Load manipulation models applied to recreational athletes aerobic trainings. Participants were randomly distributed in training groups using a combination of two mesocycles of 4 weeks, a undulatory and b staggered, with two daily microcycles, c undulatory and d linear. Training intensity was maintained at 70% of V̇O2max through changes in running speed. Each training group performed continuous running 5 days/week. Training intensity (% of V̇O2max = 70) and volume (% of the maximum distance run/per week) are indicated in the graphs. Adapted from [5]
