and connect the elbow and knee.
  5. Repeat the move for desired reps and switch sides, or alternate sides with each rep.

While I whole-heartedly believe in the effectiveness of the basic kettlebell skills that we teach at our certifications and pride myself in teaching quality movement overquantity, I also understand that some people draw enjoyment and motivation from a little more variety in their training.

If you’re learning kettlebell skills from a trainer, I urge you to verify that he or she is certified to teach them. The fact that someone has a general personal training certification, is published in a popular fitness magazine, or is representing a large, well-known fitness or sports organization, doesn’t automatically guarantee that this person is an authority on all training modalities.

If you want to use a tool that is new to you, remember that quality movement and proper technique are important to help you attain your goals efficiently and keep you injury-free.
