Maximal aerobic speed (MAS) is a well-established training practice implemented by world’s best athletes. By applying this relatively simple training principle, you could not only improve your running, but cycling, rowing, and more, in under five minutes.
Your MAS is your running speed that requires maximal oxygen consumption. This is important because this level of speed, and the resulting demand on the body, provides the best stimulus for you to improve performance.
We can’t necessarily run at our MAS speed for very long, so to improve performance we structure training to be both below and above this speed as per the below steps.
